Daniil Medvedev acknowledges that his goal for 2023 is to get back to producing impressive Grand Slam and Masters results. Since squandering a two-set lead in the 2022 Australian Open, Medvedev, the 2021 US Open champion, has struggled on the grandest stage.

Most recently, Sebastian Korda shocked Medvedev in the third round of the Australian Open. In the previous two weeks, Medvedev won consecutive championships in Rotterdam and Doha. Although pleased with his recent success, Medvedev pointed out that he also needs to be having those kinds of runs at the Grand Slam and Masters levels.

“to continue playing tennis the way I’m doing it right now. I’m overjoyed. 2 finals. Naturally, I want to perform better than I did in the 1000s and Grand Slams last year. But it’s challenging. Try to play well since everyone you meet will strive to defeat you.

They begin to learn how to manipulate you. As a result, you must constantly evolve and try to adapt. So my objective is to play at my best, which I was, for whatever reason, occasionally unable to accomplish last year. I know that when I play at my best, I’m dangerous to everyone, and that’s when I can achieve success “As quoted by Sportskeeda, Medvedev.

On his preferred Grand Slam, Medvedev

Medvedev competed in his first Grand Slam final of the year at the US Open, where he also won his first Major championship. Medvedev has finished second twice at the Australian Open after losing consecutive final matches at Melbourne Park in 2021 and 2022.

Medvedev acknowledged that the US Open is perhaps the Grand Slam that best fits his style of play, but he refrained from designating it as his favorite Major. “I don’t really know what my favorite slam is when people ask me. Although I did win the US Open, I can’t exactly say that it’s my favorite grand slam.

I enjoy them all. All of them are fun to play. I want everyone of them to produce significant outcomes. In terms of my game, I believe the US Open suits me the best, but hey, every year the balls and surfaces change, so I never know what I’m going to say when I’m 35 “Medvedev said.
