Do not overestimate the entry of Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev into the final of the ATP 250 tournament in Los Cabos (Mexico). This was announced to RBC Sport by the President of the Russian Tennis Federation (RTF) Shamil Tarpishchev.
“He should win this final, logically. Functionally it looks good. Plays, judging by the scores, confidently and reliably. But the victory should not be overestimated. She will definitely not let him stay in first place in the ranking. Everything will be decided at the US Open. This result is just an addition to the fact that it would be hard to overtake him. Norrie will be a convenient opponent for Daniel. He is simpler, because he plays predictably, ”Tarpishchev said.
