World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev is an avid Bayern Munchen fan and Robert Lewandowski is his favorite player from the team. Moreover, Medvedev has been taking notes from Lewandowski and trying to do some of the stuff he does to keep his body in perfect shape.

"It is too obvious but I have to say Lewandowski," Medvedev told SPOX. "I just love how he works on his game and on his fitness. I admire that. Also his mental approach. Back in the time you could only follow the players on the pitch, now we have the chance to follow them on Instagram and see what they do.

I have so much respect for Lewandowski and what he does with his body. I try to have the same approach in tennis. What you do outside of the court plays a huge role for your success on the court. Cristiano Ronaldo and how he has been working on his game is another perfect example for that.

And let us be honest, I do not know what Bayern is doing or what is going on in Munich, but if a player comes to Bayern, one year later he looks like a bodybuilder, it is crazy how they work on the fitness aspect. It is really impressive to see."

Medvedev happy about the rise of Joshua Kimmich

A few days ago, Kimmich signed an extension with Bayern and Medvedev insists the defensive midfield deserved it since he has turned into a "fantastic player." "It's funny.

The first thing that comes to my mind is that I watched the Supercup back when Pep Guardiola was the coach and I had no idea who this Kimmich guy was. I was very surprised," Medvedev admitted. "What a fantastic player he has become.

What an amazing character. Kimmich is the kind of player you absolutely need to win matches and titles. He is maybe not the guy who scores this sensational goal from 30 metres under the crossbar, although he can score goals, but he is so important for the success of Bayern.

When he is not on the pitch the probability of winning goes down straight away. The energy he brings is amazing, he is a difference maker."
