Daniil Medvedev feels confident ahead of his next matches against Roger” federer>, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in the future. The Russian player believes the gap between him and the older guys is not as big as it was in the past.
“I think I gained experience by playing these matches. Novak, for example, I finally managed to beat him this year, not on my best surface. It was the fourth time I played him. I was getting closer and closer to what I was feeling.
Finally, I beat him. I think I just need to go further in the tournaments, to play them more, and that’s how I will find my rhythm and my tactic to beat them more. This moment I only have one victory.” On his loss to Nadal, Medvedev added: “I need to see the match on the TV to say for sure, but congrats to him.
I need to do better next time. In the first game, he started off very well. I had breakpoints. Even if I didn’t win them, it was a good beginning for the match. But after the match, my energy started decreasing progressively.”
