A $9-million-prize-money pot was at stake at the ATP Finals in London. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal earned $645,000, including $215,000 for appearance fee and $430,000 for two round-robin matches win. Novak Djokovic only won one match and earned $430,000 in total.
Daniil Medvedev was the only player who got $215,000 having lost all the three group stage matches. The winner Stefanos Tsitsipas got $2.6 million, while the finalist Dominic Thiem got $1,302,000. Medvedev felt upbeat about his loss to Jeremy Chardy in the Paris Masters: "I'm still confident about my game.
Paris was not the result I wanted, but it happens, it's tennis. Jeremy played a great match, so good. I had my opportunities, didn't use them. Every match you play, you can lose or win, there's no draw or anything like in other sports."
On himself, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev, Medvedev said: “Hopefully, we're going to have a lot of matches to come throughout our careers, in the later stages of the tournament. Hopefully, we can have a lot of great matches to come."
Matteo Berrettini is humble and honest: "I am happy people say it because I am a guy who tends to put everything inside myself. Vincenzo Santopadre, who has been my coach for ten years, grew me this way: the man comes first, then the player.
If I am like this it's because my family is like this. My mental coach figured out my soul before me, but step by step I am getting there."
