Facing the microphones, Daniil Medvedev very often says what he thinks without jargon. And his latest release is further proof of this. Opposed this Wednesday evening to his compatriot Andrey Rublev in the quarter-finals of the US Open, the third player in the world took advantage of a passage to his towel, in the middle of the match, to complain about the playing conditions at Flushing Meadows.
While it is very hot and heavy in New York, with particularly high humidity during the day, the Russian, who called the doctor twice during the meeting, sounded the alarm. “A player is going to die and they will see,” he said with the frankness that we know him, sending a direct message to the organizers of the tournament.
Since the start of the fortnight in the United States, many players including Hubert Hurkacz and Dominic Thiem have suffered major physical failures on the court. To the point that rumors have circulated about the circulation of a virus favored by extreme heat. A stifling climate which does not please Daniil Medvedev at all, once again very offensive in his remarks in front of the camera.
