“It will be a good test and we will have a lot of fun. He is an amazing player. He is unconventional, a beast,” the Australian said of the confrontation with Medvedev, who also won his first title this season in the Mexican championship. Los Cabos Tournament.

“I want to evaluate my performance, so I will do my best.”
