“I know that I can play good on grass,” Medvedev said. “Unfortunately we don’t have that many tournaments, only one ATP 500 and one Grand Slam. It’s going to be a special feeling (if I) win my first title on grass.
“Adding titles, especially on different surfaces, can help your confidence and It’s just a great thing for your career.”
