“I personally spoke with Daniil, a possible visit here was on the agenda, but given his busy schedule it was impossible. At the end of the season he was the one who played the more tournaments, reaching finals and semi-finals almost everywhere. After such a load, he needs rest – he is now on vacation.

We are always happy to see Andrey Rublev, he has played with us several times. He is on our shortlist,” quotes Medvedev.
