World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev didn't want to comment too much on the latest reports from Great Britain that suggest he might be banned from competing at Wimbledon. British Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston indicated that Russian players would have to denounce Russian president Vladimir Putin before they are given the green light to play Wimbledon.
"Look, I try to take it tournament by tournament. I mean, there are always, you know, different rules, regulations in order to play or not to play. You know, right now I'm here in Miami. I can play and I'm happy to play tennis.
That's, you know, the sport I love. I want to promote the sport all over the world. We'll have tough moments and good moments," Medvedev said, per Sportskeeda. "That's, to be honest, all I have to say, you know.
That's going to be the same with every tournament. So the next one after this one is Monte-Carlo, you know, where this moment I'm a resident there, so I love this tournament also. I can play it normally and I'm happy to play it.
Don't have any response to Wimbledon."
Medvedev aims to reclaim the No. 1 spot in Miami
Medvedev officially became the No. 1 for the first time in his career on February 28. This Monday, Novak Djokovic returned to the top spot.
Djokovic isn't playing at the Miami Masters and Medvedev has a chance to reclaim the top spot from the Serb. "Yeah, it's not something that stays in my mind nonstop, like I'm not going to bed saying, How could I lost it, how can I get it back? But I know the mathematics, read them all over the place a little bit, and it's kind of the same like in Indian Wells," Medvedev said. Medvedev needs to reach at least the Miami semifinal in order to get back to the No. 1 spot.
