Daniil Medvedev on the possible reaction of the Wimbledon crowd against Russians

The early stages of the Roland Garros were characterized by the repeated controversy of the Ukrainian players against Russian and Belarusian. Aryna Sabalenka, who was unable to shake hands with Marta Kostyuk, once again expressed her opinion on the matter.

Kostyuk, for her part, attacked her latest opponent and spoke of the ban canceled by the Wimbledon organizers, who took a step back from last season.

Daniil Medvedev: "We can't control the reactions of others"

Daniil Medvedev was questioned on the issue at a press conference after his elimination on his debut in Paris.

He explained: "About the war situation, I've said it many, many times: no one in this world, including Russian or Belarusian athletes, supports the war. No one. How can we support the war? If our words could stop the war , we would.

But unfortunately it is not in our hands. My message is to bring joy to people by showing my best tennis. We can't control people's reactions. If people decide to be hard on us, we have to accept it. It would be great if they were nice.

Wimbledon? It's not up to us to decide. I will be happy if I get the chance to play in London. I just want to play the tournament. It's not easy to play on grass. I can't say I love this surface, but my relationship is certainly better than on clay.

I will try to do better this year at Wimbledon." On the loss to Thiago Seyboth Wild added: "I tried, I don't think I played badly. You think you did what I had to, he played really well. Everything in Rome was incredible, I never thought I'd win a tournament on clay. Let's talk about a Masters 1000. Next year I'll probably be more motivated."
