After the match, Daniil talked about the different terrain and the next opponent.

In a difficult match, Daniil Medvedev gave the finishing touch to Tomas Machac and reached the fourth round of Roland Garros, after which he answered questions from the Championship.

—What happened in the third set? I immediately led with a break and then lost six games in a row. “In the first two sets I played to the limit, he forced me to do it. I played well and that’s why I took them. And in the third he had a bad game at 1-0, and then he couldn’t stand his own level, but he continued playing well. I’m glad that in the fourth I was able to compose myself and play to the limit.

— Are the soil in the sun and the soil in the rain completely different? Are these two Roland Garros different? — The game is completely different. Yes, the fundamentals remain the same, but the bounce is completely different. When I started, the rain and the cold on the ground were terrible for me, I didn’t know how to play. Now I feel that, on the contrary, it is easier for me. We’ll see. We have to win anyway.

— Lately we have been talking a lot about mental health. How to control it…? – There is no answer, haha.

– Yesterday there was a not very pleasant example. Today it seemed like your demons were trying to break through. – We tried, yes. Sometimes they say it’s good to break a scandal and let off some steam. There are probably matches where you need to do this. But if you take the majority, you play better when you are silent. I don’t always manage to do it myself. This year there was a great click in Rome. Then I went out with Paul and I was thinking the wrong things, angry about the wrong things. I lost a lot of time and couldn’t get back to the game in time. It’s good that this happened before the Grand Slam. I realized that this definitely cannot be done. I try not to let the demons out, I focus only on the victory.

— One match until the best result is repeated. In 2021 you were in the quarterfinals, in 2022 you were in the fourth round. In comparison, would you say that you feel better at Roland Garros this year?— In 2021 I felt very good, I don’t know what happened then, but it was great. But I still played worse on cold ground and in the quarterfinals they faced Tsitsipas overnight, which hindered me. In general I feel much better on clay. I’m much calmer, I understand the clay court game much better.

—What will be key in the match with De Minaur? – Many things. We always have long draws. Swap from left to left to see who gets to the line first. Too many details. Who will make fewer mistakes, who will serve better, who will take advantage of break points better. It will be physically difficult. I feel good though. I hope I can.
