'Earlier in the tournament I said something in a bad way but it's because of your energy (the crowd) I'm here in the final. Tonight will stay in mind, it was electric. I am a human being I can make mistakes.' said Medvedev.

On winning the game, Nadal said: 'It was an amazing final, I had the match more or less under control. Daniil had a great summer and tonight everyone saw why he is the No 4 player in the world already.

'The way he was able to fight and change the rhythm of the match was fantastic. It is one of the most emotional nights in my tennis career. 
'This victory means a lot, especially the way match became so difficult, the nerves were so high after having the match under control, it was a crazy match.' 

With Nadal's 19 Grand Slam titles to his name he is just one behind his long-standing rival and Swiss legend, Roger Federer.
