‘I can cause danger to the biggest names at Wimbledon’, warns Daniil Medvedev

Daniil Medvedev warned he is capable of “going really far” at Wimbledon if he plays his best and said he can “cause a danger to the biggest names”.

The world No. 2 has also spoken of his unorthodox game, saying “I prefer to be one in 100 rather than like the other 99”.

The 25-year-old has found form on grass ahead of Wimbledon at the Mallorca Championships – where he reached the final by beating Pablo Carreno Busta today.

“I like that my game is unorthodox in a way. I guess you could say I prefer to be one in 100 rather than like the other 99,” the Russian said in a press conference.

“On clay even if I’m feeling good I need to adapt my game, I need to adapt my movement. On grass it’s different, I feel that I can play kind of automatically.

“Just the way I play, maybe play flatter than I play, so it’s more convenient for me to play on grass. It takes me time to get used to the grass but now I feel happy with some wins.

“I feel like I’m raising the level. The start against Moutet was a disaster but I started playing better and already confidence is higher.

“Wimbledon is now my worst Slam [in terms of results]. I want to challenge myself to go far but it’s a very tricky surface where first, second you can get tough opponents who don’t give many chances and there are lots of tiebreaks.

“If I play my best tennis I’m capable of going really far, and to cause a danger to the biggest names, I just need to gain confidence and go with the flow.”

Medvedev will face Sam Querrey in the final of the ATP 250 tournament on Saturday.
