We all know about Rafael Nadal – greatest ever clay-court player, 18 grand slams, three of which were won in New York, displays many traits of OCD while on court etc, etc – but what do we know about Daniil Medvedev?  Here’s a quickfire overview of the Russian… He’s recorded the most number of victories

We all know about Rafael Nadal – greatest ever clay-court player, 18 grand slams, three of which were won in New York, displays many traits of OCD while on court etc, etc – but what do we know about Daniil Medvedev? 

Here’s a quickfire overview of the Russian…

He’s recorded the most number of victories on tour this year, he arrived at Flushing Meadows on the back of four straight finals on the American hard-court swing, is not afraid to goad the US crowd (brave boy, we say…) and has reached a career high of No. 5 in the world rankings. All this by the time he’s 23, impressive. 

Oh, and before arriving in New York his best performance in a Grand Slam was reaching the fourth round at this year’s Australian Open. 

If you want greater detail – understandable if  you do – then read Simon Briggs’ good piece revealing how Medvedev made it to his first grand slam final…
