Tennis legend Daniil Medvedev has taken an awful stance about his on-court persona, which has put him in great trouble, especially with his opponents in the game along with officials and crowds. Notably, the star player is currently part of the Italian Open 2024, where he will be looking to defend its title.

Notably, Medvedev has been known for his distinctive teamwork on the tennis court, which creates controversy most of the time, and he is now known as one of the most polarising figures in the tennis fraternity. Notably, the Russian was engaged in heated altercations with the main officials during the Monte Carlo Masters early this year when the point was wrongly awarded to his opponent, Karen Khachanov, during the game.

However, Medvedev has recently claimed that tantrums are part of him on the on-field tennis court. Daniil believes that his tantrums show who he is, and he won't be hiding his traits no matter what.

"You go look at the mark, the mark is fricking out. They don’t know how to referee anymore; the mark is out. Who will take action? Who will take action?" a furious Medvedev asked loudly.

I’m going to have some tantrums, and stuff like this, that’s just who I am: Daniil Medvedev

"I’m going to have some tantrums, and stuff like this, that’s just who I am. I’m not going to be able to beat it, because if I beat it, it’s just as if I’m hiding it. And it’s not good hiding things," Medvedev told rolandgarros.com.

Meanwhile, Medvedev produces a great masterclass in the Australian Open 2024 with a great win over Nuno Borges. However, the Russian-born star later explained the full reason as well as why he chose to adopt a return position deep behind the baseline.

"He (Courier) seems like a super nice guy. I really like talking to him. feel like when I talk to him, people can see this side of my personality because it's a little bit different than [when] I'm on the tennis court," Medvedev said.
