(Reuters) – It was third time lucky for Russian Daniil Medvedev on Sunday as he clinched a 7-6(3) 6-4 win over David Goffin in the final of the Cincinnati Masters.

Medvedev saved two breaks points while serving for the match at 5-4 in the second set before winning the next four, capped off by an ace, to close out his dogged Belgian opponent.

It was the second title of the year for Medvedev, who had lost finals on the past two Sundays, to Nick Kyrgios in Washington and Rafa Nadal in Montreal.

Medvedev pulled off an amazing comeback to beat world number one Novak Djokovic in a semi-final on Saturday.
