Russian professor comments on Daniil Medvedev’s hairdo

In the finals of the US Open, World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev showed incredible display against Novak Djokovic. Medvedev was able to lift the championship at Flushing Meadows as a result. According to Alexander Poleev, a Russian professor, Medvedev’s new haircut could be a sign of great self-esteem.

“He won a Grand Slam tournament, which the Russians hadn’t done for 16 years.  He was looking for an image of a winner. And a sharp jump in self-esteem among athletes is very common,” Poleev told on Match TV

“After victory, Medvedev believed in himself, believed that he could become a winner in the next tournaments – and this requires a short haircut. In the heat, the hair gets in the way,” he further added.

Poleev likewise emphasized the importance of establishing social standing over the monetary gain from victory.

After winning the US Open 2021, Daniil Medvedev has earned a lot of attention. Medvedev also took the Laver Cup trophy from Team Europe.

Medvedev made his Laver Cup debut in 2021, following an incredible title victory at the US Open. The Russian maintained his US Open success by easily defeating Denis Shapovalov in straight sets. He led Team Europe to a 9-1 victory over Team World.

“I played unbelievable tennis, especially in the second set. I didn’t know what to expect because, after the US Open, I didn’t play for a week-and-a-half.” He added, “I came here, practised as much as I could the last three days. I didn’t hit many balls but, surprisingly, I was feeling good,” Medvedev said, according to reports on Laver Cup.

He’ll be hoping to keep up his incredible form in the coming months, as all eyes will be on him as the new year approaches.
