Russian tennis player Daniel Medvedev said he would not change his tactics at the next Masters Series tournament in Miami, despite Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz losing in the Indian Wells final.
On Sunday, Medvedev lost to Alcaraz in the Masters final with a score of 3:6, 2:6. Previously, the 27-year-old Russian had won 19 games in a row.
– Of course, if I lose two games in a row, staying on the back line, and they beat me just as easily, I have to change something, but one game is not enough.
I have to wait for the match on faster courts to see if my tactic will work. There was a small gap during the game where I tried to play a little more aggressively and closer to the baseline. But in those one or two games, Alcaraz was throwing the bombs, so that didn’t help me. And it’s not so easy to change something during the game.
I managed to get into my zone, which I didn’t have throughout 2022 where I was less consistent. I played good matches or tournaments, but all of a sudden I had a bad match. For the past four weeks, I have managed to avoid this. I have no idea how I did, but I am very happy and want to continue in the same spirit, – quotes the words of Medvedev, the press service of ATP.
The Miami tournament runs from March 22 to April 2.
