Daniil Medvedev, the Russian who struggles speaking his language!

Daniil Medvedev does not see himself as a TV commentator in ten or 15 years once his career days are over. The Moscow native is not able to speak his language very well as he does not live in Russia. The world No. 4 said: "I first have to read more books.

Because, unfortunately, I live in Monaco, I must be honest. So, my wife is usually the only person I get a chance to speak Russian with. Sometimes I speak grammatically incorrect during interviews, what I am a bit ashamed of sometimes.

I hope I will be able in 10-15 years to comment. I think I understand a lot about tennis. To be honest, 3 or 4 days ago my main coach recorded me an audio-message. We always talk about upcoming matches and past matches. So, he tells me that he is insanely laughing at my audio-messages because he clearly sees me in 10 years as a commentator due to how I speak.

He sees me describing and explaining everything that is happening on the court. On his schedule, he added: To be honest, I don’t know how many tournaments I played this year. Anyway, I take good of my body. For example, the decision to come to St.

Petersburg and play wouldn’t have been made if I were not physically fit. But my team and I decided that I am ready. But, to be honest, the hip I hurt during the match against Wawrinka, hurt a bit during the tournament.

The day after tomorrow I will come back to France, talk to doctors and we will decide how to organize the rest of the calendar for this season."
