Daniil Medvedev continues amazing 2019 by capturing Shanghai Masters title
Daniil Medvedev continued his incredible rise this year by easily defeating Alexander Zverev in the final of the Shanghai Masters.
The Russian, who reached his first Grand Slam final this summer en-route to climbing to number four in the word rankings, put on a Medvedev-masterclass as he cruised to a 6-4, 6-1 win.
It is his second successive Masters-level win after he also won the Cincinnati Open this summer.
“This win is amazing because I think Shanghai is one of the most prestigious Masters events on the tour.” Medvedev told TennisTV.
“Especially over the last 10 years with only three players managing to win this. It’s really special to have my photo out in the corridor for many years.
“I said that during the US Open, it was going to be my thing because everybody was talking about that they need new guys and something new.
“So I gave them something new. I don’t celebrate my wins. I just stay calm, do my job and done.”
Zverev added during the trophy presentation: “I said yesterday after my victory you’re [Medvedev] probably the best player in the world right now. How you’re playing is unbelievable and I wish you nothing but the best.”
