“It’s always tough to answer,” Medvedev said of his expectations. “Good Australian Open is to win it. But if you ask me what I’m going to be happy about, it always depends of course who you play, who you lose to.
“But I would say I will be happy with quarters. As I always say, for me the first goal is to win it step by step.
“If I’m in the quarters, I’m not going to be there and say, ‘Okay, I’ve done my goal, it’s enough for this tournament’.
“Any tournament I play, I want to win it. But quarters will be satisfying, I would say.”
