During a recent interview, Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev talked about his lifestyle and what he likes to do outside the playing court. The Russian champion is having a magical moment and has won three tournaments in the last three weeks.
A 13 game winning streak has been going on since Valentine's Day and Daniil has captured several prestigious victories. The most important undoubtedly came last Friday with Medvedev winning the semifinal by beating world number one Novak Djokovic, defeated with the result of 6-4 6-4.
In the post match Medvedev said: "I eat sweets and sometimes I go to bed late to play PlayStation with my friends. Then in the weekend I like to stay for a drink with my friends." Daniil appeared radiant after winning the semifinal with Nole and then literally dominated the final against his compatriot and friend Andrey Rublev, defeated with the clear result of 6-2;6-2.
Medvedev would come back to the top
When playing on hard courts Medvedev is one of the most interesting tennis players on the Tour and to tell the truth he is perhaps always the favorite or just behind the world number one Novak Djokovic.
Just remember that the Russian inflicted one of the worst defeats in the recent history of the Balkan champion, in the final of the 2021 Us Open. A historyless match with Djokovic who could have won the Golden Grand Slam and the Russian who instead conquered his first career Slam by triumphing in three straight sets.
The tennis player is now back from three consecutive victories in ATP tournaments but has no intention of stopping and starts as a great favorite also on American hard courts. Daniil confirmed: "I had never won three consecutive tournaments in my career and it shows how fantastic this sport is.
After the loss to Korda I felt dejected but now things have changed. Obviously I specify that, as I say this, if I lose at Indian Wells this state of great confidence of mine will definitely disappear. Right now I feel incredible and I want to take advantage of it to win as many matches and tournaments as possible."
