Daniil Medvedev benefits from the absence of Novak Djokovic at Indian Wells 2021

Coming to Daniil Medvedev, he is all set to enter the Indian Wells event as the no.1 seed as Novak Djokovic decided to opt out of the tournament. The BNP Paribas Open will not have any player from Big-3 (Djokovic, Nadal, Federer) for the first time since 2000.

MADRID, SPAIN – MAY 05: Tennis players including Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams arrive on court to observe a moment of silence for Brad Drewett during day two of the Mutua Madrid Open tennis tournament at the Caja Magica on May 5, 2013 in Madrid, Spain. He was a former tour player who led the ATP as executive chairman and president since January 2012, died Friday after a battle with motor neurone disease.

While this might be disheartening for fans, there is a huge scope once again for youngsters such as Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev, and others to cash in on the opportunity and make it big at Indian Wells this year.
