ATP Tennis Podcast: Medjedovic, Shelbayh Feature in Next Gen ATP Finals Special | ATP Tour

This week on the ATP Tennis podcast…

TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR ADAM HOGG ON THE NEXT GEN ATP FINALS PRESENTED BY NEOM IN JEDDAH – “The event has built a head of steam over the past five, six years and we’re really excited now to take the sport to a new marketplace in Saudi and to be the first professional tennis event in the Kingdom. It’s a huge opportunity.”

DOUBLES STAR EDOUARD ROGER-VASSELIN ON THE FRENCH PLAYERS – “In France we were so lucky to have Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils, Gilles Simon and Richard Gasquet who were Top 10, Top 20 for so many years. That makes all the young guys think that if they want to be part of French tennis history, they have to be that good.”

JOURNALIST LORENZO ERCOLI ON THE ITALIAN PLAYERS – “We have a lot of players right now, not only in the Top 100, but also in the Top 200. I think the big change was first of all in the preparation with players, they started to help private teams and that was very helpful.”

JOURNALIST NEBOJSA VISKOVIC ON HAMAD MEDJEDOVIC – “He’s a talented guy, a good junior but not top, but now he’s improving with small and steady steps and his work ethic is phenomenal.”

ABDULLAH SHELBAYH ON REPRESENTING TENNIS IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA – “I try to not put too much pressure on myself, but having Ons Jabeur and Malek Jaziri is something very inspiring for me. I also had the same coach as [Ons] before and that pushes me forward. Watching more Arabic players come to the tour is something very special.”
