The Russian won 17 of 20 points on his first delivery. He took 42 minutes to win the first set and took approximately 38 minutes to win the second set. “It was a tough match, no matter the score. I managed to break him from time to time and that is what made the difference, said the US Open champion.”I felt, watching Casper through all the year this year, that he is one of the smartest players on the Tour. Before the start of the hardcourt season, everyone was talking about him like a clay court player and here he is in his first ATP Finals, in the semifinals. The first time I was 0-3 and I went home.”
Daniil Medvedev says that he awaits the winner of the other semi-finals and that he will try to give his level best to win the finals. “At this moment we are the Top 3 in the rankings,” Daniil Medvedev said as only 3 players Novak, Alexander Zverev, and Daniil himself are left in the tournament. “I am looking forward to a great match on Sunday no matter who I play. When you are in the final you can’t complain, hopefully, I can have my best match (in the final). I will try to be a better player.” continued Daniil Medvedev.
