Let’s check out all of the key
information from Day 3 of the season-ending tournament, which will be

Day 3 Recap

Medvedev and Zverev put on a
spectacular serving display as part of a match that lived up to the
hype. It wasn’t decided until deep in a third-set tiebreaker.

The pair combined for 32 aces (18 for
Zverev and 14 for Medvedev) and just three double faults. They also
saved seven of the match’s eight break-point opportunities, with the
only exception coming early in the first set when the second-seeded
Russian broke in the German’s first service game.

Zverev won the second-set tiebreaker
rather convincingly after dropping the first set, and he raced out to
a 4-2 lead in the deciding breaker before Medvedev mounted a rally by
winning four straight points to take a 6-4 advantage.

The 2021 US Open champion failed to
convert his first two match points before winning the next two points
to pick up the crucial victory.

when coming to net to help overcome a 48-36 winner deficit.
