Russian Daniil Medvedev assessed his chances in a fight with a Serb Novak Djokovic in Melbourne.
“It seems to me that he is not playing the same way as before. Although I may be mistaken. In his youth, he arranged real madness on the court. He played with Murray for five hours and never slowed down the pace, only constantly added.
Now a lot has changed. Last year he lost three times to young tennis players. I will also try to find a way to win. We met twice, and I was able to impose a fight on him, although I lost. But since then I have grown a lot.
Novak gives you time on the court, unlike Federer, who is hitting a rising ball, or Raonic, who chases you the whole match. He is a great tennis player, but at least you can build a game against him. So there are chances, “the Australian Open press service quotes Medvedev as saying.
