Rafael Nadal offers top praise to his victim today Daniil Medvedev:
I want to congratulate Daniil. It’s been a great year for you.
Many congratulations on all your improvements. You are already in your best place in the rankings, fighting for the best events and that because you are doing a lot of things well.
I wish you all the very best for the future. You have all your career in front [of you]. All the very best to you and your team. Well done.
Our champ also paid an emotional tribute to his team:
Many thanks to all my team here, Tomeu [Salva], Francis [Roig], Rafael [Maymo] for great support.
It has been a great week and without the support of them and all of the people at home, family, the rest of team, things would be impossible for me especially after a lot of injuries that I had in my career. The support of all of them has been the key to keep going.
So many thanks for supporting in the good and the low moments.
I thought it was your best match since RG! You played so well, and you were also very kind to your opponent afterwards. The sport of tennis should be honored to have such a wonderful person and player both!
All the best for the US Open. You seem to be very ready!
A loyal fan.
