Daniil Medvedev: Wife Daria plays major role in my career

World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev has admitted that his wife Daria helps him a lot and added that having a stable and good life off the court helps him perform well on the court. On Sunday, Medvedev fell short of defending his Paris Masters as world No.

1 Novak Djokovic beat the Russian 4-6 6-3 6-3. "Yeah, she helps me a lot. I think when we talk about the family, it's all about the culture. So many countries I feel it's about the country. Some countries' wives or family doesn't travel with players, with tennis players; some do," Medvedev explained after the Paris final loss.

"In Russia and Serbia actually I feel like it's quite a common thing, especially until you have babies where it maybe gets different, that wife supports a man and travels with him if she needs to all over the world."

Daria always there for Medvedev

"That's the case with my wife. I feel she supports me. She knows I support her in many ways. So we enjoy being with each other, we enjoy living with each other, we love each other, and that helps me on the tennis court.

It's as easy as that. She will not teach me to play forehand or backhand but she's going to give me some mental strength and mental stability to be a better tennis player," Medvedev contiinued. Also, Medvedev claimed that instead of saying what he wants to achieve, he simply goes and leaves it all out there.

"I'm not afraid. I always say I will try my best. I don't like to talk about myself like, yes, my goal is to win 21 Grand Slams, 38 Masters, and to be No. 1 for 352 weeks or whatever. I like to do my best. That's what I have done this week.

That's what I will try to do in Turin, Davis Cup, every tournament I play. Like this, at the end of my career I can also see, okay, what has Daniil Medvedev achieved? Just going to enjoy it," Medvedev said.
