An ATP star says that winning his first grass court title will be a special feeling and a ‘great thing’ for his career ahead of Wimbledon.  

Daniil Medvedev, who has shown his best tennis predominantly on the hard courts, is confident he can perform well on the grass after a difficult spell on the clay-courts.

The Russian has enjoyed a fruitful week at the Mallorca Open and will face Sam Querrey in Saturday’s final before heading to Wimbledon.

“I know that I can play good on grass,” said the World No 2.

“Unfortunately we don’t have that many tournaments, only one ATP 500 and one Grand Slam. It’s going to be a special feeling [if I] win my first title on grass.

“I still don’t have one on clay, even if I have one final. Adding these titles, especially on different surfaces, can help your confidence and it’s just a great thing for your career.”

Medvedev will face Querrey in the final after the 33-year-old blasted 18 aces past Frenchman Adrian Mannarino and won 97 percent of first serve points en route to a 6-4, 6-3 victory.
