Daniil Medvedev claimed the first grass court title of his career by downing Sam Querrey in the final of the Mallorca Championships.

The world No. 2 defeated the 33-year-old American 6-4, 6-2 in the final of the ATP 250 tournament to win his first grass court title.

The Russian was imperious on serve as he did not face a break point – and secured the only break of the opening set to go up 4-3.

Medvedev then broke the world No. 60 in the first game of the second set and struck again for 5-2, before serving out for a convincing triumph.

It is his 11th career ATP title – and first on a surface other than hard courts.

The top seed hit 10 aces, no double faults, and won 89% of points behind his first serve, as well as 65% on his second delivery.

The Russian is the No. 2 seed at Wimbledon – which begins on Monday.

He faces a tough-looking opening round test in Jan-Lennard Struff – who he fell to in the first round in Halle last week.
