World No.3 Daniil Medvedev wants all the tennis tournaments to have larger tennis courts. He called smaller courts a disadvantage to him and other players as well.
During his fourth-round match against Aslan Karatsev at the recently-concluded 2023 Madrid Open, Medvedev lamented over the playing on small courts but he understands that it’s not possible to make every tennis court larger.
“Why do I have this disadvantage when I am No 2 [seed]? I don’t understand. It’s a little bit strange, right?” Medvedev said at that time.
He then opened up about his frustration with the restrictive court dimensions in Madrid during his pre-tournament press conference at the 2023 Italian Open.

“From one point of view, I understand probably all the tournaments in the world cannot make all the match courts as big as I want or some other players want. At the same time it’s a disadvantage,” Medvedev said.
“Yeah, I would love every tennis court to be 10 meters large and 10 meters wide, but I also understand it’s not possible. Every time I’m not going to have my space on the return, I’m going to be disappointed because I cannot play my best tennis,” he added.
