Medvedev won the first 12 points in front of a crowd that featured a few famous people, including Jon Bon Jovi.

Before Sinner began to try to get back into the match, the Russian won his first two service games at loves and built a 30-0 lead in his third one.

Sinner eventually broke Medvedev in a comeback, which required five break points.

Medvedev avoided the first three break points with successful serves, while the fourth was avoided with a successful backhand.

With a brilliant forehand volley winner, Sinner, who persisted in trying to break him, succeeded.

After Sinner broke back to tie the first set at 3-3, Medvedev displayed his tenacity.

After Sinner’s forehand clipped the net cord and landed in the doubles lane, Medvedev won a 20-stroke rally to earn a breakpoint.

In the second set, Medvedev again broke Sinner’s serve after breaking it at 6-5.
