Karen Khachanov denied that all the tennis players book business class tickets to travel around the world playing tournaments. The Russian player said: "It may be wrong. Not everyone can afford a business class. I started business class fights for long trips maybe only three years ago.
But not everyone does it." Khachanov and his wife Veronika will soon become parents. "I do not hide it, we planned it. So when i learned it, I was very happy. We figured out the child's gender by an exam in the United States.
The child will probably be named Davin." Meanwhile the former world No. 1 Yevgeny Kafelnikov commented on Daniil Medvedev's fatigue: "The guy is 23 years old. Why should you speak of tiredness. Your body at that age works well.
It doesn't take two or three days to recover like it happens with veterans. The mental tiredness is possible because playing for three weeks at such a high level is very tough. But not physical. Also, two matches in this tournament were not that tiring for Daniil."
Russia's tennis federation chief Shamil Tarpischev commented on Medvedev making fun of the crowd after his win over Feliciano Lopez: "I have to admit that the opponent was extremely uncomfortable for Medvedev: a lefty who hits big slices.
Daniil is also tired after the last tournaments in the United States. But he still managed to win a very tough match. It would be better if those things would not happen on such a big stage."
