"Happy to get the win" says Medvedev after securing ATP Cup final berth

Russian duo Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev secured an ATP Cup final berth following victories over Zverev in Struff.

After a marathon match agianst Zverev, Medvedev said in the press conference:

“We're really happy to get the win, that's the most important. Tough matches [for] both of us. Both [Andrey and I] lost the first set. [It was] not easy because we had two days off before the match… But happy we're in the final. That's the most important.”

And indeed it was a stellar comeback for the Russian side and for Medvedev who said of the match:

“When it's against Sascha and you are 6-3, 3-2 break down, many times you're going to lose a match. But I needed to keep my chances alive for the team first of all, for the country. I just tried to stay there, got a bit tight maybe. I just did my job and I'm really happy about it.”

Medvedev also had words of praise for Andrey Rublev who overcome also a slow start to beat Struff securing Russia the first point:

“Andrey is an amazing player. Last year, what he did [was] something special. Today in the first set, he was not hitting as he can... But he managed to keep his nerves, and that’s what champions do. He managed to get a point for the team so I could [have] it easier.”
