Daniil Medvedev apologises to reporter at Wimbledon after beating Jannik Sinner



Daniil Medvedev apologised to a reporter at Wimbledon after being unable to answer their question in a press conference. The Russian overcame world No.1 Jannik Sinner in a thrilling four-hour five-set match to reach the semi-finals at the All England Club.

After beating Sinner 6-7 (7-9), 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), 2-6, 6-3 Medvedev now faces Carlos Alcaraz in the final four. It is a repeat of the same semi-final from 12 months ago which Alcaraz won in straight sets.
Medvedev’s defeat of Italian Sinner was a record-breaking 36th five-set match at Wimbledon this year. No single Grand Slam has ever had more five-setters in the Open Era.

The world No.5 was asked why he thinks that is the case, but was unable to offer an explanation and said sorry. He replied: “I don’t know. Maybe the level is closer than before.
You do one bad game on your serve, double-fault, easy miss or something like this, and you can lose the set. In my opinion, it’s more about grass court tennis itself. So, yeah, I don’t know. I have no answer. Sorry.”
