Daniil Medvedev at Australian Open

‘I’m feeling good’ – In-form Daniil Medvedev issues Australian Open warning


Daniil Medvedev is up and running at the Australian Open after crushing Vasek Pospisil in straight sets on Tuesday.

The world number four, who has won the Paris Masters, ATP Finals, and ATP Cup in his last three tournaments, was in dominant mood on Margaret Court Arena, winning 6-2, 6-2, 6-4.

It extends Medvedev’s impressive winning streak to 15 matches, with 14 of them coming against opponents who were sitting in the top ten at the time.

“To be honest, it was good not to lose any matches (at the ATP Cup) but on the other hand, we played on Sunday and had a lot of matches against tough opponents,” Medvedev said.

“I’m really happy that I finished fast today. I was a bit nervous because it’s first match of first Grand Slam of the year, so I started a bit tight.

“But I could come back really fast and I started to control the match, so I’m really happy with this.

“I didn’t know how it would be physically but I managed to finish it fast and I’m feeling good.

“I knew I had to go out and win the match because that’s my job.”
