Daniil Medvedev Rides a Wave of Hostility at the U.S. Open

The 23-year-old Medvedev has advanced to his first Grand Slam quarterfinal and turned a booing New York crowd into a bunch of amusing adversaries. Daniil Medvedev has become the dominant men’s tennis player of the summer through tactical savvy, finding and exploiting weaknesses in his opponents with a ruthless brilliance. Now Medvedev has fearlessly taken on the most challenging opponent the United States Open has to offer: the New York crowd.

After two matchups, Medvedev is 2-0. By giving raucous support to his opponents, the crowd has played into his hands, he said and propelled him into his first Grand Slam quarterfinal. He will play Stan Wawrinka on Tuesday afternoon.

“They kind of don’t understand that they shouldn’t do it,” said Medvedev. “I feed on this energy, and that’s what I’m doing this tournament.” “It’s probably the most electric atmosphere I’ve played in my whole entire life,” Medvedev said. “Sometimes you play the first round of an ATP tournament where there are 50 people watching you on a small court. This is completely different. I’m trying to take this electricity, feed on it, and that’s helped me a lot these last two matches.”
