Daniil Sergeyevich Medvedev (Russian: Дании́л Серге́евич Медве́дев, pronounced [dənʲɪˈiɫ mʲɪdˈvʲedʲɪf]; born 11 February 1996) is a Russian tennis player. He has won 3 ATP singles titles. Medvedev has a career high ATP singles ranking of 21 first achieved on 15 October 2018. He also has a career high ATP doubles ranking of 265 achieved on 18 September 2017.

Career[edit]

Early pro career[edit]

Medvedev made his ATP main draw debut at the 2015 Kremlin Cup, partnering Aslan Karatsev in the doubles event.

As a qualifier, Medvedev made his ATP singles main draw debut at the 2016 Nice Open, lost to Guido Pella in three sets. Three weeks later he earned his first singles ATP World Tour win at the 2016 Ricoh Open, defeating Horacio Zeballos in straight sets.

2017: First ATP final and first Grand Slam match win[edit]

In January 2017, Medvedev reached his first ATP singles final. In the final at the Chennai Open he lost to Roberto Bautista Agut in two sets. As a result, Medvedev jumped 34 positions from 99 to 65 in the ATP rankings, a new career-high. In February, he continued his good form when advancing to quarterfinals of the Open Sud de France and the Open 13, losing to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Lucas Pouille respectively.

In June, he made it to the quarterfinals of the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships defeating the 6th seed, Robin Haase, and Thanasi Kokkinakis before losing to Ivo Karlović in straight sets. In the Aegon Championships, he advanced to his first ATP 500 quarterfinal by beating Nicolas Mahut and Thanasi Kokkinakis in the first 2 rounds, then he lost to the No. 6 seed Grigor Dimitrov in the quarterfinals. One week later, he kept up his good form on grass by advancing to the semi-final of Eastbourne International before losing to Novak Djokovic.

At Wimbledon he got his first Grand Slam victory by defeating 5th seed and world No. 3 Stan Wawrinka in the first round in four sets. This result was notable as it prevented Wawrinka from completing his career Grand Slam set (i.e. winning each of the four Grand Slam tournaments).[1] He subsequently lost in the next round to Ruben Bemelmans.[2] Medvedev was handed three fines totalling $14,500 (£11,200) for his conduct during the match with Bemelmans; Medvedev was fined a total of $7,000 for insulting the umpire on two occasions and a further $7,500 for throwing coins under the umpire's chair.[3]

2018: Career best year[edit]

Medvedev started the 2018 season by qualifying for the Sydney International. He reached the final which he won against Alex de Minaur. The final became the "youngest" since 2007, when 20-years old Rafael Nadal defeated 19-years old Novak Djokovic in the final of Indian Wells. It also became the tournament's youngest since 1989.[4]

Medvedev later reached the quarterfinals of the Rotterdam Open, losing to Andreas Seppi in three sets.

In August, he won his second ATP title at the 2018 Winston-Salem Open after defeating the home favorite Steve Johnson in straight sets. After losing to Borna Ćorić in the third round of the US Open, he went on to win his first ATP 500 and third ATP title in Tokyo as a qualifier, overcoming Japanese star and No. 3 seeded Kei Nishikori 6–2, 6–4 in the final match. This triumph brought him to a new career high ranking of No. 22 and made him become the No. 1 player in Russia.
