Foreign tennis enthusiasts are impressed by Daniil Medvedev’s performance in ATP Finals
One of the best tennis players in the world, Daniil Medvedev, changed the course of the final match by winning the ATP Final Tournament.
During the award ceremony, he thanked everyone involved in this victory and recalled the first victory of a Russian in this tournament. In 2009 Nikolay Davydenko won the final of the tournament. In an interview after the game, Medvedev told reporters that that victory inspired him when he was a 13-year-old athlete.
The final score of the game against Dominik Tim from Austria was 2: 1 (4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4).
Nikolai Davydenko was once invited to the awards ceremony for the winners of the youth tournament. That tournament was won by a very emotional tennis player who, during the game, threw a racket so that it flew outside the sports complex. It turned out that the 13-year-old was Medvedev.
Daniil Medvedev, after winning the ATP final over Austrian Dominik Thiem with a score of 4: 6, 7: 6 (7: 2), 6: 4, turned to the previously mentioned first Russian to win the ATP Finals, and also spoke about his plans for the future.
“Nikolai, you were the first to win in London. I was 13 when you bombed all the best tennis players in the world and showed incredible tennis. I am happy that we managed to close the first and last Masters in London with the Russian flag. “
When asked about plans for the future, the athlete gave an unequivocal answer. Medvedev said that he wants to rest and most likely will not go anywhere. He explained this decision by quarantine and lack of flights. Tennis player also noted that he wanted to spend more time with his wife. He also talked about the Australian Open, which is being postponed indefinitely. After the end of the match, in an interview, Medvedev said that in any case he would try and prepare.
On the tournament’s official Twitter page, a huge number of foreign tennis fans congratulated the winner:
