Prior to Medvedev's win, Andrey Rublev defeated Fognini in the opening singles.
The Melbourne tournament is the second ATP Cup, which premiered in January 2020. In the first one, the Russian team reached the semifinals, losing only to the Serbian team, who went on to win the championship.
This year, in the group stage of the tournament, the Russians beat the teams of Argentina and Japan, and in the semifinals, the team defeated the Germans. Rublev and Medvedev won all of their four matches in the tournament.
The next matches for the Russians will be at the Australian Open, lasting from February 8 until February 21.
