“The fourth in the world cannot lose to a player who was injured and occupies the 200th line” – Chesnokov on Medvedev’s defeat in the match against Wawrinka



Former Russian tennis player Andrei Chesnokov commented on the defeat of Daniil Medvedev from Swiss Stan Wawrinka at a tournament in Metz (France).

– The fourth in the world cannot lose to a player who was injured and occupies the 200th line. It seems to me that in order to be in trend, it is necessary to make all 32 players play from the first round: both the first in the world and the hundredth in the world.

Played match points in the last game. Medvedev’s level should be better than 37-year-old Vavrinka. When 12 double faults are made, this indicates that Medvedev is playing poorly today: either he doesn’t care, or his coach has loaded him. For a man who was the first in the world yesterday, so many mistakes are unacceptable. That he played badly, that’s for sure.

However, Metz is not the tournament where you need to show off your knowledge. Now there will be tournaments where you have to give all the best. Perhaps the coach has now loaded him, – Chesnokov quotes the words “Championship”.

Famous Ukrainian tennis player went to war zone




world’s oldest 13 rackets Alexander Dolgopolov announced on his social networks that he was going to the war zone because he did not have time to wait:

“Friends, as you probably noticed, Russia has declared a grave for the third time in its history. At the beginning, I said, if there is an opportunity to learn, we should use the time, it will not end like this. Those who could do nothing (like me, for example) were given sufficient time.

Despite all the fears, I no longer see an opportunity to stay on the sidelines, this is a historic moment and I will not forgive myself if I do not participate. Take care of yourself and don’t forget the help you can afford. Glory to Ukraine!”.

Alexander actively supported the ZSU and engaged in territorial defense.

Earlier, Dolgopolov answered Elon Musk clearly and unequivocally to his “fantastic” statement about Crimea.

Who are the qualifiers for the Turin 2022 ATP Finals?

  • Carlos Alcaraz
  • Rafael Nadal
  • Casper Rudd
  • Stefanos Tsitsipas

September 2, Rafael Nadal became the first to qualify for the ATP Finals in Turin 2022. The Spaniard, surprisingly, has never won the tournament and will go for the feat in his 17th appearance. He reached the finals in 2010 and 2013.

The second name is Carlos Alcaraz, which earned him a ticket to the semi-finals of the US Open (a tournament he would later win). The 19-year-old Spaniard is having a great time in 2022 and will make his first time at the Masters at the end of the year. He is emerging as one of the big contenders to retain the trophy and upset compatriot Nadal once again.

Stefanos Tsitsipas He also got the ticket and will appear at the gala for the fourth time. It is worth noting that the Greek is only 24 years old and won it in 2019. Although 2022 has been an erratic season for the Greek (Masters 1000 titles in Monte Carlo and Mallorca), he has enough talent to confuse anyone in attendance. In 2021, due to injury, he played just one game (fell with Andrei Rublev).

Casper Rudd, like Alcaraz, will have his first time at the max date and is perhaps the most surprising name. The Norwegian has had an amazing 2022, with finals at Roland Garros and the US Open, and has earned the right to be in contention. The ranking was achieved in late September after qualifying for the second round of the ATP 250 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Who are in the hunt to qualify for the ATP Finals Torino 2022?

There are few points up for grabs (the last tournament is the M1000 in Paris, which concludes on November 6), but plenty of hopes and contenders to show up in Turin. Daniil Medvedev, who has managed to top the rankings in 2022, is yet to make the cut but is likely to qualify, as is Russia’s Andrei Rublev.

Felix Auger-Aliassim also has his “virtual pass”, as does Novak Djokovic. The Serb, being a Grand Slam champion and staying in the top 20, would steal his presence Alexander Zverev, which is the actual eighth. The German has yet to return to action following his right ankle injury and surgery at Roland Garros.

Those expecting a good end of the year and ranking are: Hubert Hurkacz, Taylor Fritz, Cameron Norrie, Jannik Sinner, Pablo Carreño Busta and Matteo Berrettini.
