By using the wild card provided to him by the Australian Open 2023 organizers, John Millman defeated Marc-Andrea Huesler in the fifth set to advance to the second round. The Australian is looking forward to this fantastic opportunity to compete against Daniil Medvedev for the first time in his career.

One of the most physically fit and cerebral competitors on the circuit, Millman has already won a number of prominent tournaments on the Tour. It’s impossible to forget his incredible comeback against Roger Federer in the US Open’s round of 16.

The Brisbane player has already upset great tennis players like Hubert Hurkacz and Nick Kyrgios in Grand Slam competitions, and he will exert every effort to defeat the Australian Open finalist from the previous year.

In a press conference, Millman made the following remarks in direct reference to the match he defeated Federer in 2018: “Every tennis player wants to play in these types of matches.

One of the few players I haven’t played against before is him. I enjoy observing him play. When you take on Daniil, you must focus on each issue. He doesn’t give you many freebies, he does an excellent job of covering the field, and he likes to prolong rallies.

The fight will be really difficult. But in the past, I’ve defeated some of the best players. I enjoy competing against them. I am eager to take on this challenge. I adore my country, Australia, and it’s a great place to play tennis. This greatly inspires me.

I constantly work to channel the enthusiasm that the audience has for me. On Court 3, I have many wonderful recollections. When I competed against Gilles Muller, it was one of the highlights of my career. That match gave me the confidence to compete at this level after I won in five sets.

I’m currently worn out, but many Brisbane residents will be in attendance. There were numerous even now. I will always cherish these final moments of my career since they are remarkable.”
