(CNN)Daniil Medvedev produced a brilliant display to beat world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in straight sets, 6-3 6-3, at the ATP Finals on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old made beating the 17-time grand slam champion look comfortable as he progressed into the semifinals of the tournament.

Medvedev has now won three of his last four meetings against Djokovic, who can still qualify for the knockout stages if he beats Alexander Zverev in his next match.

"I like to play Novak (Djokovic), first of all because he is one of the greatest champions in history," Medvedev said after the match.

Djokovic had dictated the early exchanges but it was Medvedev who broke first in the opening set after a mammoth game of over 11 minutes.

It proved to be the turning point in the match with the Russian going on to win seven consecutive games.

It is still tough to beat them, even on their bad days so I am really happy about the win.

It's a very different story from last year, when Medvedev failed to win any of his group stage matches at the season-ending spectacle.

The 2018 champion now faces Djokovic in his final round-robin match on Friday, with the winner progressing to the next round.

"That's probably the most difficult match-up I could have, playing Novak," Zverev said after his victory.
