Daniil Medvedev won the Masters tournament in Paris on Sunday.

The third-placed Russian defeated Alexander Zverev in three sets in the final and captured his first title in more than a year.

The 24-year-old Medvedev fought back from a set deficit and with 5-7, 6-4 and 6-1 was too strong for the one year younger Zverev.

The German led 4-3 in the second set, but then took only one more game.

Last October Medvedev booked his last tournament victory.

Then the number five in the world was the strongest at the Masters tournament in Shanghai.

A month earlier, he reached the final of the US Open, in which he was defeated by Rafael Nadal.

Medvedev now has a total of eight titles on his honor roll.

He was also previously successful in Cincinnati and Tokyo, among others.

Thanks to his tournament victory in Paris, he takes fourth place in the world ranking from Roger Federer.

Zverev took care of the elimination of Nadal (6-4 and 7-5) in the semi-final on Saturday.

The global number seven won two more tournaments in Cologne last month.

Medvedev and Zverev both participate in the ATP Finals.

The end-of-year tournament with the eight best players of the season starts next Sunday in London.
