“Medvedev is already closer to veterans than to rising tennis stars” – Yanchuk

“Medvedev is already closer to veterans than to rising tennis stars” – Yanchuk

Honored coach of Russia Viktor Yanchuk assessed the current form of the Russian tennis player Daniel Medvedev .

On Monday, Medvedev defeated Portugal’s Nuno Borges in the first round of the ATP 500 tournament in Halle, Germany.

— It is difficult to say what is the reason for Medvedev’s long streak without winning tournaments. In most losing matches, Danya is inferior in combat. After all, he is among the top 5 tennis players in the world rankings, his opponents take him more seriously, everyone tries to give him a fight.

The form Medvedev is in is also of great importance. But it is also worth noting that today the competition on the circuit has increased significantly. And time is no longer on Danya’s side. Medvedev is already closer to veterans than to rising stars. He must therefore give the best of himself in every match.

Another reason could be that Medvedev has been well studied by his rivals over all these years. Now, it’s worth noting that Dana sometimes lacks the pace of play of Alcaraz or Rune. These are faster, more rhythmic players who dictate their tennis.

Medvedev, on the other hand, is used to playing at a longer distance, his shots are not as sharp as those of his opponents, but Danya tries to take them reliably and versatile. Medvedev scores more points thanks to his opponents’ mistakes than thanks to his winning plays. He is now trying to diversify his game. I think Medvedev’s time will come this year. There is still more than half of the season left and, as we know, Danya shows her best game on hard court, not on clay or grass.

But Medvedev still remains a competitive athlete and a contender for victory in every tournament he participates in. I think Dana needs to feel the taste of victory at least in some tournaments in order to end this streak of failures without a title and continue moving forward,” Legalbet quotes Yanchuk.

Medvedev is world number five. In the next round of the Halle tournament, he will face the Chinese Zhang Chichen.
