Daniil Medvedev is on the front pages of newspapers today after reaching the world number 1 ranking. Medvedev’s wife Daria also made the news for wearing Ukrainian colors courtside.
We all can applaud Daria for her boldness because the Russian government can’t be too happy about her wearing Ukraine color while Russia is launching an assault on Ukraine. She is sending a message of support to Ukraine.
Daniil Medvedev and Daria married in 2018 when Medvedev was just 22. They dated and lived together for four years before marrying. Daria was a promising junior players but her tennis career was cut short by injuries. She studied journalism in Moscow after retiring from tennis.
It’s uncertain what will happen to the tournaments that are held in Russia. With many countries imposing sanction on Russia, most tournaments will likely be canceled.
