Daniil Medvedev admits he is struggling for confidence, but insists: ‘I don’t feel burnt out’

Daniil Medvedev says he is ‘physically and mentally ready’ to finish the season strongly, although he has admitted his confidence has taken a hit.

Medvedev has struggled of late, losing in the first round of the French Open and failing to make an impression in Vienna too.

He will finish his season with the Paris Masters and ATP Finals, and he is eager to finish the season well.

“I’m feeling not so bad,” Medvedev told the ATP official website.

“Of course, [my] confidence could be a little bit higher when you go further in the tournaments. But physically and mentally I feel ready for the end of the season.

“I don’t feel burnt out, so that’s the most important [thing]. I’m ready to fight and ready to show my best”.

Medvedev was the breakout star of 2019 but has failed to replicate that form this year.

He, though, fairly points out that it has been something of a unique and challenge season.

“When we came back it was [a] different situation. It still is. Tournaments are still a little bit different.

“It was tougher to, in one way, schedule the season. When I say this, usually you know how the season goes.

“You have your preseason, then you play tournaments. You know when you go to vacation. You know when you come back from vacation.

“This season is really different. So it’s tough to compare to other seasons. So talking about me as a player, I’m trying to progress every day”.
