Daniil Medvedev shared a private jet with Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios a couple of weeks ago on the way from Washington to Montreal. The Russian player said they did not interact with each other too much. "We are kind of focused on our teams.
I was talking to my coach, and Nick was talking to his friend or somebody. I don't know if it's his coach. Stefanos was staying with his family, so it was just a nice chat. I mean, it's nice from the tournament to do it, because that's why we arrived fresh in Montreal.
That's why I could show some great tennis there", said Medvedev. On his opening-round win over Kyle Edmund in the first round, Medvedev added: "It was a bit tough today, but I played great tennis still. I could have won a little bit easier maybe, but Kyle stepped it up in the second set, was serving for the set finally, I think.
I'm happy to get through in the two sets, and usually this first round they help you get into the tournament, and hopefully tomorrow I'm going to be even better." Asked if he is playing his best tennis ever, Medvedev concluded: "Maybe.
I cannot say that, like, yes, it's definitely the best tennis I have had in my whole career, because already starting last year at the end of the year I had some great tournaments and matches. But what I'm doing is definitely really consistent, and I'm totally happy about it."
