Daniil Medvedev’s comeback on track’ as he confirms next event following injury layoff
Daniil Medvedev will make his return to action at the Geneva Open following his injury-enforced absence with the event set to be his only warm-up tournament ahead of the French Open.
The world No 2 has not played competitive tennis since losing in the quarter-final of the Miami Open in March as he revealed that he is likely to be out of action for one to two months as needed to have a “small procedure done” on his troublesome hernia.
His rehabilitation has gone according to plan and he will be back on court next week at the ATP 250 event in Switzerland after accepting a wildcard entry.
“Comeback on track! 👍” he wrote on Twitter after his entry was confirmed by Geneva Open organisers.

Medvedev will be joined in the main draw by defending champion and world No 7 Casper Ruud while 2021 runner-up Denis Shapovalov and 2020 US Open champion Dominic Thiem will also feature.
The Geneva Open will be Medvedev’s only tournament on clay before the French Open gets underway on March 22.
