You already heard about #FightSmart, a concept in the DNA of our Brand, but how would you define it?
We actually thought the players would be the best persons to help us on that.
Daria Kasatkina and Daniil Medvedev share their FightSmart sides

Daria Kasatkina – The Jumping Backhand

3… 2… 1… Lift-off : once I’m in the air it feels

Like time has somehow stopped.

I feel weightless as I calculate the ball's trajectory.

It amazes me how a moment so small, can be such a big part of your game.

Then in an instant- game,, set, and match. It’s over.

 

Daniil Medvedev – Fighting Spirit

I’ve overcome obstacles...no matter how daunting they may seem..they’re just another step on my way to the top.

First step apprendre une nouvelle langue, second step training every opportunity I have, third step, moving out of my comfort zone.

What’s the next step ? It doesn’t matter, because I’m ready for it.

I’ve always been determined to pursue my dreams.

Are you ready to follow yours ?

 

Daria Kasatkina – Balance

Nobody was born a top player - and there’s a fine line you have to walk in order to become one.

It’s all about habits : Travel, Train, Match, Press. Sleep. Rinse and repeat.

Sometimes the ball bounces your way, and sometimes it doesn’t.

To reach the top of your game, you have to find stability.

I’ve found, sometimes it’s better to take step back from tennis, to elevate my game.

Being committed to taking advantage of every moment, while keeping my eye on the ball...

Finding detachment in my full commitment.

To express the best version of myself, on and off the court

What helps you find your balance ?

Daria Kasatkina – Creativity

What is creativity ? Look.

Variation - backhand, dropshot, slice, topspin -

Every swing of my racket, resonates with emotion.

My game, is a reflection of my creativity.

and my creativity, is a reflection of my game.

That’s how I play my game. Use your creativity, and play yours

 

Daniil Medvedev – Reading the Game

Tennis is all about strategy.

It’s a battle, from start to finish.

And it’s not just about playing fast, it’s about playing smart.

I analyze the weaknesses and strengths of my opponents.

How should I position myself on the court ? What effects should I use ?

Forehand, Backhand, Hit hard, Hit soft

I always try to stay one step ahead of my rival.

Checkmate.
