Daniil Medvedev insisted that he had”no regrets” after his exhilarating fightback against Rafael Nadal at the US Open final ended in heartbreak.
The Russian agonisingly missed out to a first Grand Slam title games at Flushing Meadows.
Medvedev, who won his first Masters title last month would have become the first player to win the US Open in two places behind.
Even the New York showpiece has been that the 23-year-old’s fourth final of the North American summer that is hard-court and he has climbed into a career-high world Number 4.
“It was an amazing match. It’s an wonderful story. This summertime is amazing for me personally. I will remember every minute of this ” Medvedev said.
“I have a really good memory when we talk about tennis. I’ll certainly remember it even when I am, like, 70 years old”
Medvedev insisted he had nothing to lose into the final in Washington, Montreal, Cincinnati in his first Grand Slam final after his runs and at the US Open this summer.
He had become only the third person to accomplish that accomplishment but such as Ivan Lendl at 1982 and Andre Agassi in 1995, finished in New York.
“After the summer that I had no anxiety. I had all. I think it’s Rafa who had something to lose,” additional Medvedev.
“I went out there, I gave all that I am, and I’m proud of myself. He had been the one. I must acknowledge it. I don’t have any regrets.”
The Russian joked he had already thought of what to mention in his speech until he mounted a fightback, when he trailed by two sets and a rest.
The New York crowds had previously booed him during the fortnight for taunting them throughout his on-court interviews but needed them cheering his name as he threatened to generate a comeback triumph.
Medvedev had break points in the next game of the final series but then fell a break behind only to have an chance until he was finally beaten on Nadal’s third tournament stage.
“My wife always tells me I have to be pleased about myself occasionally, because I am really self-criticising,” said Medvedev.
“For example, I’m not pleased to lose, but I have to give my credit to these two weeks. It’s been wonderful.
“Prior to the championship, my very best result was fourth round of a Grand Slam. I had any issues. I did not play as good as I desired. But I managed to maintain the final. I managed to give a massive struggle to among the greatest players in the history of the sport.”
Medvedev was bid to become the first player not in their uterus to win a Grand Slam title and divide the’Big Three dominance’ .
Nadal, who has now shared the 12 Grand Slam titles together with Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, is confident Medvedev will have his moment.
“He’s a great, good future in front. I really believe he will be able to win Grand Slams, a few of them,” Nadal said.
“In this life, it’s not possible to predict the future. But his career appears really, very well.”
