Novak Djokovic was asked about what's next for him after his quarter-final loss to Stefanos Tsitsipas in Shanghai. The Belgrade native doesn't plan to compete in Vienna or Basel tournaments as he plays an exhibition match with Rafael Nadal in Kazakhstan on October 24.
"Scheduled to play Paris and London for now", said Djokovic, who is also committed to the Davis Cup Finals in Madrid. Asked how he is doing physically, Djokovic replied: "No issues. Thank you for asking. No issues."
Asked if Tsitsipas has the potential to become the number one in the world in the future, Djokovic concluded: "He definitely has, yes." Daniil Medvedev spoke about his mindset. The Russian said: "Of course I worry in a good way that I know I need to keep focus.
I know I need to keep working every day hard in order not to lose this level. It has been working well for me, but for example, talking about yesterday, I don't think I played good but managed to win, managed to go through a really tough match where I saved I think five set points in the first set.
Even, you know, not talking about weeks, it can be in one match that you drop level and then you bring it up. So for sure I'm aware of this, and I'm going to try to do my best to never let it down."
