Medvedev and Tsitsipas: Are they friends?

The relationship between the two got off to a rocky start when they exchanged a few words at the end of their first-ever clash in Miami in 2018.

Since then, the pair have had a respectful relationship when it comes to their tennis. Speaking after his quarter-final win in Cincinnati, Tsitsipas said, “He (Medvedev) is one of the best. For me, I’m going to have to play my game. I have been playing good so far. Of course the obstacle like Daniil is never easy, but I’m going to try and be concentrated and try and approach my game in the most precise, best manner and let my tennis do the talking, and the rest will present itself if it’s something that I deserve.”
