Daniil Medvedev (2nd) spoke with ESPNTenis.com in the run-up to his debut at the ATP 250 of Mallorca, tournament played on grass in the run-up to Wimbledon, about its relationship to the surface and its preparation.
“The grass season is not easy this year, especially after they moved Roland Garros for a week. For example in Halle I went and had three days of practice, which is not enough to feel good” expressed the Russian to ESPNTenis.com.
Medvedev, prior to his Halle encounter with Struff, had not played on the surface since Wimbledon 2019, when he reached the third round of the tournament. “I need to get a bit of confidence in my game on the surface because I didn’t play in the last two years and two years ago I was not the same player that I am now.” The Russian said in a press conference in the preview of his debut in Mallorca.
