Make no mistakes though, Medvedev is steely in his intent to hold onto the ATP Finals title. Three round robin matches facing Hubert Hurkacz, Zverev and then home charge Jannik Sinner (despite being a dead rubber) and three matches going right down to the wire. Medvedev means business in Turin.
“I don't like to lose, so it's very tough for me, like in the third set when I was down, I definitely didn't play the way I play usually, I just couldn't afford myself to run anymore like from corner to corner,” admitted Medvedev, saving two match points to edge past Sinner.
“I just went for it. When you win three matches out of three, you like everything.”
