Former world no. 1, Daniil Medvedev, claimed his third title after defeating his fellow countryman and friend Andrey Rublev in the Dubai ATP final on Saturday, 6-2, 6-2.

The Russian not only won two consecutive titles prior to Dubai in Rotterdam and Qatar but also ended Novak Djokovic's 20-match win streak to reach the finals. 

He has 18 titles currently under his belt, and his sensational run has made him a force to be reckoned with.
