I didn’t think I could win the title. MEDVEDEV
Soon after the match, Daniil confirmed that he was surprised with his achievement to say
“It feels amazing. At the beginning of the week, I didn’t think it was going to be possible because I was playing quite good but I didn’t feel I was at the right form to win a title.
I started quite slow the tournament I would say. I could’ve even lost the first match, and finally, I won the tournament without dropping a set, which is quite an amazing achievement, and I’m really happy about it.”
Medvedev will head to the US Open where he will face Evgeny Donskoy in the opener. Another week, another life.
