Daniil Medvedev: I want to compete at Wimbledon, make a great result


Daniil Medvedev has told Eurosport that he would absolutely love to return to Wimbledon and hopefully make a strong run at The Championships in 2023. 

Last year, Medvedev and his fellow compatriots were banned from competing at Wimbledon and all other British grass court events. 

Medvedev, 27, finds grass to be a very tricky surface but he has had some success on the surface. 

In 2021, Medvedev won his first grass title in Mallorca. 

Last year, Medvedev ended as runner-up in ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Halle. 

Medvedev: I want to compete at Wimbledon this year 

“I like grass but it’s a very tough surface, it’s a little bit tougher than hard courts, and that’s where I think Novak is amazing winning so many grass-court tournaments. Because you can really just get a guy who is going to serve good this day and you have to win the tie-breaks. Novak managed to win so many times 6-4 6-4 6-4, I actually don’t know how he does it. So that’s where grass is a little bit tough for me, like for example, I lost to [Tim] Van Rijthoven in the [s-Hertogenbosch] final last year and before the final I was feeling great, playing great, and he was having a good day, hitting bombs, after the match, I was like, ‘okay, one hour, he just hit winners all over the place and I lost’. This on hard courts is a little bit less probable to happen. But I want to play on grass, I want to play Wimbledon. I don’t know what their decision is going to be. I’m just going to wait for it and hopefully, I can play Wimbledon this year and show some great results,” Medvedev told Eurosport.

The Wimbledon organizers have yet to announce their decision regarding the participation of Russian and Belarusian players. 

In recent times, the ATP and WTA have made it very clear to the Wimbledon organizers that they don’t want the same situation at the tournament this year. 

According to some of the recent reports from Great Britain, the Wimbledon organizers are under the pressure to change their stance and allow Russian and Belarusian players to play.
