Medvedev is confident that he can defeat Djokovic and Nadal at the Australian Open

Daniil Sergeyevich Medvedev is a professional tennis player from Russia who was born on February 11, 1996. At the moment, he holds the No. 7 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and is the No. 7 singles player in the world. 1 for the entire 16 weeks.

Medvedev has won 15 singles titles on the ATP Tour, including the 2020 ATP Finals and the 2021 US Open. Medvedev prevailed over the then-world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the final to prevent him from winning a Grand Slam.

Despite being outplayed by the Serbian star in Adelaide, Daniil Medvedev still believes he has the tools to defeat the “best in the world” Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open in Melbourne. The Russian, who finished in the bottom half of the last two Australian Opens, lost to Djokovic in the semi-finals of the Adelaide International on Friday night, 6-3, 6-4.

He said he felt “really great” despite the loss and was in a good place for the first Grand Slam of the year after a poor 2022 when he dropped to seventh in the world rankings.

“Novak is a distinct league, with 21 Slams. We only have that to say. But generally optimistic, and I need to maintain my optimism because the first Slam is coming,” he stated following the defeat.
He continued, “You must believe in yourself.” I say that openly prior to each match.

I was able to complete it. I believe I only defeated Rafa once, but I still succeeded. He was a tough opponent for me. I won a Slam against Novak.”

Medvedev has been beaten three times by Djokovic since winning the US Open in 2021. The Serb is back in Australia after missing the Australian Open last year due to his vaccination status.

In an epic final at Melbourne Park last year, Medvedev almost beat Nadal, but he lost in five sets.
Even though Djokovic and Nadal pose a serious threat to Medvedev’s chances of winning a second Grand Slam, the injury of world number one Carlos Alcaraz gave him a boost last week.

The young Spaniard would come back, but the Russian said it was shameful. It’s a shame.
However, he still needs to win 19 slams.
“I’m confident he’s going to return stronger,”
