Daniil Medvedev – ‘Diego didn’t show his best tennis’ as he claims a Paris semi-final place

Daniil Medvedev has booked his place in the Paris Masters semi-finals after defeating sixth seed Deigo Schwartzman in straight sets.

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

Earlier this week Daniil Medvedev admitted on the ATP official website that his confidence had taken a bit of a hit going into Paris.

But the quarterfinal clash saw him beat Schwartzman 6-3 6-1 in impressive style.

The big-hitting Russian did not face a break point and was near perfect on first serve winning 27 of 28 points.

The win incidentally now puts him ahead of Roger Federer in fourth place of the world rankings.

Unfortunately the loss means Diego Schwartzman will have to wait to see if he will still be able to make his first ATP finals in London.

The Argentinian only needed one more win to secure his place and will now have to wait and see how Carreno Busta fairs against Rafa Nadal in their quarterfinal match.

After the match Medvedev said: “It was a good match.

“Diego didn’t show his best tennis. I managed to keep my level high throughout the match and he gave me some errors, which gave me control of the match.

“It didn’t feel like a short match, as there are always rallies with Diego.

“I’m happy to have won quickly today. I’m pleased to have gone deep in Paris, as it will help for the [Nitto ATP Finals] in London.

“I produced some good tennis so I felt good today” concluded Medvedev.
