Daniil Medvedev described reaching his first ATP final as a moment which has made him super happy.

"I’m very happy, I can’t describe the feeling. I’m exhausted but super happy. I will approach the final the same as every game, try to play my best and dictate the game” he said, speaking after the match.

The Russian who fought from a match point down, said it was important to show some fight. “I tried to continue fighting, it was tough, but I had to fight for every point and it came off.”

He said that his training has paid off, and played a crucial part in him reaching his first ATP final. ”I was playing well last season but didn’t even reach the final of a Challenger. I feel I have improved in everything, a little bit. My backhand, forehand, serve — everything feels better.”

The crowd which was more supportive of Sela, got a bit on Medvedev's nerve. “Sometimes I hope the crowd is a bit more patient. I had a second serve and was 15-30 down and someone shouted, 'Come on Sela!'. It really pissed me off, but then it’s fantastic to play in front of a crowd that likes its tennis.”
