“I’m Not Taking Tsitsipas Seriously Anymore”: Daniil Medvedev

Next-generation star, Daniil Medvedev says that he does not take Stefanos Tsitsipas seriously anymore after his comments about the Laver Cup 2019 celebrations. Medvedev also revealed that he is not friends with Tsitsipas.

US Open runner-up, Daniil Medvedev and world No.7 Stefanos Tsitsipas does not have a good relationship since last year’s Miami Open. Medvedev defeated the 21-year-old 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 when things turn into a quarrel between the two following the post-match handshake.

Medvedev said it’s better for the Greek teen “to shut the fuck up” as he was not happy with Tsitsipas’ behavior during the match, which also included a bathroom break.

Their relationship took turn for the worse at the Shanghai Rolex Masters 2019 last week when Tsitsipas was annoyed after his straight-sets defeat against the eventual champion Daniil Medvedev in the semifinals as the Greek called Medvedev’s game ‘boring’.

Reacting to Tsitsipas’ Daniil Medvedev said in an interview on Tuesday: “Every player can tell some digs about another. But I’m not taking Tsitsipas seriously anymore. Especially after his words about the Laver Cup celebration. He said ‘they forced him to drink alcohol. It’s OK. But he also said: Mom, it was disgustingly. I can show the video’.”

Daniil Medvedev also revealed that he and Tsitsipas are not friends. “He said my game is boring? For real? Well, I’m not going to argue with him. Everybody has their own style. If someone thinks it’s boring – it’s okay, not a big deal. We are definitely not friends, nor are we enemies. We are colleagues, that’s it,” Medvedev added.

Daniil Medvedev has withdrawn from his home tournament, the Moscow River Cup 2019 as he is tired after playing some intense tennis in the past 11 weeks, reaching six straight finals including the US Open 2019 and claiming two Masters 1000 title. He is now scheduled to compete at the Rolex Paris Masters 2019, later this month.
