Daniil Medvedev explains his frustration after leaving the Paris Masters

World No. 4 Daniil Medvedev admitted that Alex de Minaur had a good performance while failing to take advantage of opportunities. Medvedev, who was fourth seed in the main draw in Paris, faced De Minaur after a bye in the first round.

In the second round in Paris, de Minaur surprised Medvedev 6-4, 2-6, 7-5. After easily winning the second set, Medvedev also started the third set with a break, but was unable to capitalize when de Minaur claimed a surprise victory. “De Minaur played very well.

He didn’t miss much. He made the right choice many times. I had my chances, I didn’t use them. So credit to him,” Medvedev said, per Tennis Majors.

Medvedev on breaking his racket

After De Minaur converted his match, Medvedev broke his racket in frustration and appeared to exchange a few words with the crowd.

Medvedev later explained that he didn’t feel chair umpire Nacho Forcadell did a good job. “I wasn’t talking to the referee about the crowd. In my opinion, the crowd was nice, supporting both players, 50/50, always nice.

In my opinion, the referee didn’t have a good game, but I’m not criticizing. It’s like, he played a bad game like I can play a bad game, for example. In the end, my attitude wasn’t good enough. I can admit. But in my opinion, he didn’t play well.

I like Nacho and I like him as a referee. I’m just talking about today,” Medvedev explained.

Now that his run in Paris is over, Medvedev has just one more tournament on his schedule – the ATP Finals.

“There’s still a very important tournament (ATP Finals), I’m happy to play it. That’s tennis. Two people, only one can win. I’ll try to do better in Slams next year, I think, but I’m happy, “said Medvedev .
