Andrey Chesnokov: It’s a shame that even after Medvedev’s victory like this, football in Russia will be more popular than tennis
Famous Russian tennis player Andrey Chesnokov compared the popularity of tennis and football in Russia.
“Even after a spectacular victory in such an important tournament, football in Russia will be more popular. There is a lot of money in football, and other sports make ends meet. It’s a shame.
Medvedev beat all the top players in one tournament. I don’t remember anything like that at all. He got out hopeless balls in this tournament, a real championship game. Last year, Dania made a phenomenal leap, at the beginning of this season he had a failure. However, he corrected the situation. If he can play as in the end of this year, he can consistently be second or third in the rankings. It is quite difficult to climb in high positions. But there are opportunities to become the first in the ranking.
The tennis player plays at the Olympics once every four years, and at the Grand Slam tournaments – 16. The Olympic medal is a great success. I think Medvedev with such a game has good chances at the Olympics, “- quotes Chesnokov’s words” Sport Express “.
