Daniil Medvedev On Confrontation With Heckler: I Asked What Was The Problem

I asked what the problem was

World No. 1 Daniil Medvedev said he confronted his interlocutor from Montral only to ask him why he felt the need to insult him.

At the National Bank Open in Montreal, Medvedev suffered a second round loss to Nick Kyrgios. As Medvedev was leaving the tennis complex, someone decided to send the «loser» chants to Medvedev.

Medvedev turned and faced his interlocutor. Medvedev was surrounded by security personnel and was not physical or anything like that; it was clear that he had confronted the heckler just to ask him why he was yelling those words.

Medvedev: I will raise my children differently

‘It doesn’t matter, after the game, during the tournament, on the street or at home, if someone laughs at me, I answer. I went over and asked, ‘What’s the problem? Why do you say that? Do not do that.

The surrounding people asked him to apologize. But it doesn’t matter. I won’t let anyone yell ugly things at me, I won’t shut up and I won’t walk past. His father annoyed me more. When I approached his son, he also started saying mean things to me.

I will raise my children differently. Raise the child and don’t say unpleasant things to me. Overall, this was one of the first cases where I came across this in real life. But the more famous you become, the greater the probability of such incidents.»

Meanwhile, Medvedev looks to bounce back this week at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnai.

As was the case in Montreal, Medvedev is again the top seed and has a first round bye. In the second round, Medvedev plays Botic van de Zandschulp, who defeated Maxime Cressy in the first round. Medvedev owns a 2-0 head-to-head against van de Zandschulp, having beaten the Dutch at the 2021 US Open and this year’s Australian Open, respectively.
