Although Daniil Medvedev was defeated in the third round of the group stage of the Final Masters, he will play in the semi-finals.
The Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz was better than Medvedev, with a score of 2:0 – 6:4, 6:4.
- In important moments, I was not good enough, he was better. I had a few chances, I was unlucky, he played a fantastic game in the first set, in the second set I played a bad game. There is no other, I am looking forward to the next match. Medvedev began.
His next rival will be Jannik Sinner.
- At the moment, he is in great shape, the results show that, he can do everything, maybe serve/volley, stay on the baseline, he can do everything and that is why he is in the top. In Vienna I reacted to what he did in Beijing, so I lost again. I need to have better answers to his game. I will try to play like those who took a set from him and to play a better game than against Carlos.
Daniil also commented on the new generation in the “white sport”.
- We can call them the next generation, Holger, Jannik, Carlos, there are Shelton, Filis, there is not much difference between me, Novak, and them except for those 24 Grand Slam titles. When I compare with me, I started playing at the top level at the age of 23, they started at, say, 19. Now I’m here and I’m happy.
