It’s no exaggeration to say that Daniil Medvedev is one of the players to watch out for in the future. The tennis star from Russia won his maiden Grand Slam title at the 2021 US Open.

But that was not the only notable thing about that Slam. There was also the fact he stopped Novak Djokovic from completing a career Grand Slam.

Thus, he announced his arrival in the most spectacular way possible: by beating the world’s top ranked male tennis star.

He had also made it to the final of the 2021 Australian Open, where Djokovic saw him off. So it is safe to say that 2021 was a breakthrough year for Medvedev.
