Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev said that he could withdraw from the VTB Kremlin Cup.
– I need to decide in the next two days what I will do, because I signed a contract with a tournament in Moscow, and he will be next week. I agreed to play there because I haven't played there since 2018. This is my hometown, so I wanted to give myself at least a chance to play there. I even have to participate in the draw.
The deadline for making a decision is Friday. But to be honest, I really felt exhausted at the Indian Wells tournament, which, of course, I will never say before the match. Now I can say it.
I was very tired and during the tournament several things arose concerning my physical condition. So, in the next few days after this tough match, I will see if I can play in Moscow. I really want to do this, but I need to take care of my health. But in any case, I'm going to go there, I just need a little time to understand before the deadline whether I will play there or not, ”Medvedev said.
Earlier, the Russian was eliminated from the Masters' draw in Indian Wells, losing in the 1/8 finals to the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov.
VTB Kremlin Cup will take place from 16 to 24 October.
