In an on court interview Alexander Zverev spoke about how it feels to reach the Shanghai Masters final for the first time after defeating Matteo Berrettini in straight sets, 6-3 6-4. The German said: "I thought I played some decent tennis this week obviously.
Being in a Masters final is also something very special, first final in China and looking forward to play some good tennis tomorrow. Playing against Matteo this year has been very difficult. I lost to him once, he is playing like a top ten, top eight guy, so I wish him nothing but the best and reach London.
If he keeps playing like this, he will be difficult to beat." Zverev also spoke about the Russian Daniil Medvedev: "I played some fantastic matches this week and I hope it doesn't change. He is playing great, six finals in a row.
I played the best players in the world in those finals - Roger (Federer), Dominic (Thiem), Rafa (Nadal), Novak (Djokovic). It's gonna be difficult whoever plays because they deserve to be there. I beat some great players, I lost some tough matches as well but hopefully it's gonna be an entertaining one."
