Daniil Medvedev does not hide, not even at the press conference. In front of the media, after winning his third consecutive title on the ATP Tour, the Russian talked about the young tennis player who can repeat a career similar to the Big Three (Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer), or at least comparable to one of the three great tennis monsters of the last twenty years.
The native of Moscow said: "I bet on Carlos Alcaraz, because he has broken precocity records that seemed insurmountable, like being the youngest world number 1 in history" is what the winner of the ATP 500 in Dubai underlined.
Then he continued, praising the Spanish's skills: "The way he hits the ball is pure talent. There are things in your tennis that cannot be trained, either you have it or you don't, like that power in the thrust. He can win many things but we have also seen that he can lose matches and get injured regularly." The Russian also declared how the Danish Holger Rune is a step behind the native of Murcia: "You never know how a career can develop," he concluded.
Medvedev i come back to success
Rotterdam, a tournament in which he rediscovered the best level of his game, Doha and Dubai: there are three consecutive competitions won by Medvedev on hard courts. Now the native of Moscow will try to confirm the trend in the first two Masters 1000 of the season (Indian Wells and Miami).
Daniil will have an opportunity to obtain other important points in terms of ranking to climb further positions. Current number 6 in the world, the Russian can overtake his compatriot Andrey Rublev already in the first event 1000 and return to the top 5 of the standings.
Daniil will now have to wait for the Indian Wells main draw draw to find out what path awaits him this week. Now Medvedev and Alcaraz will be among the most awaited superstar at the ATP Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and Miami, especially after the absences of Nadal and Djokovic.
