Justine Henin: "Here's what Daniil Medvedev needs to improve"

This is a period that is anything but easy to manage for Daniil Medvedev, who has to live with the many and high expectations placed in him in this 2022 season in all the major tournaments scheduled. Former world number one Justine Henin, winner of nine Grand Slam titles, gave some of her thoughts on the Russian tennis player: "She has already shown that she can withstand a lot of pressure.

I think he will have to keep working to manage his emotions, because I think he leaves a lot of energy in these moments," explained the Belgian. A similar episode happened in Melbourne, in which the athlete from Moscow was unable to close the dispute.

with the native of Manacor, despite having all the inertia on his side and two sets of advantage.

Henin's comment is an interesting fact

The Olympic gold medalist at the Athens Olympics in 2004 also added: "He will always have an explosive temperament, but if she wants to make her mark on the circuit she will have to manage her emotions better than him."

An aspect, the one underlined by the former player, which will certainly be monitored this year by all professionals and enthusiasts, especially to understand the overall value of the new number one in the ranking. Medvedev boasts up to now some not so prolific data on Indian Wells, Master 1000 in which he will be busy in these days until next week (if he obviously has to overcome the various shifts).

In fact, in the last nine games played in California, the Russian has a balance of five wins and four defeats. In 26 fast-paced events in which he participated, the boy from Moscow reached the quarterfinals on 24 occasions (going over 20 semifinals, 16 finals and 12 triumphs): two events in which he has never convinced and brought home a satisfactory result , or rather Dubai and Indian Wells. In 2022 he will therefore seek redemption to improve this negative figure as well.
