Medvedev shares keys to beat Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic

Daniil Medvedev commented on the match ups against Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Speaking in a press conference, the Moscow native said: "I basically felt, I mean, playing against this big three opponents or anybody who is tough, you need to adapt your tactics.

I felt really tired, which is completely normal, this match. I just felt that if I continue just kind of pushing the ball and staying solid, I'm going to destroy myself and he's going to destroy me. That's why I knew that the only chance is to go aggressive, and since I'm a good player, I was able to play good even playing kind of not my style, and that's actually -- that's why it's a big victory, also.

Consistency, that is the biggest key to this summer. I mean, because, to be honest with you, every match I played, even the match against Rafa, I felt really good inside, only confident of my game. I mean, I was making my opponents doubt a lot what they should do to beat me, and I lost just two matches.

Yeah, that was the biggest key. And after, of course, I tried to adapt my tactics every time I play someone different, especially if he's starting to beat me." On his physical condition, Medvedev said: "I'm not even sure.

It's, like, between hamstring and glute. Just felt I would say a bit tight and painful there. Decided to call the physio to make sure that it's not going to get worse. After I called the physio I felt nothing. So everything should be good."
