Daniil Medvedev reignites Stefanos Tsitsipas feud with shady comments
Daniil Medvedev appeared to make a dig at Stefanos Tsitsipas after winning the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships. The world No 7 and the Greek star have been feuding since their fiery Miami clash in 2018 and Medvedev reignited the beef as he slammed Tsitsipas’ recent comments about Andrey Rublev, defending his countryman and backing him to beat Tsitsipas “many, many times”.
Medvedev defeated good friend and countryman Rublev 6-2 6-2 to lift his third title in three weeks at the Dubai Championships. Both men were in good spirits after the match, as the 25-year-old paid tribute to his conqeuror before Medvedev returned the kind words.
And the world No 7 used his victory speech to take aim at Tsitsipas for a comment the world No 3 made about Rublev during the 2022 ATP Finals, where he claimed the 25-year-old “prevailed with the few tools that he has” after losing their round-robin match which determined who advanced to the semi-final. “First of all I would like to congratylate Andrey on great week, as he said the second round was not easy for him and he managed to make it to the final,” Medvedev started, before addressing Tsitsipas’ remark.
“I don’t think I could be that deep as he was here with the mic,” he said, referencing Rublev’s kind words towards him in his own speech. “But I just wanna say that I remember not long ago one player said that he has just a few weapons and I was reading this interview, I was like ‘How can you say this?’”
