Daniil Medvedev fell to Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open grand final and failed to lift his first career Grand Slam title.
First of all, Daniil spoke about the fall in the grand final: “I don’t like to lose matches. It doesn’t matter if it’s a first round or a Grand Slam final. Of course, it’s just that feeling that you are closer to holding the trophy than when you lose the first round, “he stated.
At the same time, the Russian left a clear reflection on his defeat: “He was better than me today. Surely he could have done better today, but I couldn’t.. That’s why I don’t have the trophy “, clarified.
What’s more, He said that the final lost to Rafael Nadal at the US Open was more painful: “I would say that the US Open hurts more because I finally had a better chance of winning it than I had today. But both losses hurt. Today at my best, I was not happy with myself during the game. I felt like I was doing my best. But it’s not there.
Finally, Medvedev praised the Big 3: “Nothing more to say than they undoubtedly are. I don’t think anyone can argue with the three biggest names in tennis history. I am talking only about the results. I’m not talking off the court. I am talking about the results. What they did in tennis is incredible to me, like I said last time. I’m 25 now. To win nine Australian Opens, I need to win every year until I’m 34. I mean, I believe in myself, but I don’t think I can. The same with Rafa. 13 Roland Garros … We’re talking about some tennis cyborgs in a good way. They are just incredible, “he said.
