Daniil Medvedev excited after overtaking Roger Federer in Race To London

Daniil Medvedev is third on the ATP Race To London as he overtook Roger Federer. The Moscow native said: "Those are unbelievable feelings. I could have never dreamed that I would play six consecutive finals. And those are not little finals: three in Masters 1000s plus a Grand Slam.

That's something amazing. Overcoming Roger on the rankings is something I have been dreaming since my childhood. He may not be at his best now, but he still plays well, constantly plays tournaments, tries to earn points. I have to try to improve every day.

I worked for it, trained, did everything. But I could not expect I would manage to do it. Hopefully, there will just be more wins. I definitely have ideas about how to win a Grand Slam, play the final or semifinal again. I want to play well and I work for it every day."

Asked if he doesn't consider himself as a bad guy anymore, Medvedev replied: "It's not up to me to say if I got free of it or not. If in ten years we will still speak about it, then I am a bad guy. I do not consider myself like this.

I can be emotional, I can make mistakes just because I grow very quickly. But I think people see who I am, the real one and they can decide alone." Medvedev pulled out of the ATP Moscow because of fatigue.
