“Rafael Nadal will be number one,” said Daniil Medvedev.

Tennis star Daniil Medvedev from Russia does not have an easy year in 2022. Daniil became the top player due to Novak Djokovic‘s struggles, but his season was incredibly difficult and he was unable to win at the highest levels.

The Russian athlete’s expulsion from Wimbledon was a setback, but the player is now prepared to depart. In anticipation of the Los Cabos tournament, where he will attempt to resume his winning ways, Medvedev addressed the ATP website’s microphones.

These are his assertions: “Who is first? I will do everything I can to defend the championship, but it also depends on others. Because of this, I think Rafael Nadal will be ranked first in the world at the conclusion of the year if he wins all the remaining tournaments.

Since I have always performed well in North America, I will aim to maintain it for a considerable amount of time.” The Russian tennis star recently broke the records of well-known countrymen like Marat Safin and Yevgeny Kafelnikov, who never achieved 10 weeks at the top of the rankings, by reaching the eleventh week as the number one player in the world.

The return of Daniil Medvedev and the court

The following statements were made by the Russian tennis star as he discussed his extended absence. Since the competition in Mallorca, Medvedev has not competed “Everything is difficult to say.

It varies every time, but winning games is undoubtedly crucial to me right now.” The Australian tennis player Rinky Hijikata will be Medvedev’s opponent in the second round (the Russian got the Bye). Without naming him, Medvedev said of the following opponent, against whom the first round match was played at night, “Each opponent can be very difficult, so I can say that the more matches you win and the more confidence you can gain, the better you start to feel your game, and this is what I will try to do in the Los Cabos tournament.”

In front of competitors like Felix Auger Aliassime and Cameron Norrie, Medvedev will attempt to win the championship in the North American competition.
