Daniil Medvedev recently proceeded to the quarter-finals of the China Open, defeating Alex de Minaur 7-6, 6-3 in Beijing. He will now face the winner of the match between Ugo Humbert and Andy Rublev in the next match.
The Russian’s match against Alex de Minaur caught the attention of useless trolls on social media who criticised Daniil Medvedev on one incident in the match, where he hit a hard volley directly at Alex. The troll said, “Hard volley to the body, completely unnecessary, this guy needs some class and to grow up also.” The troll got a witty reply from the Russian, who in turn asked the troll, “You really have some problems, right?”
Daniil Medvedev played an awkward and challenging first set against Alex de Minaur. The Russian was leading 5-2 in the opening set but failed to hold his serve as Alex was making an incredible comeback. Medvedev somehow managed to win the first set and in the next set, he found his rhythm and defeated the Australian 6-3 in a comfortable manner.
Daniil Medvedev is quite a quirky fellow on and off the tennis court. He never manages to leave the crowd unentertained. Even his social media handle is proof of this. He replied to this troll in a funny and witty manner. He is playing at the China Open after losing to Novak Djokovic in the US Open finals.
