Daniil Medvedev won his quarterfinal match at the US Open on Wednesday against Andrey Rublev, another Russian player. A player, he said, may “die” from the “brutal” competition circumstances.

Medvedev defeated Rublev in straight sets (6-4, 6-3, 6-4), but both players were struggling in the humid conditions inside Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Medvedev, who will win the US Open in 2021, took two medical breaks throughout the match. Both times he used an inhaler to combat the effects of the difficult situations.

Throughout the entire game, both competitors wiped their sweat with towels. This was because the match was very hard on their bodies.

Medvedev, who is 27 years old, could be heard midway through the third set informing the camera, “One player is going to die, and you will see.”

Temperatures in Flushing Meadows reached 93 degrees Fahrenheit, with a heat index of 96. Wednesday, 8 p.m.

Medvedev described the conditions as “brutal” after the victory, stating that he couldn’t see the ball near the end of the first set.

Medvedev declared in court, “The only good thing I can think of is that they are both suffering.” It was a difficult time for both of us. There were some volatility, but that is to be expected. At the conclusion of the first set, I had difficulty seeing the ball. I played with how things felt.”

“I tried to sprint after it, as did he. I was thinking before points, “Wow, he can’t run anymore,” so I went and tried to make him run and run and run, but he was always there. But we were always exhausted. Conditions were horrible, and it was very hard to win.”

In such exhausting and muggy conditions, it was Medvedev who was able to muster the necessary energy reserves to win and advance to the US Open semifinals.

Long rallies and games made it even more difficult for the players on court to distinguish between the two Russians, who had previously described themselves as “extremely close friends” with Rublev, the godfather of Medvedev’s daughter.

Huge victories

But Medvedev was able to squeeze enough errors out of Rublev to win in straight sets; the match was encapsulated by a 15-minute marathon of a final game that lasted until Medvedev finally won on his fifth match point after two hours and 48 minutes.

Medvedev demonstrated why he is a serious contender for this year’s title by recovering from a break down in each set to win impressively despite the weather and a formidable opponent.

He will next play either Carlos Alcaraz or Alexander Zverev, both of whom have matches scheduled for later on Wednesday, for a spot in the final.
