Daniil Medvedev in some nonchalance went past the force of Dominic Thiem to clinch his first-ever major title. The Nitto ATP Finals tournament scheduled for Turin, Italy 2021 onwards, saw some Medvedev magic in London.
The 24-year-old becomes the first Russian to win the ATP Finals title since 2009. He beat World No. 1, 2, and 3 en route to his title.
After the title-winning performance, Medvedev’s next stop was Gael Monfils’ and Andy Murray’s Twitch stream. Starting, he said, “It’s just unbelievable because it’s 10 matches I’ve won in a row and two of the biggest tournaments at the end of the year.“
However, Andy Murray was quite amused by the lack of emotions shown by Medvedev or his coach, Gilles Cervara after the win. The Russian, quite clearly mentioned that lack of emotions did not mean he wasn’t happy with the win.
“I know how to keep my emotions, not all the time, [as], especially the bad ones, are tough to control. But I know how to control them and [that] lets me [do] this thing, he expressed.
“My coach can have emotions, but I think they may be turned the camera when it was the wrong moment,” Medvedev further expressed.
Daniil Medvedev went winless in all three games of his first-ever appearance in the Nitto ATP Finals in the year 2019. Coming back, he beat World No. 1, 2, and 3 a year later to win the title. Quite the turnaround.
Daniil Medvedev Opens Up On The Best Victory Of His Life
Daniil Medvedev continuing on the show expressed that one of the best wins he ever had was the one over Monfils when he defeated him at FIFA 3-0.
Much to the laughter from the Frenchman, the Russian added that it was a special moment for him and that he celebrated big time.
“One of the best victories in my life is also when I beat you 3-0 in FIFA! [That was] something special. I was celebrating. I was not even calm there,” said Medvedev.
However, Murray put it out that he knew at least 10 people who were better than Medvedev on PlayStation.
“Daniil I will get you back, no worries brother,” were Monfils’ words to end it.
