For the former #1 scientist, his personal and family life is one of the most important factors for his success. Interesting facts about the development of Daniil Medvedev into a world star.
MUNICH – Daniil Medvedev, born in Moscow on February 11, 1996, celebrated his biggest success yet in the last week of February 2022, when No. 1 appeared in front of his name in the ATP rankings on February 28. Medvedev should be the best player in the world until March 21, 2022, when Novak Djokovic took up the position again. The main reason for Medvedev’s rise was above all to win the US Open 2021 and enter the final of the Australian Open 2022. However, it will take some time before he can fight over the top of the rankings again: to repair the hernia performed at the beginning of April Medvedev will likely be out of surgery for four to eight weeks. So it is doubtful that the US Open champion will be fit for the French Open (May 22-June 5). What has been fixed, however, is that he will not start his third Grand Slam tournament this year: due to the Ukraine war, all Russian and Belarusian players will be disqualified from Wimbledon.
