Towards the end of 2020, there were many uncertainties regarding the 2021 Australian Open. This was due to the coronavirus pandemic which raised questions regarding travel, quarantine, etc. After answering all of those questions, the event is moving forward and Daniil Medvedev was delighted about this.
The Russian is currently on his way to Melbourne to play the event which begins on February 8th. Before he left, he decided to thank the Australian Open organizers for all their hard work in making the event possible. On Twitter, he wrote,
“At the airport. On way to Aussie. Big thanks to @CraigTiley and his team at @TennisAustralia for all the work leading up to this. Grateful we are able to go play. Here we come @AustralianOpen.”
The 2020 tennis season was a mixed one for Daniil Medvedev. He started the year off very poorly but towards the end, he found some form and picked up the Paris Masters and the ATP Finals’ titles. Now, the Russian is looking to carry this form into the 2021 Australian Open.
In previous years, the Russian has not done too well in Melbourne as he only managed to reach the fourth round in 2019 and in 2020. This time, he will surely be looking to reach the latter stages of the event and possibly, win his first Grand Slam there.
This has been his goal for quite a long time and in 2019, he came very close to achieving it as he reached the final of the US Open. Now, with a few titles under his belt, the Russian will be feeling a lot more confident and he could very well be the 2021 Australian Open champion.
