It turned out that Danio Medvedev was weaker than Hubert Hurkacz in the Wimbledon fourth round match that took place over two days. Tennis players started on Monday and the Russian led 2-1 in sets when the match was interrupted by rain. On Tuesday, after the appeal, the player from Moscow fared much worse, losing two matches and finally surrendering to the pole 6: 2, 6: 7 (2), 6: 3, 3: 6, 3: 6.
During the conference that followed the match, the Russian was very self-critical. – You played really badly. I don’t have much to say about it, he said, citing wimbledon.com.
Medvedev assessed that this was his worst performance since the May tournament in Rome and his defeat to Aslan Karasev. – He certainly played well. But I probably played the two worst sets since the tournament in Rome. When you’re the runner-up, the fourth round is a really bad result.

“I went to court and … I don’t know,” he continued. – He rarely finds reasons to explain why I couldn’t play well, but I couldn’t hit the field with the ball. His job was to put pressure on me and serve me well.

My goal is not to win 21 Grand Slam titles or move up the rankings for 37 weeks, for example. I just want to show my best, work hard and try to win as many matches as possible. If I want to be the leader in the standings, I’ll have to win four more matches here. She failed, but she didn’t even take 1 percent. He said my thoughts.
Medvedev also indicated that he would not think long about failing at Wimbledon. “I’ll almost forget it in a couple of hours, but only because I did my best.” My level was really low, but I did my best. And he concluded his speech: Let’s wait for the next Wimbledon championship.
