"I definitely have to change my game": Daniil Medvedev before Monte Carlo

The Russian tennis player will start in Monte Carlo on April 12.

Daniil Medvedev has thrived on hard courts this season, winning four tour-level titles, including his fifth ATP Masters 1000 crown in Miami earlier this month.

Competing on the dirt at this week's Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters, Medvedev is ready to adapt his game to play on the dirt court.

"I definitely have to change my game because my strokes are too flat and the dirt doesn't allow the ball to go across the court as often," Medvedev said at a pre-tournament press conference.

The 27-year-old has to change his game, which is not an ideal situation for a player who has been close to perfect with what he has on hard courts.

Daniil Medvedev will start at the Monte Carlo tournament on Wednesday, April 12. His first opponent will be Lorenzo Sonego of Italy.
