And so, London bid farewell to the Nitto ATP Finals, after its final hosting of the season-ending event.
Since 2009, the best eight players on the planet, each year, would come to the 02 Arena and do battle for the honours, leading to countless memorable moments, and this year was no different.

A gripping two tie-breaks could only decide the winner here, Thiem’s brutal one-handed backhand in full flow, against the unrelenting defence of Nadal. A high quality match, which pushed both to their limits.
A bizarre contest, which ultimately went the way of the Russian, who was the more clinical of the two when it mattered. A shock for sure though, seeing Medvedev taking apart the five-time champion.
The tournament was played at a high-level up until this point, but the final four took it to another level. Nadal had the match on his racket, as he was serving for a place in the showpiece, but just as he had done all week, Medvedev would find a way to stay in the contest, to eventually stun the Spaniard.
Arguably the best match of the week, and one of the best matches during this disrupted season. If Thiem was to make back-to-back finals, he would have to recover from losing four match points in the second set, and then fought back from 4-0 down in the deciding tie-break, against Djokovic…unreal!
It looked as if Thiem would stroll to victory, after clinching the first set with ease. Though just as he did against Nadal, his Russian opponent found a way, in a way only Medvedev can explain. A ridiculous recovery from the 24-year old, in a final of the highest order which included pressure and unwillingness to fold from both men. Thiem once again a beaten finalist, while Medvedev would ensure that the first winner in London was a Russian, and the final winner was also a Russian. The perfect finale.
