Medvedev blasted out the gates to take a commanding lead in the third set, reaching match point with Nadal serving down, 5-1, 40-30. Nadal said. "Is [this] a serious question or it's a joke?"

"In that moment (facing match point), what you think is probably in five minutes you are in the locker room, because that's the more normal thing. In that moment, you play with not much pressure because you are nearly lost".

In a rematch of their marathon US Open final of September, which Nadal won in five, the Spaniard looked on the brink of elimination as Medvedev broke his serve twice at the start of the third set.

The Greek was able to secure the first break of the match to take the opening set 6-3 against his rival.

"Knowing that I would not be at my 100% in terms of feelings, in terms of movement, in terms of confidence or hitting the ball, I needed my best competitive spirit this afternoon, and I was not there in that way", Nadal said.

Zverev can also qualify if he loses in three sets to Medvedev but Tsitsipas beats Nadal.

This marks the first time in his career that Nadal was victorious in the ATP Finals.

Nadal admitted the win was 1-in-1000.

But he insisted he feels fine physically, and is gradually finding his best game after an error-filled performance against Zverev. "It's a big surprise for me you ask me this after I have been with the same girl for 15 years and having a very stable and normal life". "Then to win this match isa combination of a lot of things: luck, some mistakes of Daniil, some good moments by myself at the end".
