Daniil Medvedev: Biography, Lifestyle, Lovelife, Net Worth, Career, Endorsements
Daniil Medvedev is determined not to become a one Grand Slam wonder but the former World No 1 already has a career worth celebrating.
Medvedev has been a titlist at every rung of the ATP tournament hierarchy.
His Masters’ victories have all come on hard courts and his sole Grand Slam win to date was at the 2021 US Open.
Medvedev has played just one clay court final in his career, losing to Dominic Thiem in Barcelona in April 2019.
Medvedev became the first man outside of the Big Four to hold the world No 1 ranking since Andy Roddick in February 2004 some 18 years after the American in February 2022.
He is the third Russian man following Yevgeny Kafelniko and Marat Safin, and the 27th man overall to reach the summit of the ATP Rankings.
Medvedev has shown himself to have one of the best backhands on tour and is a noted counterpuncher.
He will often favour giving himself time by staying as deep as he can in the court, but this strategy is arguably why he has struggled on clay and grass.
His clay struggles aside, Medvedev is one of the hardest players to beat on a hard court and has improved on grass although he was denied the chance to play at Wimbledon in 2022 by the ban on Russian and Belarusian players.
