"I have to follow the rules" - Medvedev happy after US Open doesn't impose any ban on Russian players

Daniil Medvedev is happy the USTA has decided not to ban Russian players from playing the US Open, where he is the defending champion.

Speaking in Halle where he is ucrrently competing Medvedev said:

"I always say that I have to follow the rules. And where I can play, I'm gonna play, I'm going to try to play my best."

The USTA announced that it will not ban Russian and Belarusian players from playing the US Open—unlike Wimbledon, which will not allow players from those nations to compete at the grass-court major.

Medvedev further added:

"I'm happy that I will be able to defend. It would be really disappointing if I would not, because that's some great memories and always in US Open, it's an amazing tournament—probably the more special one for me."

On his plans on the future Medvedev said:

"I'm going to play in Mallorca next week, for sure. Also great tournament. Since I don't play to play Wimbledon, I'm okay to play three weeks in a row. I'm going to stay a few days there, and then I'll come back to the South of France, and yeah, prepare for the US Open series.''
