Daniil Medvedev defeated Alexander Zverev in straight sets, 6-4 6-1, to win the Rolex Shanghai Masters. The Russian player, speaking in a press conference, said: "I can say that, well, here I looked invincible this week since I'm the winner.
Because, as I say, I don't like to talk about future, because you never know what's future got for you. That's why my answer stays the same. Okay, this week, yes, I probably was invincible, but for the next upcoming weeks, I'm not sure.
And even this week there were some matches that I could have definitely, let's say, lose a set and we don't know how it would have gone. But I'm here as a winner, so happy about it" On how he managed to have success against Zverev breaking the losing streak, Medvedev added: "I think I just became a better player than I was when I played him four times before.
For example, it was same against Coric. Before the final in St. Petersburg, I was quite nervous because I lost four matches, I think, I lost against Coric, and the score was I think kind of the same, 6-3, 6-1. Here it's 6-4, 6-1.
I think I became a better player than I was even in the beginning of the year, and that's why some of these results can change like this."
