Dubai tennis: Daniil Medvedev happy to extend winning streak
“I’m just really happy to be on a streak right now. Streaks always end. I will try to extend mine as long as I can. [I am] feeling great. Hopefully can do some good things here in Dubai, Medvedev said at the post-match press conference.
Two titles in two weeks are great for his confidence, Medvedev said. It feels great because confidence is very important in tennis. We all know it. I think every tennis player has different approaches to confidence.
“For me, it’s more important to have the confidence kind of like in the moment than, for example, remembering I played good there last year. So, for me, it’s important in the moment. Right now, I feel great. Even today, I felt like I was far from my best tennis, but I managed to close it out kind of in two sets. That always helps, said the Russian, who returned to the Dubai event after four years.
