Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal attended the retirement ceremony of their great rival, Roger Federer, and today it was revealed why the current number four on the ATP list did not attend this event.
Let’s remind you that between the 23rd and 25th of September Laver Cup took place in London, and it was an exhibition tournament where Roger Federer retired from professional tennis.
Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev was supposed to play in the tournament, but by the start of it, he stated that he would not be traveling to London. However, today, he announced what really happened behind the scenes.
“The truth is, according to all the rules of the competition, I should’ve been invited to Laver Cup as well. Yet, I was not, and not because I refused the invitation. I’ve had problems in acquiring a visa for England, and in order to avoid causing any problems, I decided not to travel,” Medvedev recently stated.
