Daniil Medvedev gives his verdict as he storms into ATP Finals decider in Turin
A stunning semi-final performance Daniil Medvedev blew Casper Ruud away as he moved to within a game of defending his ATP Finals title in Turin.
Medvedev came through three tough matches in the group stages but found progress a lot more smooth against debutant Casper Ruud in the semi-finals.
The young Norwegian battled to victory against Andrey Rublev on Friday to book his spot in the last four but second seed Medvedev was far too solid, the Russian winning 6-4 6-2.
Djokovic or Zverev await!

“As soon as you are a set and a break up you feel like you are in control, but that is when the danger is,” Medvedev said in his on-court interview.
“You need to stay focused and fight for every point. In the last game I had 0/30 on my serve, and until the last point, it is never over. So I am happy I was able to finish it.
“I think all the matches were a great level. Different opponents and different styles. I managed to win all the matches. It was not an easy match. When you are in the final you can’t complain, so I am just looking forward to tomorrow and hopefully I can have my best match.”
