The Russian Tennis Federation chief Shamil Tarpischev spoke to TASS about the US Open final between Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal. "This was an outstanding match and an outstanding tournament for Medvedev. Unfortunately, he ran out of luck, Daniil had a significant advantage at the beginning of the fifth set, and these moments beg to be seized.
In any case, Medvedev has great potential for his further growth and this is great. Now he needs to rest after such a journey." Tarpischev also made a comparison between Medvedev and Roger Federer: "The most exhilarating is that Medvedev is not over yet with improving his skills and he keeps progressing.
He has not yet reached the apex of his abilities. In this sense, he resembles Federer, who blossomed upon reaching maturity," Through an Instagram video, Nadal said: "I’m just in the car coming back, I’m super tired but very very happy.
That was one of the matches that I will never forget, Daniil is a great champion and I wish him all the best in the future. For me personally, this victory means a lot after an amazing battle. There were very high emotions out there, and as always I want to say thank you very much for all your support.
It has been unforgettable these weeks in New York and you guys have been amazing. Many thanks for your support and I’ll be in touch soon, COME ON!"
