World number 4 Daniil Medvedev is prepared to attack the Australian Open after leading Russia to victory in the ATP Cup final against Italy.
Medvedev defeated Matteo Berrettini 6-4 in the Rod Laver Arena : 6: 2 to give his country an unassailable 2-0 lead in the team event.
The success of the 24-year-old followed the 6: 1: 6: 2 demolition of the Italian Fabio Fognini by his fellow countryman Andrey Rublev the previous Sunday.
The senior Russians were clinical throughout the ATP Cup, and none of the players dropped a match.
Russia is the second nation to win the ATP Cup after Serbia won the first tournament under the leadership of Novak Djokovic last year.
Medvedev has reached the fourth round of the Australian Open in the last two years and is still pursuing a first Grand Slam title.
