Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev suffered greatly from the heat and high humidity in New York on Wednesday. After a few days, the evening conditions on Arthur Ashe Stadium, which are dramatically affecting the US Open 2023, have not improved at all.

A physical battle that spared no one, not even the people in the stands, and caused considerable difficulties. Both tennis players had to visit a doctor at one point in the match due to breathing difficulties and were barely able to catch their breath after the long exchanges.

The problem is not only related to the heat, but to the lethal combination with the very high humidity. On one of the occasions Daniil went to get the towel, he saw that the camera was filming him from very close up and decided to make a tough statement: "One day a tennis player will die here and you will see him," is the dramatic alarm raised by the native of Moscow.

Medvedev did not spare himself even at the press conference: "Brutal conditions for both. We were sweating a lot and had to use a lot of towels. I no longer have skin on my nose and my face is red, but it's not from the sun.

I just saw Andrey in the dressing room and he was red in the face too. That says it all. How far can we go? We could play five sets, have some difficulties the next day and then be fine. Or, we have a tennis player like Yibing Wu who passed out in Washington, possibly due to the heat." Medvedev then added: "I don't know what we can do.

We probably can't stop the tournament for four days. would make many tennis players happy. I don't want something to happen and then hear, Oh, Daniil said that a couple of years ago. I don't have a solution, but it needs to be talked about before anything happens.

I feel pretty good now. I'm just pretty exhausted. It wasn't easy. I couldn't see things clearly, my vision was blurry. I was shaking and wished I could sit for hours in the locker room. I plunged into the ice, changed and went to eat.

I started sweating despite the air conditioning and told my team to get me some food right away. After I ate, I started feeling better." Here is the incredible video released on Twitter, which immediately went around the web.
