Stefanos Tsitsipas and Daniil Medvedev are not really good friends after a controversy happened in last year's Miami Open. Alexander Zverev was asked if he gets along well with the Moscow native. "Stefanos and Daniil have a weird relationship a little bit.
So I will leave that to them", said Zverev smiling. "I have a very good relationship with Daniil since we're kids, and I'm having a good relationship with Stefanos now since the Laver Cup. So whatever they have, they can leave it for themselves.
I'm not going to get involved. I'm not going to say anything about it. I actually think the opposite. Daniil is somebody that plays a way that we have never seen before. So you can see it both ways. Yeah, maybe he doesn't do huge winners or jumping forehands or anything like that, but he plays a style that we have never seen before.
You know, that is not boring to me. But we have to adjust to it. We play against different players every single day of our lives. Every single player is different. There are no players that play the same way. So he plays very flat.
He plays with shots that you can't really do anything with the ball, I feel like, and that is difficult to play against him in an aggressive way. Sometimes that's maybe why it looks maybe on TV or from the outside that players are not playing as aggressive against him as against others, but I feel like he doesn't let you.
But, I mean, he's playing well. As I said on court, he's probably the best player in the world right now. So credits to him."
