Good luck», commented Medvedev on the court. Later, already at a press conference, the winner of a Grand Slam indicated: «The game was mentally very tough for both of us. Jannik dominated the beginning of the first set, but we were playing very long points that always ended with some mistake from me.

I felt a bit heavy on my legs. At the beginning of the second set I said to myself ‘something is wrong, he is playing better than me, I need to change details because everything is even’ So I started to be more direct with some shots.

I was able to follow that line in the second set and mentally push him until the end of the match.» «The feeling is great. It’s barely the third tournament of the season and I already have a trophy. Last year I needed like 12 tournaments!

In Adelaide I played well, I lost to Djokovic but we all know who he is. The Australian Open was disappointing. Mentally it’s hard to come back when I came out of the Top 10 and lose in the third round of a Grand Slam when you think you can win it, so I’m glad I found my game.
