Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev explained his withdrawal from the VTB Kremlin Cup tournament.
– Unfortunately, this year I will not be able to compete at the VTB Kremlin Cup. The tournament in Moscow is a special opportunity to play at home with Russian fans. I entered the tournament and hoped to play it, but due to such a busy schedule of tournaments in 2021, I felt that I was not ready to physically play 100%.
This decision was hard for me, but I had to make it in order to finish the season with good results. See you soon! – wrote Medvedev on his Twitter account.
“VTB Kremlin Cup” will be held from 16 to 24 October in Moscow.
This season, Medvedev played 61 matches, winning 50 wins and 11 defeats. Note that in September, the Russian won the US Open.
