“But I’m not going to stand here and hand it over to them. I’m going to make them work their arse off for that.”
Speaking of his upcoming opponent, Djokovic added: “Daniil Medvedev, as I said previously, is the player to beat.
“He’s on a big winning streak. He ended out the season best possible fashion. I mean, winning quite comfortably, actually, against top players, against myself in straight sets in London, and he just has improved a lot. I mean, he has a big serve. For a tall guy, he moves extremely well.
“Forehand maybe was his weaker shot, but he has improved that, as well. Backhand is as good as it gets. He’s so solid.
