Post-match comments

Medvedev on the match: "Confidence was key for me today and winning a Masters 1000 is great for confidence. The second set was easier for both of us to hit winners because we could not run anymore"

On his underarm serve in the second set: "I did not want to disrespect him in any way, that's why I did it at 30-30 not 40-0, my wide serve wasn't working as I would like to"

On his confidence changing since last year: "Yes definitely. After the first set I was exhausted, I'm not going to lie but then I looked across the net and saw he was about to fall over also and that gave me confidence."

Medvedev's keys to victory

Medvedev kept very solid on his serve, getting 67% of his first serves in and winning 74% of those points. Zverev also definitely helped him with winning only 21% of his second serve points, including seven double faults. Medvedev also moved incredibly well and can definitely trouble Djokovic in his next match.

Zverev's ranking impact

Alexander Zverev won two round-robin matches and then lost in the semifinals, meaning that he stands to gain 1100 points in London this year. If he goes undefeated, Zverev would overtake Tsitsipas at No. 6 (depending on the Greek's results) and get within five points of taking the No. 5 spot from Roger Federer.
2:17 AM2 years ago

Medvedev's ranking impact

Last year at the ATP Finals, Medvedev failed to win a single match, meaning that if he were to win the tournament undefeated, he would gain the full 1500 points. Of course, due to COVID, no one will be losing points, but this still helps Medvedev massively. It cuts down the point difference between himself and Thiem at No. 3 from 2155 points to 655 points, getting the Russian much closer to his new career-high ranking.
