Marked by his defeat in the final of the Australian Open 2022 against Rafael, after leading two sets to nil, and annoyed by the attitude of the public, Daniil Medvedev dropped this mythical phrase at a press conference : “the kid in me stopped dreaming today”.
A year later, before the start of the 2023 edition, the Russian returns to this statement.
“You have to put things in context: I said that 30 minutes after one of the biggest defeats of my career, so emotions are bound to play. It was not easy with the public during the game. I remember after winning the second set in the tie-break after a big point, I was happy, which is normal. And people whistled at me at that time, and that rarely happens in tennis. And I wasn’t well after the game, so the kid wasn’t dreaming anymore. »
