Daniil Medvedev explained why he withdrew from the Moscow's Kremlin Cup. The Russian said: "I did not expect to perform so well in Shanghai. I played my sixth final in a row. I am exhausted mentally and physically and I cannot get my best result here.
As a professional athlete, I do not want to go on court if I am not at 100 percent. I wanted to play in Moscow, I played here for four years in a row and every time I improved my result. It's a shame. But it happened this way.
This is a game and I have to do what's the best for my body." Asked if he will play the Vienna tournament, Medvedev replied: "I do not know yet. I cannot promise I will play, but I cannot say I will not be there either.
I will see how I feel in the next days, how I will recover, how I will be doing mentally and physically. I will discuss with my team." Asked if his Davis Cup appearance depends on how far he goes at the ATP Finals in London, Medvedev replied: "I cannot say it's directly connected to London.
If I play six matches there, I may not be able to stay up for a week. I plan to play Davis Cup, I would be happy to do it but no one knows what happens in one month." Medvedev is also supposed to play Paris Masters.
