Daniil Medvedev


Russian tennis star Daniil Medvedev has expressed his awe over the Grand Slam accomplishments of the ‘Big Three’ – combined moniker for Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. Speaking to reporters after progressing to the Australian Open quarters with a comfortable victory over Mackenzie McDonald of the United States on Monday, the Russian said that his mind boggles at the thought of how far he has to go to even come close to what the Big Three have achieved in Majors. Medvedev says he doesn’t see himself matching the Big Three’s Grand Slam feats The World Number 4 said that although it is fair to assume that he is one of the top players in the contemporary men’s circuit, he is yet to sink his teeth into Grand Slam glory and has a long way to go before he can even dream of rivaling the Big Three. Medvedev, who won back-to-back titles at the elite Rolex Paris Masters and the ATP Finals last year, said he grew up watching Pete Sampras set his own mark with 14 Grand Slam and felt the record will stand forever like the ones being set by soccer superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Putting some context into the argument of him emulating the Big Three’s incredible Grand Slam numbers, the Russian said he would have to win all the Majors over the next five years to cross the milestones set by Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic. Daniil Medvedev moved into the quarters of Australian Open on Monday Also, bringing his poor run at the French Open to the context, a smiling Medvedev said, “Roland-Garros, I’m not so good so far.” While not saying as much, the Russian conceded that reaching where the ‘Big Three’ have gone might prove to be a bridge too far for him. “Five years in a row I need to win every Slam against amazing opponents, five-set matches, not be injured. That’s ridiculous numbers,” said Medvedev, who took Russia to its maiden ATP Cup title this year. He settled the argument with a glowing tribute to the Big Three, calling them “the greatest players in the history of tennis.” READ MORE- Unorthodox but Effective: The Mystery Behind Daniil Medvedev’s Style of Play

Andrey Rublev ensured Grand Slam history will be made for Russia after setting up an Australian Open quarterfinal against compatriot Daniil Medvedev on Monday.
With qualifier Aslan Karatsev already through to face Grigor Dimitrov in the top half of the draw, it means there will be three Russian men in the last eight of a Slam for the first time since the Open era began in 1968.
Fourth seed Medvedev extended his win streak to 18 matches Monday when he took just 89 minutes to blow away Mackenzie McDonald 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 and reach the quarter-finals of the Australian Open.
World number eight Rublev followed Medvedev onto Margaret Court Arena and was back in the locker room even quicker, as Norway’s Casper Ruud retired with the scores at 6-2, 7-6 (7/3).
“At least one of us will be in the semi-finals. So it’s good news but yeah, it’s going to be a tough match,” said Rublev after his short workout against the 24th seed, who had received treatment for an injury midway through the second set.
“Last time he beat me in the quarters in the US Open. So now we’re in the quarters in the Australian Open, so we’ll see what’s going to happen.”
Rublev also reached the quarterfinals at Roland Garros last year in a breakthrough season that saw him win five ATP Tour titles, more than any other player.
He won 41 matches, equal with world number one Novak Djokovic as the best in 2020, and started 2021 on an eight-match streak after winning all four of his singles to help Russia win the ATP Cup, alongside Medvedev.
Fourth seed Medvedev’s best Grand Slam performance to date was reaching the final at the 2019 US Open.
His unbeaten run dates back to November and includes titles at the Paris 1000, the ATP Finals in London and the ATP Cup.
But Medvedev said the Russian pair, both in maiden Australian Open quarter-finals, would push their friendship aside on Wednesday when they aim for the last four.
“It’s our job — of course during the match we’re going to try to win, fight for our best,” said Medvedev.
“You never know. Sometimes you can maybe… argue on the court or something because we’re competitors.
“After the match we are great friends.”
The last Russian man to win a Grand Slam was Marat Safin at Melbourne Park in 2005.

Aslan Karatsev (l.) pulled out a comeback Sunday after finding himself down two sets against Felix Auger-Aliassime (r.).Photo: Getty ImagesAs we’ve previously stated, the Australian Open has a surreal quality, at least on these shores, where an already-niche sport takes place in the dark for only the truly dedicated/bewildered. It’s even more so this edition, as on Friday the live spectators were shooed out of the tournament altogether, thanks to the state of Victoria’s latest COVID lockdown (and it merely took a handful of cases on the outskirts of town for the government to put those in. Imagine having that kind of leadership, responsibility, and care for your neighbor. Maybe when you already live in Australia, amongst all the things that can kill you instantly, you’re more aware of avoiding the extraneous dangers). Anyway, that led to the bizarre sight of the Taylor Fritz-Novak Djokovic match having to be held up for 10 minutes while the crowd left, right at the time the stadium would normally be filling up to watch a possible massive upset. It was a cavernous echo that responded to Djokovic’s roar as he pulled out the 5th set against Fritz, instead of a rapturous roar (or begrudging acceptance and a guarded appreciation rather than a soaking-in of Djokovic’s greatness, as it tends to be with him and crowds). But neither Djokovic nearly eating it early, nor home hero Nick Kyrgrios spitting away a two-set lead to Dominic Thiem on the same night is the biggest story on the men’s side of the draw (and that victory left Thiem a fine paste, as he was bulldozed by Gregor Dimitrov in his next match in straight sets last night). Aslan Karatsev had never played in a Grand Slam before this one. He’s 27, which is generally when a player has established his career arc, for better or for worse. He’s ranked 114th in the world, though that’s a result mostly of tearing it up on the Challenger Tour last year, the tier below the ATP. He was ranked 300 before that. And now he has bulldozed his way to the quarterfinals where he’ll meet Dimitrov. Karatsev hadn’t dropped a set in his first three matches, and had only lost 20 games in his three wins. He rolled into the fourth-round having completely clubbed Diego Schwartzman, (ranked 8th) in straight sets in the third. Perhaps the most refreshing thing about watching Karatsev pull off an actual, tennis-version of Hoosiers, is that he plays like someone who has nothing to lose. Because he doesn’t. It’s the way you’ve always wanted to walk into a Vegas casino with a bankroll, until you remember your mortgage or kids’ college fund or how friendly your spouse seems to be with the neighbor. A complete, “Fuck it, it’s free cake” attitude toward life. Karatsev has been simply bombing it from the baseline, going for every shot that’s there and some that aren’t. It’s what American hope Frances Tiafoe has been attempting for years, but without the restrictor plates that would keep him within limits long enough to make serious noise. Karatsev thunders forehands and backhands to within inches of the baseline, because if you have his story, and you don’t know how much longer this will last, you’re not going to waste time with “feeling your way into a match” or “strategy” or “ logic.” It’s like taco night at college for Karatsev. We’ll worry about the gastrointestinal issues when we get to them. Schwartzman’s game is based on being a backboard, and he was basically reduced to a spectator to Karatsev’s laser show. G/O Media may get a commissionKaratsev’s latest rolling of sevens came against Felix Auger-Aliassime, the Canadian who has promised so much for a couple seasons now and yet hasn’t quite broken down all the firewalls on his game that would unlock so much. Karatsev was down two sets, and it appeared his pressing his engine to 7000 RPM for the length of the tournament had overcooked it. He piled up 26 unforced errors in the first two sets to just seven winners, while Auger-Aliassime played very cleanly and simply and let Karatsev’s lines blow. But Karatsev found the rhythm over the next three sets, piling up 30 winners in the final three sets, including 22 in the final two, as F.A.A.’s game broke down. Karatsev is the first qualifier to get to the quarters in Melbourne in 32 years. He’s the first qualifier to get to any Slam in 10. He’s the first player to make the quarters of his first Slam in 25 years. It’s a complete joyride, and long may it continue. Elsewhere, Daniil Medvedev continued his tortured genius approach to life with a five-set win on Friday that saw him berate his own coach for so long and so often, and in three different languages just for variety’s sake, the dude just got up and left before Medvedev pulled himself out of his ennui to blitz Filip Krajinovic in the 5th set 6-0, which saved Medvedev from blowing his own two-set lead. The constant harassing of a coach not doing much more than sitting there in an empty arena makes for even more awkward viewing, but Medvedev’s rise to the top of the game has been a constant exhibition of absurdism, both in his game — he can vary wildly in style, tactics, and performance and that’s from game to game — and personality. It’s been refreshing to have this kind of story now, because it still looks like the chalk is going to be left at the end. Djokovic complained of a foot injury against Fritz, and even wondered if he could make his next match, which he did and saw off without much fuss, sending Milos Raonic home in four sets. Rafael Nadal hasn’t dropped a set yet, and now won’t have to worry about strange women expressing their views in clear fashion toward him with no crowds being allowed. .

The Australian Open 2021 has been presenting fans with a lot of exciting moments as well as scary ones. Day five saw Novak Djokovic battle through a nasty injury to get past his third-round opponent Taylor Fritz. While there’s still uncertainty about the Serbian’s fitness for the remainder of the tournament, his fellow competitors offered their views on the same.  The news about a possible retirement from Novak Djokovic spread like wildfire. He’s the clear favorite to win Australian Open 2021, and a premature exit will go down as a major disappointment.  Stefanos Tsitsipas received a question about Novak Djokovic, and the Greek player expressed his honest opinion about the match. Djokovic took a two-set lead against Fritz after which the injury stuck and forced the 33-year-old to concede a couple and make it a five-setter.  Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 12, 2021 Serbia’s Novak Djokovic receives medical attention during his third round match against Taylor Fritz of the U.S. REUTERS/Kelly Defina“I didn’t watch the match. I think it was too late,” Tsitsipas said. “Bedtime for me. I hear he played really well in the fifth. I don’t have much more information. I heard he was kind of injured. I’m not even sure. It happens to everyone. I don’t know if he is actually injured.” Daniil Medvedev made motivational remarks about Novak Djokovic Novak Djokovic is injured and there’s no hiding it. The Serbian has a match tomorrow against Milos Raonic, but he didn’t train today which was confirmed by his coach Goran Ivanisevic. Furthermore, the abdominal tear might keep him out from the rest of the tournament as well.  While all these possibilities exist, there is still a glimmer of optimism because it’s Novak Djokovic! Everybody has faith in him to endure the challenge and get back to his best, and that includes Daniil Medvedev!  “I definitely, yeah, just saw that he was in pain,” said Medvedev, who mentioned he went to sleep during the fourth set of Djokovic’s match.  Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic during his third round match against Taylor Fritz of the U.S. REUTERS/Kelly Defina“So I was surprised when I saw him winning. That’s why he has 18 Grand Slams. That’s why he’s amazing,” Medvedev praised Djokovic.  However, Daniil Medvedev has no pressure for now as he’s placed in the bottom draw. He won’t face Djokovic anytime soon, until the finals. But Medvedev isn’t happy with the fact that Djokovic is suffering an unfortunate situation at the moment and said that it’s “never good to see a player injured.” An official confirmation on Novak Djokovic’s condition is yet to be released, and his fans will have their fingers crossed. Even Tennis Australia’s chief Craig Tiley is extremely confident about Novak’s resilience to keep going, but only time will tell if Djokovic will continue his hunt for a record-extending ninth Australian Open crown.  Also Read – Naomi Osaka Reveals the ‘Role of Love’ in Tennis at Australian Open 2021

Daniil Medvedev overcame buttock pain and a walk-out by his coach as he withstood a five-set test from Filip Krajinovic at the Australian Open on Saturday.
The fourth seed blew a two-set lead and needed treatment to his left glute before finally moving past the Serb 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 3-6, 6-0 and into the fourth round, extending his win streak to 17.
An agitated Medvedev repeatedly yelled at his box in an empty Rod Laver Arena as he struggled in the fourth set, with coach Gilles Cervara eventually walking out and not returning.
“I don’t know what was going through his head, but at least what he said is that he was sure I’m going to win, and he just wanted to leave me alone to be calm,” said Medvedev.
“Myself, as a human, that’s why we can have, let’s call it, some frustrating moments, both of us, because we both want to win.
“He wants me to win so he felt like that (leaving) was the best thing to do.”
Cervara’s departure seemed to do the trick, with Medvedev racing through the fifth set without losing a game in just 25 minutes to seal the win.
“This time, yeah, for sure it was a good thing to do,” he said of the walk-out, adding that he would sit down with Cervara and discuss the incident. “But there is not a big deal, let’s call it like this.”
He will play Mackenzie McDonald for a berth in the quarterfinals after the unseeded American cruised past South African Lloyd Harris in straight sets.
Medvedev has now gone 17 matches unbeaten, dating back to November and including title wins at the Paris 1000, the ATP Finals in London and the ATP Cup.
He dominated Krajinovic with accurate serves and groundstrokes to take the opening set, then broke him in the sixth game of the second.
But the Serb, a training partner of world number one Novak Djokovic while in Adelaide quarantine ahead of the Australian Open, then made Medvedev sweat.
He forced him to save two break points while serving for the second set then, broke for a 3-1 lead in the third.
The Russian broke back but Krajinovic pounced to break again for the set when Medvedev sent a backhand wide.
Medvedev’s movement appeared impaired in the fourth set and he took a medical time out when 5-2 down.
“Left buttock,” he was heard telling a trainer.
Krajinovic closed out the set, but a revitalized Medvedev broke the Serb three times as he rattled through the fifth set without dropping a game.
Medvedev is bidding a maiden Grand Slam title and to become only the third Russian man to win a major after Yevgeny Kafelnikov and Marat Safin.

FILE – Daniil Medvedev of Russia celebrates winning match point during his Men’s Singles quarterfinal match against Andrey Rublev of Russia on Day Ten of the 2020 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on September 9, 2020 in the Queens borough of New York City. Al Bello/Getty Images/AFP
A relentless Russia crushed Italy 2-0 to win their maiden ATP Cup Sunday with Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev in ruthless, red-hot form leading into the Australian Open.
Russia was the only nation in the 12-team event to boast two top 10 players and they had swept past Japan, Argentina and Germany en route to the decider.
Italy was flattened by the same Russian juggernaut on Rod Laver Arena, with Rublev destroying Fabio Fognini 6-1, 6-2 in just 61 minutes before Medvedev overpowered Matteo Berrettini 6-4, 6-2 in 79 minutes.
“It’s unbelievable,” said Russia captain Evgeny Donskoy.
“If the level is going to be the same, these guys are going to see each other in the (Australian Open) quarter-finals because I saw the draw.”
World number four Medvedev and eighth-ranked Rublev have been the two hottest players on tour since last year’s US Open.
They kick off their Australian Open campaigns on Tuesday and are scheduled to meet in the last eight.
Medvedev is now on a career-long win streak of 14 matches, including his third ATP Masters title in Paris and victory at the season-ending ATP Tour Finals, with 10 of those victories over top 10 opponents.
“It’s a really big achievement … it’s a big boost in confidence,” said Medvedev of his run of wins against top-ranked players.
“Even when you lose, you know that you’re capable of playing this level, and it helps you for the next time to stand up.”
Rublev has been equally impressive, winning five ATP titles in a breakthrough 2020, more than anyone else, as he raced up the rankings.
He ended his season by beating world number three Dominic Thiem at the ATP Finals and has started 2021 with four straight wins at the ATP Cup, dropping just one set, to make him a contender at the Australian Open.
His sizzling form extended to world number 17 Fognini, who went into the match with a 5-1 record against the Russian but was blown away.
Machine-like Medvedev
Rublev dominated with his forehand and lost just seven service points in the entire match.
“I was playing really well all week since the first match and I was just going on court thinking that I needed to fight for every ball,” said Rublev.
“I knew it didn’t matter the score, he always has a chance. He always knows how to come back, so I was trying to keep going no matter the score.”
Medvedev faced a tougher assignment against Berrettini, the world number 10 who has also been in prime early season form, winning all his matches before meeting the Russian, including against world number three Dominic Thiem.
The 24-year-olds had only met once before, in 2018, when Medvedev won, and he took an early break in the opening set to go 3-1 ahead, holding on to serve out the set.
It followed a similar pattern in the second set with the machine-like Medvedev raising his game to another level to grind down Berrettini.
“He’s playing really good. He’s confident, you can tell. He’s a really tough player to beat,” said Berrettini of Medvedev. “These days, you just have to say bravo to him and think about the next matches.”
Serbia beat Spain in the final of the inaugural and hugely popular tournament last year in Sydney — launched as a rival to the Davis Cup.
It has been slimmed down from 24 teams to 12 this year due to the coronavirus over five days at Melbourne Park with $7.5 million at stake, rather than the multi-city format employed in 2020.

Russia enter their first ATP Cup final: World No. 4 Daniil Medvedev outlasted German star Alexander Zverev in a 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 marathon to clinch Russia’s first ATP Cup final berth. With Andrey Rublev taking down Jan-Lennard Struff earlier in the No. 2 singles match, Russia wins the tie and will face Italy for the title.
“We are really happy to get the win, that is the most important,” Medvedev said in his post-match press conference. “Tough matches [for] both of us. Both [Andrey and I] lost the first set. [It was] not easy because we had two days off before the match… But happy we are in the final. That is the most important.”
The reigning ATP Finals champion Medvedev came into the clash trailing Zverev 3-5 in their ATP head to head, but high on confidence after winning the pair’s recent two meetings, including a straight-sets victory en route to the trophy in London.
Playing under the closed roof on Rod Laver Arena, Medvedev had to overcome a slow start as he contended with the German’s booming second serve. Zverev regularly topped the 200 kph mark with his first and second delivery to keep Medvedev on the back foot on Saturday. The Russian had done his scouting and stood deep behind the baseline to handle the returns.
But he could not break through the rock-solid Zverev in the opening set as the German won the three games with an early break. His relentless attack kept Medvedev under pressure, creating a break opportunity in each of the Russian’s first three service games before closing out the opening set.
Zverev continued to make Medvedev come up with an extra shot, earning plenty of unforced errors from the Russian’s racquet in the second set as he took an early lead with a break at 3-2. But Medvedev stayed patient, claiming the next four games to make his way back. Zverev struggled physically as the second set wound to a close, and took a medical time out trailing 3-4 to treat a tight low back.
“When it is against Sascha and you are 6-3, 3-2 break down, many times you are going to lose a match,” Medvedev said. “But I needed to keep my chances alive for the team first of all, for the country. I just tried to stay there, got a bit tight maybe. I just did my job and I am really happy about it.”
Medvedev closed out the second set comfortably, but despite battling lower back discomfort, Zverev dug deep in the decider to extend his stay in the contest. Zverev put in a mammoth effort to keep pace with the Russian player for 10 tightly contested games, but an untimely double fault gave Medvedev the late break at 6-5. The Russian player double faulted twice on match point and had to fight off five break points as Zverev pushed him to the limit, but he prevailed after two hours and 30 minutes to send Russia into the final.
“I was not serving well today, that is why I was in trouble many times,” Medvedev said. “[The] third set was a little bit better. I started to make some big serves in big moments. That was a big key against Sascha. He serves well. If you do not serve well, he is going to return the balls in the court and it is going to be tough.”
Earlier in the day, World No. 8 Rublev responded emphatically after dropping his first set of 2021 ATP Cup to Germany’s No. 2 Struff, rallying to win 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 and giving Russia an early lead in the semi-final tie.
“Andrey is an amazing player,” Medvedev praised. “Last year, what he did [was] something special. Today in the first set, he was not hitting as he can… But he managed to keep his nerves, and that’s what champions do. He managed to get a point for the team so I could [have] it easier.”
Rublev came into the tournament as one of the hottest players on Tour, winning the most titles (five) and joint-most matches (41) last year as he soared into the Top 10 in the FedEx ATP Rankings. He carried that momentum into Melbourne, cruising to victory in his rubbers against Guido Pella of Argentina and Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan to put Russia back into the semi-finals.
He faced his biggest challenge of the tournament against Struff, who amassed three victories in singles and doubles in the group stage. Struff imposed his big-serving game to cool off the Russian’s rhythm, keeping the points short and not allowing his opponent to control the rallies from the baseline. The strategy paid off as a frustrated Rublev served up two double faults in the same game to hand Struff the opening break, and a way to take the opening set.
But Rublev responded by doubling down in his attacking strategy, and he left Struff shell-shocked as he powered his way back into the match with a double break to start the second set. He stayed aggressive, firing 37 winners off both wings as he dropped just three games across the next two sets to take the victory after an hour and 34 minutes.
“In the first set I was really nervous, and plus he was playing really good,” Rublev said in his on-court interview. “He was attacking a lot and he was all over me. I could not answer. And then in the second set, I said, ‘If I am going to play like this, I am going to lose 6-3. 6-3 and that is it.’ So I need to change, go for the shots, start to hit as well. I raised my level, I started to play more aggressive; I started to move better. That was the change.”
Russia ultimately prevailed 2-1 after Germany claimed its only point of the tie in the doubles rubber. Kevin Krawietz and Struff dodged a match tie break to defeat Evgeny Donskoy and Aslan Karatsev 6-3, 7-6(2).
The ATP Cup final between Russia and Italy will begin from 4:00 am IST onward on Sunday.

Daniil Medvedev has got off to a great start to the new season. The 24-year-old has carried his Russian team past the group stage at the ATP Cup 2021 and into the semi-finals. Medvedev is also using this stage to prepare for the Australian Open 2021, where he’s a towering favorite this year. Medvedev capped off a brilliant 2020 season by winning the ATP Finals in London. The Russian utterly dominated the tournament and deserved to win the title honors. The grind keeps going, and Medvedev is now keen on making a mark at the first Grand Slam of the year. Daniil Medvedev refers to Federer and Djokovic as Australian Open maestros Medvedev is yet to win a Grand Slam in his career, but one can be positive about his chances. He came close at the 2019 US Open finals, and the Russian wants to leave a mark at the upcoming ‘Happy Slam.’ However, it isn’t easy for athletes to come from their offseason layoff and immediately play at a Grand Slam. The ATP Cup hasn’t always been there to serve as a warm-up tournament, and Medvedev is aware of the players who’ve dominated the Australian Open with minimal preparation.

You know to come to the first Grand Slam of the year which is the Australian Open, without any matches behind their back and just get into the tournament, and able to win it, like Roger did many times and Novak did a few times also,” Medvedev said. Speaking about the time that he requires, Medvedev said, “I know that I need some matches at the beginning of the year. Even one or two, the more you play, the better. Then it’s enough, you don’t need to play 20 matches to be ready for a Grand Slam.” Daniil Medvedev definitely prefers a good warm-up ahead of a Grand Slam. It would loosen his muscles and help him gain more confidence. The Russian has turned into a big fan of the ATP Cup for that reason and hopes that it flourishes in the years to come.  Also Read – Daniil Medvedev Justifies His Muted Celebration, Says ‘Lot of People Like It, Some of Them Not’
