September 26, Beijing time Nadal said that this year's French Open was "the toughest condition in history" for him. He believes that there are many reasons, including the slowness and weight of the French Open. In this regard, Tim and Medvedev both agreed.
New Komei Open champion Tim: "I used this ball to train for two days when I was at home, and tried it here. I'm a little sad. Because I used the ball at the French Open before it was my favorite and it was great. The ball is fast and can hit a very powerful topspin."
"This ball is also good now. But it's a bit slow. After a while, the ball becomes heavier."
"Generally speaking, the conditions here will become slower and slower. It may rain and it may become very cold. These difficult situations will be a huge challenge to everyone's mentality. I think all the games It will be carried out under rainy weather. It will be very difficult."
"The situation here is a bit like New York. Players who can overcome all difficult conditions can get the farthest in the game."
Medvedev: "Maybe a little bit of cold weather can help me, so that the ball will not fly so high and the top spin will not be so strong."
"Maybe I can practice some flat shots in training. I think the conditions here may be an opportunity and an advantage for me."
