WATCH: Daniil Medvedev fires four aces to win a game in just 29 seconds
Daniil Medvedev crashed out of the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart on Wednesday, but he certainly left an impression.
The Russian fell to Louis Pouille in a disappointing three-set defeat, but he produced half a minute of pure magic in Germany, hitting four aces to win a game in just 29 seconds.
Despite the defeat, Medvedev has been one of the most improved players on the ATP Tour this year, and he has attributed it to ditching his Playstation and moving to France.
“In the big Russian cities, everything is open 24 hours,” he recently told Figaro.
“On Sunday, you can go shopping alone. In France, that does not happen. I like coming back to Russia.
“It’s really my home. My second home. But the work was not very intense there. When I came to France, I was exhausted at the end of the training session.
“I did nothing when I came back home. I have been much more of a professional for a year and a half. I train more, I do not attend parties all nights and I play PlayStation less during tournaments.”
