Talking after the match in the press conference – Medvedev said that he was happy with the way he served throughout the match and is happy how things have progressed for the team in the tournament.
“Today I should’ve served better, but I’m really happy to bring the point to the team. The most important thing is that we are winning a lot of matches. We didn’t lose a tie in the group, and we are really looking forward to Saturday.”
He also went on to say that there is still room for improvement in his game and needs to keep up focus even when things are going well.
“Serving for the match, I relax a bit when I shouldn’t do this., I missed some easy forehands that normally if you’re focused and you’re doing everything right, you’re not going to miss them. I bring him back to the game. Then he starts to believe in himself, he starts to play much, much better.”
