Dasha Medvedeva has spoken about what it has been like becoming a parent alongside ATP Tour star Daniil Medvedev.

Medvedeva says that her husband has been heavily involved with her nutrition company RawQ Foods.

She said that he is ‘very involved and very demanding’ when it comes to new products.

Medvedeva would add that their daughter shares his strong character, which has made parenting interesting for her.

“He’s very demanding. We have something new coming out very soon. And he already knows what. And he’s asking all the time. So, he really wants to have it first. And to work with us, of course,” Medvedeva said in a video-recorded conversation with RawQ Foods co-founder Arina Kuzmina.

She describes Alisa’s character as strong and challenging but says that she has been delighted to become a mother.

Medvedeva adds that her husband has been very good at taking care of his daughter.

“It’s tough. She has a lot of character,” she joked. “And it’s fun to see also how Daniil co-operates with his own character. So, yeah… very, very fun.””It’s an interesting feeling for sure, but the happiest one.”

In September 2018, Medvedev tied the knot with Daria, his longtime partner. In October 2022, the couple welcomed their first child together, a girl named Alisa.

Daria has regularly accompanied the former World No 1 to his matches, and footage of her enthusiastically supporting him from the players’ box is routinely taken.

These days, the couple also takes their little daughter on trips.

Medvedev will compete at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships where he is the defending champion.

This follows withdrawals from other events in recent weeks, including Rotterdam and Doha in the last two weeks.

Medvedev has stated that he has not been prepared to return to the court after losing in two sets to Jannik Sinner in the Australian Open final.

The Russian spent most of the competition playing five-set epics, whereas Sinner returned only last week following a less taxing event.

Sinner won the Rotterdam Open and rose to world No 3, dethroning Medvedev following his first Grand Slam victory.

The ATP 500 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships have a history of welcoming some of the top players in the game.

Medvedev has never succesfully defended a title and has also never won the same event more than once.

The world No 4 last won a tournament in May 2023 and has lost the last four finals he has played in.
