Former Roland-Garros finalist Andreï Medvedev involved in the war in Ukraine

This is not a trivial cliche. On Tuesday, on his Instagram account, Ukrainian tennis player Sergiy Stakhovsky posted a photo showing him arms in hand with Andrei Medvedev, former Roland-Garros finalist in 1999 (defeat in the final against Andre Agassi).

Aged 47, Medvedev was born in kyiv and therefore joined the team he still led a year ago in the David Cup to represent the colors of Ukraine. This time, he is committed to defending the borders and the sovereignty of his country, invaded by the Russian army since February 24.

« World tennis legend Andrei Medvedev stays in Kyiv and is ready to face the enemywrote Stakhovsky in the message accompanying the photo. I am incredibly happy to see the captain of the Ukrainian national team on our side. Patriot. »
