Daniil Medvedev weighs in on Serena Williams’ reception at US Open

Daniil Medvedev says the US Open is “completely Serena Williams’ tournament” as he is amazed by the interest the American’s career-final tournament is drawing. On Wednesday night in New York, Williams defeated second-seeded Anett Kontaveit 7-6 (4) 2-6 6-2 to progress into the third round.

On Monday, Williams’ match versus Danka Kovinic broke the US Open attendance record after 29,402 people attended the match. Against Kontaveit, a new record was set as 29,959 spectators came out to support Williams. “It’s completely her tournament, in my opinion,” Medvedev said, via Sportskeeda.

“Here it’s New York, it’s Serena, icon, queen. Every point you know what’s happening. If it’s silent, point is to the other girl. If it goes boom, then Serena won the point. It was easy to know the score every time.

Yeah, it’s just amazing. I’m not sure I saw anything like this before.”

Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, turned back the clock and delivered a big performance against one of the top seeded palyers in the draw.

After easily losing the second set, Williams was able to find her focus and cruise past the third set to complete a big victory over second-seeded Kontaveit. “She played pretty amazing. Also after the second set that she lost, never know how the third is going to go.

Straightaway she was there, playing great tennis. Really happy for her. Hoping to see what she can do at the end,” Medvedev added. After Williams finished her match, Medvedev was next on Arthur Ashe. In the US Open second round, Medvedev also handled the business as he defeated Arthur Rinderknech 6-2 7-5 6-3.

In the next round, Medvedev faces Yibing Wu. Medvedev, the defending US Open champion, hasn’t dropped a set through the first two matches at Flushing Meadows. It remains to be seen if Medvedev can defend his US Open title.
