Medvedev's Coach Explains in Detail how Daniil Beat Alcaraz - USO 2023Sep 10, 2023
Okay, King Henrik was in the house Okay, yeah, okay, congratulations, thank you, so let's open up to questions from the floor, uh, name an affiliation please, we have to move forward. We have a lot of press conferences coming up, Matt, could you? I would like to go first Yes Yes Such a temperamental player to
coachHow do you handle him during matches? During training. During a game like tonight. How do you prepare it? because he said before that there were many doubts before the game. something you don't hear a lot of players say Yeah, well, I mean, this match was pretty easy, I mean, and like two years ago against Djokovic, you know, at the beginning of the match I thought, okay, let's see. immediately if he is in the zone and ready to play a great game and in the final two years ago I felt that he was in the zone to play an incredible game and the game he just played, but for the rest of your question.
Yes, that's true, before this tournament it was really very difficult, every day it was very difficult on the practice court because then it's a type of player and I guess I want to say that every player is difficult to
coach, everyone is different, but Danilia can be very, very tough, so she requires me to be very, very strong also within myself to see what is happening on the court, what is happening in her head to have the good, you know, the good reaction, good words. uh I don't mean I don't shake when something is really difficult at that moment and when she tries to push me and um I think when I watch this tournament, again I had the good too from my perspective.

He was in the zone to be the good coach he needed to be coached to play the best open tennis he ever had. How different do you think playing in Ash and New York is from playing in Indian Wells? In other words, right? It opened up some options for Daniel that he could use against Carlos and that he might not be able to use all of them in Indian Wells. Well, I mean, as you know, in every tournament the conditions are totally different. In the universe it's a very slow course here, even if it's slower this year, it's still quite a bit faster than Indian Wells, so this makes a big difference and then you know that when you play against players and you lose, you learn a lot of things that you know. , so it gives you some goals for next time and I think it was also all the games that you already played against Carlos that helped for tonight, what is one or two specific things that you learned and that you implemented?
Now you keep saying that maybe you need it to be that way. better than himself an 11 of 12, but what is something specific that he did better tonight against Carlos that he didn't do in the last few? Well, I think it was his preparation, I mean, in his mind, you know the strategy to use. uh because Daniela and like many players think first of all with the strategy, these are the main things and uh yesterday when we talked uh we talked a lot about the strategy but at the same time I because I need to use the strategy and also the different thing that I believe in sports , you know, the energy, you can have the determination, uh, that makes a big difference also in the efficiency of your game, so we talked about this part as well and tried, I mean, him.
I tried to do a combination of everything we said and because he is an incredible player, he did it today. Perfectly correct. Australia. How important was it for him to win this match considering the previous two that he hadn't even wanted to face? to rebalance the rivalry a little more, yes, I think I mean how important it is. I can't precisely answer this question, but yes, I know you know in a race, especially now because he forever he will have this wind. in his head and for the rest of the season and the rest and for the next year as well to know that he did it, so I think it's something where you build your confidence in this way, you can probably do it. you feel like you're still among the best, I mean he knows he's among the best players, but it's different being in the top five than being ready to
beatone of the top two or three and I think this one would help you. this, but I'm sure we talked a little bit about his athleticism.
I think sometimes they overlook it how well he covers the floor, his speed, his defense and where you think his athleticism compares to some of the other top guys. Um, I'm not trying. I understood your question well, so you talk, you asked me about his uh, his conditioning, right, yeah, how good is his speed on the court, how well does he cover, how well does he play defense? . I think sometimes people don't realize how well he does all those things, yes I refer to myself as his coach, yes of course I know what this part is like, you know one of the fundamental parts of his game, you know, the thing is pretty fast, but you know it's you.
I see the damage and his legs so he can cover the chords so well and um, sometimes I try to be in the other's eyes in his opponent to realize how the opponent must play to
beathim and sometimes I think like, wow, it's incredible because every shot comes back and comes back, we know it like tonight, because sometimes it had to do with a long run, I had to be able to make a strong shot because Carlos' shot was very very hard and powerful and it was deep and he was able to contouring this type of shot, so yeah, this is the backbone of his game, but he always regrets it, this is something he's had since he was his son, you know and um. you can, you can build, but at the same time you have it or you don't have it, it really came.
Speaking to me ESPN, you talked a minute ago about the mental effect that this Knight will have on Daniel in the future, what mental effect he will have. against Djokovic, well, the 2021 match in the last year has a fundamental state going into the next one, well, I need, I think I need more time to think about this part for the next match, but yeah, you probably know both. The players would have this in mind because it is the same place, the same big skies, when they played. I think so, the last time they played. You know, here, yeah, it was there, but they played during.
