Daniil Medvedev has now reached six finals in a row starting from the Washington's Citi Open. His streak is still open as he will face Alexander Zverev in the Shanghai Masters championship clash. The Moscow native was asked if he will try to equal Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic's 17 consecutive finals.
Medvedev said: "I do think it's impossible, but, well, there are two guys who have done it, which I actually didn't know it, which is just unbelievable. I don't have any words to describe this. I mean, for myself making six in a row including three Masters and one Grand Slam is something I could never dream of, to be honest.
But I want to keep the momentum going and hope I can make it to seven or eight. Let's see about 17 later." On his next opponent Alexander Zverev, Medvedev added: "I did say before this year and during this year in the beginning that Sascha was the best in our, let's say, NextGen group.
He won three Masters when none of us were even close to doing this. Positions has changed a little bit, so I think I can contest him right now, because I think it's 3-0, 4-0 for him in head-to-head. But still both amazing players with amazing serves. Even yesterday I saw some serves like 235, which is also just exceptional."
