Daniil Medvedev has a good chance to become world No. 3 overcoming Roger Federer on the rankings within the year ends. The Moscow native was asked if he sees himself potentially becoming No. 1 in 2020. "It's tough to answer this question, because I always say that my first goal is to win every match I play, and that's how I can actually become No.
1 if you win a lot of matches in a row just like I did", said Medvedev. "But to be honest with you, when you asked this question right now, I kind of thought, yeah, I don't have that much points to defend till I would say USA next year.
But I'm going to try my best to show great results as I did here, and if something like this is going to happen, it's just a big bonus." Asked if he will play in Moscow, Medvedev replied: "I'm going there if I catch a flight at 1:00 in the morning.
If not, there is one at 11:00. Hopefully I can make it to 1:00. I don't have my bags ready. But at this moment, I'm not sure. I need to see how my body reacts to the flight, because it's still a long flight, nine hours.
I think it's five-hour difference. It's not easy. Some players did it. I remember Roberto Bautista Agut, when he was in the final, he was playing Moscow. Lost, though, in the first round. So I will have to decide when I'm on-site there, but I'm going there."
