Kei Nishikori dug himself out of an early hole on Sunday to defeat Daniil Medvedev 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 in the men’s final of the Brisbane International.

For Nishikori, the tournament’s second seed and world No. 9, it was his first tour victory since he won his fourth straight Memphis Open title in June 2016. The two last met at last year’s Rakuten Japan Open final, when the Russian beat Nishikori in straight sets.
