“It is obvious that for Alcaraz the match against Medvedev was more important than for Daniil” – Selivanenko

For the Spanish tennis player Carlos Alcaraz, the last match of the group stage of the ATP final tournament against Daniel Medvedev It was more fundamental than for a Russian, Alexei Selivanenko, vice-president of the Russian Tennis Federation (RFF), told .

On Friday, Medvedev, who qualified early for the playoffs of the tournament, lost to Alcaraz with a score of 4:6, 4:6. The Russian will compete with the Italian Jannik Sinner to reach the final, the Spaniard will meet the Serbian Novak Djokovic.

— We cannot say whether the match against Alcaraz was important or not. It is clear that this match did not determine Daniil’s exit from the group. On the other hand, each match has its own meaning: the same points and the same prizes. For Carlos, he obviously had more principles. That’s why he played better and won.

— Does Medvedev benefit from the fact that he will face Sinner in the semi-final and not Djokovic?

“I think this divination is absolutely useless.” The adversary is the one who exists. These guesses about who is better to play are not a very rewarding thing. Fortune telling is aimed more at people who chat and the media who are looking for topics for discussion. Not for athletes,” Selivanenko told .

The semi-finals of the ATP Finals tournament will take place on Saturday, the final will take place on Sunday.
