Medvedev through to Australian Open quarterfinals

The world number 2 in tennis, the Russian Daniil Medvedev qualified for the quarterfinals of the Australian Open after defeating the American Maxime Cressy (70th) 6-2, 7-6 (7/4), 6-7 on Monday (4/7), 7-5, in the stifling heat.

“After losing the first set, I managed to distance myself quickly. The match was very tough, hell!” said the Russian, after 3h30 of play.

Medvedev had a minor problem with his upper right leg during the match, which required treatment on the court, but the player downplayed the matter.

“The match was long, but even if I had pain, taking an analgesic I will be able to play,” said Medvedev, winner of the last US Open, on Wednesday.

In the quarterfinals, he will face the Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime (9th).

Last year, Medvedev was beaten in the Australian Open final by Serbian Novak Djokovic, absent this year.
