Medvedev has conned us all

All this talk about how he can’t play on clay, I hate this surface etc.. meanwhile hes quietly destroying everyone in his half pretty easily. He just beat Garin, a known clay court specialist 62 61 75. He for sure was using his elite level mind games before the tournament to make us all believe he was a Grade A bum on the surface, hiding the fact that he’s actually really good on clay. I mean, how can a baseline grinder not be good on the dirt?



Or the more logical explanation is that he’s the second best player in the world so him going far in any tournament isn’t a surprise.

Reminiscent of Jim Courier in 1992 in Australia. After his thrashing by Edberg in USO 1991 everyone said he would go out early.

No, a month ago he said he doesn't love clay but added that the more he plays on it as the month goes by, the better he becomes on it, and he added that he does believe he can be a force to be reckoned with on the surface (tennis head website, May 3, 2021)

He also said after playing his first match in RG he felt it was playing like a HC, similar to Australia.
