Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios shared his feelings From the victory over the Russian Daniil Medvedev in the second round of the tournament in Montreal.
“I’m not one of those players who look at ratings or anything like that when entering a match. The only thing that matters to me is with whom and with what ball I play. I hope I will continue in the same spirit.”
The match, which lasted two hours, ended with the scores of 7:6 (7:2), 4:6, 2:6.
Currently, Medvedev maintains the lead in the Professional Tennis Players Association (ATP) rating. On July 25, the Russian started its tenth week as world number one, setting a new Russian record in men’s singles. Previously, this record (in 2000 and 2001) was broken by Marat Safin. He was the leader of the ATP rankings for nine weeks.
Medvedev, 26, took first place in the ATP rankings for the first time in early 2022. He then took the lead for three weeks, then handed the first place to 21-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic.
