In January 2022, Daria also shared how she met Daniil, and the pair were just kids during their first meeting. She was just 12 and met the Russian ace during a junior tournament. Medvedeva was eating at a café with a few of her friends and heard someone howling:

“Suddenly, we hear someone howling, crying, the sound of a racquet being thrown. My mom asks what’s going on. Veronika Kudermetova’s dad starts laughing, ‘It’s Medvedev playing. You don’t know him?’ We went to watch him.

It was something else,” Daria Medvedeva told Tatler. “Three and a half hour match. Moonballs, 50-shot rallies… From his childhood Danya used to fight till the end, he was prepared to do anything on court, no matter how ugly his game may look, in order to win.
