For one thing, Daniil Medvedev says, clay gets you all dirty. And there are always bad bounces.
So, long story short, there isn’t anything he likes about playing on clay.
That, and other topics, were addressed during the World No. 2’s pre-tournament Zoom conference in Monte Carlo.
Here’s what it looked like.
Medvedev was also surprised about the one-week postponement of Roland Garros.
He’s not blaming the French government or the tournament, but feels the “general situation” is a bit ridiculous.
For himself, he doesn’t mind it, as it will give him an extra week to prepare for a tournament at which he has never done well.
But for others – for example, someone who makes the quarters in Paris (he was not including himself in that potential category), it will be a tough turnaround to the grass because they might not even be able to play a tuneup event.
