As the tennis season begins to wind down, it seems there is a new name taking the world of tennis by storm, albeit a surname well known to 90’s tennis fans. Daniil Medvedev has been almost unstoppable in recent weeks, and, like his Ukrainian namesake, Andrei, did twenty years ago, has now reached number four in the world rankings, having surged past fellow young-guns Zverev and Tsitsipas, with just Djokovic, Federer and Nadal sitting pretty above him. He has played in more finals than anyone else this season, doing so at his last six tournaments and, since narrowly losing to Nadal in the US Open final last month, the Russian has not dropped a single set in winning two tour titles. Whilst Sir Andy Murray’s tentative but encouraging comeback from his hip operation continues, it is Medvedev who is grabbing the headlines, with the big three looking nervously over their shoulders as he bears down on them. It makes for a mouth-watering 2020.
