Medvedev disses haters at Davis Cup – “People can continue, I am going to win”

Daniil Medvedev dissed his haters at the Davis Cup, and urged them to keep up their hate.

The World Number 2 does not have a very good relationship with fans. They heckle him during most events, but he hasn’t let that get to him. In fact, he thrives on it, and he was at it again as he delivered a solid response to those who jeered at him.

After beating Jan-Lennard Struff, Medvedev imitated Manchester United and Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo’s iconic ‘calma’ celebration. He also stomped his foot hard on the court, drawing very loud boos from the crowd.

The Russian getting booed out of the court started at the US Open, when fans heckled him throughout his run to the final. He taunted them after he won the tournament, which didn’t make him the crowd’s favourite player.

Medvedev dissed his haters at the Davis Cup, and stated that all hate does is make him win more.

“Beating Spain was a highlight, I think beating Spain in Madrid was really, for all of us,” he said, as quoted by Tennishead.

“We were so happy in the locker room to beat the home favourites, it was a really nice feeling and I’m really happy about it.

“It started in 2019, but I’m not going to be tired to say it – people still don’t understand how to make me lose. They should support me, so it’s okay, continue, I’m going to just win!”

Ooh, burn

At least Medvedev was politically correct this time. It wasn’t the same during the Paris Masters final. He went on a pitchside tirade and verbally attacked the fans who were distracting him.

“I think it’s actually easier to enjoy life when you have no brain. Because then you just scream,” he had said back then.
