Daniil Medvedev in the semifinals of Indian Wells: Anybody can beat you any moment

Daniil Medvedev secured the semifinals of Indian Wells after a great victory against Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. What worried many is that the Russian rolled his ankle in the round of 16 against Zverev. However, it doesn't seem to be causing him any problems now.

A bleeding cut on his thumb and medical time out by Medvedev caused concern among his fans. "I absolutely cut it open," Medvedev said, as quoted by eurosport.com
"It was like fully open. I never cut myself with a knife even like this because I don't cook much.

They cleaned it now, have a small tape. Should be fine.
The question is going to be whether I tape it in two days for the match or not. But that’s not a big problem because I managed to play well with the tape today. A lot of players tape their fingers and manage to play well so I’m going to be able to do it also”.

Daniil is happy with his form this year, but he is also aware that there are many dangerous opponents at this moment. “It’s very tough to have these streaks in tennis,”- he said.
“You always have an opponent on the other side who wants to beat you.

Everyone wants to be in the semis of Masters, finals, winning the tournament. So it’s tough because anybody can beat you any moment.
When you manage to win that many matches in a row, it’s just a pleasant feeling.

Three titles. But right now, my mind is definitely 100% here in Indian Wells. I want to try to get these last two matches." Frances Tiafoe could be a big challenge, which the Russian himself is aware of. However, he is the favorite in this match and is expected to reach the final.

“The further you go, the tougher it is, the more confident your opponents are because if you play the semis or final, it means that you are feeling good, either with the courts or conditions, they earn your confidence, which is more the second one for me.

But it’s the same for the other three players. I’m sure Frances is feeling great right now and playing great, and it’s going to be the same for the guys who win tomorrow. But I feel great, and hopefully, I can continue this way this season because it’s been a long time, I haven't felt this way”.
