In an interview with Tass, Daniil Medvedev spoke about his trip from Shanghai, where he won the title on Sunday, to Moscow, Russia. The world No. 4 said: "I got here on Monday at 5:00 PM. During my air flight I saw the Black Clan and There once was in Stockholm movies.
Very good films, I really liked them. It was interesting to watch. I also checked the Internet to read about national team's results. And I slept for several hours." Asked if he will play the Davis Cup finals in Madrid, Medvedev replied: "At the end of the season it's about how many tanks you have left.
Everyone is tired and you have to listen to your body. The career is long. I am looking forward to the next weeks, but I cannot promise anything." Asked if he wants to become world No. 1, Medvedev replied: "My main goal is to win every match.
That's the only way to become world No. 1. This year, this approach helped me winning many matches. If next year my momentum will continue, then I will have the chance to be world No. 1." After his win in Shanghai, Medvedev pulled out of the Kremlin Cup in Moscow (this week) and the Erste Bank Open in Vienna (next week) with fatigue.
Speaking on Monday in Antwerp, David Goffin spoke about possibly winning a gold medal for Belgium at next year's Olympic Games in Tokyo. Goffin said: "That's tough because there are only three remaining spots. Per now it's still far away. When the Big Three are there, almost all the spots are filled."
