"I know I can play good on grass" says Medvedev after reaching maiden grass final

Daniil Medvedev reached his first final on a grass court at the Mallorca Championships and it was a good comeback win for the Russian.

Medvedev started off his grass season in Halle with a very disappointing match against Struff but now he is in the final of a grass event. The event in question is the Mallorca Championships and to reach it Medvedev completed a comeback win over Carreno Busta. He said:

“It was not an easy match and it was in very hot conditions. I think we were both struggling physically in the third set. But I think it was a high-quality match. It was very important to start good in the sets, this is what I didn’t manage to do in the first set. I had a lot of opportunities to try to come back, but he was better."

Medvedev racepped what worked later saying:

“This is where I was better in the second and third set. It was a tight battle, and I’m really happy with the second and especially the third set."

The Russian was happy to reach his first grass final saying it boosts his confidence:

“I know that I can play good on grass. 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.”
