Daniil Medvedev has fired a warning to his competitors at the National Bank Open in Toronto this week, remarking that he expects to be in the final. Medvedev, the world number two, is the top seed for the tournament with Rafael Nadal standing as the second seed leaving the tantalising prospect of a final between the two stars.
Asked about his expectations for the competition, Medvedev responded in typically confident fashion as he looks to get his hard court season underway successfully. The Russian said: “I am the top seed, so anything except the final will not be a good result.
“I want to play good tennis. I know when I play good tennis on hard courts, I am hard to beat.
“I am keen to win. I know I am capable of beating a lot of guys on hard and I know I can win big tournaments.
“At the same time, everybody plays well, everybody can beat everybody. It is unpredictable.”
