Zverev, He also defeated world number one Novak Djokovic on SaturdayHe is only the fourth player to beat the top two players in the world in the semi-finals and finals of the season-ending tournament.

The 6-4, 6-4 victory was also a sweet revenge for Zverev, who lost three sets to Medvedev in the round-robin stage and lost the last five games to Russia.

It was an almost impeccable performance from the third seed, especially in the Serb, where Medvedev failed to exert any real pressure during the competition.

The 24-year-old Zverev, who also won the O2 title in London in 2018, has won the competition for the second time in four years.

The German, who won Olympic gold in the summer, said in an on-court interview: “It was good. I won the World Tour final against a player who lost five times in a row in the final, so I had to play one. My best games. I am happy to receive

“There’s no better way to end the season than to win here. I’m clearly incredibly happy but I’m very excited for next year.”

In the doubles final, Joe Salisbury and Rajiv Ram were defeated by Pierre-Hughes Herbert and Nicholas Mahut.

Salisbury was the first British player in the history of the event to reach the doubles showpiece and was looking to emulate Andy Murray, who won the singles title in 2016.

He and American Ram, who had another great season, narrowly defeated Herbert and Mahut in the group stage, but the French pair were the best pair of the day and they deserved a 6-4 7-6 (7-0) victory.

“It’s clearly disappointing,” Salisbury said. “It was a bit of a combination of them playing very well, I think they served particularly well, and we didn’t find it much today, we didn’t play our best.”

Salisbury is set to partner Neil Skupski for Great Britain in the upcoming Davis Cup final, and their first game is expected to be with Herbert and Mahut, who could be crucial in the opening clash with France next Saturday.

He said: “Of course we’re going to have a very tough game. I’m sure I can play better than I do today. We know that whatever happens to our team for the Davis Cup doubles, we’re going to be against those guys.” We have to play very well to win but I am confident we can do that. “
