Chesnokov: “The Astana tournament corresponds to the Grand Slam level. There are such players – my dear mother!

1989 Roland Garros semi-finalist Andrey Chesnokov said that the ATP 500 tournament in Astana corresponds to the level of the Grand Slam tournament in terms of the composition of tennis players, and also assessed the chances of Russian tennis players for the trophy.

Fourth racket in the world Daniel Medvedev in the first round will play with the Spaniard Albert Ramos-Viñolas. opponents Andrei Rublev in the second round will be the Chinese Zhang Chichen, who beat the Russian at the start of the tournament Aslan Karatsev.

— This tournament in Kazakhstan is somehow unrealistic. The level of the Grand Slam tournament, if you remove the first 2 or 3 rounds of it. It’s amazing what is happening. There are such players – dear mother! In this tournament, any tennis player can do something. I can’t say that Rublev has no chance of winning the tournament. He has a chance, but not as big as Djokovic, who warmed up and won the tournament (in Tel Aviv).

Medvedev’s chances? Let’s see how he plays the game. The last match with Wawrinka, he played badly.

Another Karatsev defeat? He lost confidence. And that comes with wins,” Chesnokov told The Championship.
