Daniil Medvedev met the press today at the Monte Carlo Masters which just got underway.
The second-seeded Medvedev couldn’t understand why the French Open moved just one week back. And his reasoning makes sense.
“I must say it’s a bit ridiculous. But not on the part of the French Federation or the government, it’s just the general situation. When you look at that way, it gives you the feeling that if you postpone by one week, the COVID will disappear in one week.”
Medvedev added that the extra week will serve him well, but it could impact the grass preparations.
“As a player anyway, I prefer that because it will give me an extra week to prepare. I’m going to try to use the two weeks after Rome to really prepare well and have a good trip there. We’ll see what they’re going to do for the grass court season.
“I’m not talking about me, but a player who is going to the quarterfinals in the French Open will be in a bad situation for the grass court season. In that case he will only be able to play Wimbledon. It’s never easy to play only one tournament in the grass court season.”
Medvedev never had to play when the pre-Wimbledon grass season was just two weeks!
