Daniil Medvedev speaks about his money, reveals hilarious things

Daniil Medvedev became an ambassador of Bovet, BMW and Tinkoff over the last few months. In an interview with RT, the world No. 4, who earned around $5 million prize money tournaments during the North American hard-court swing, in St.

Petersburg and Shanghai, spoke about his relationship with money. "It has not changed. I always wanted to have success and money comes with success: there are no successful people in their jobs that earn less having success.

My attitude towards money is pretty simple and based on a combination of things: how much I like one thing, how much it costs and how useful it is. I like cars but I will not buy a Bugatti for $3 million now. But this year in Australia many people were shocked.

I was already the world No. 16 and I could afford something big, but I travelled in the economy. I remember I saw that the economy was around €1,000 and 1,200 worth and business, €4,500. That's not a big difference, it's a good price but I sit and thought, Are 3,500 worth for a 20-hour air flight? For someone yes, because their legs hurt.

But I am doing well even if I am tall. I already said it once, when I went to Philipp Plein two years ago at Wimbledon - I cannot explain why it's not even my favorite brand - I spent £10,000. That was really silly but at that moment I wanted to do it and I do not regret it."

Medvedev is committed to playing the Paris Masters later this month after withdrawing from Vienna and Moscow tournaments.
