In the 2020 season, besides Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, the name of Daniil Medvedev was heard too. Especially towards the end of the season, Daniil won the last two tournaments which were up for grabs- the Rolex Paris Masters and one of the best-conducted tournaments, the ATP Finals.

As we’re well aware, the tennis season goes on till the end of November. Usually, the Australian Open is held around the middle of January. This year, it has been slightly delayed due to the pandemic and its effects. In normal circumstances, players get just one month to regroup and prepare themselves for the next season. However, this year there have been slight shifts in the calendar.

The Russian, Daniil Medvedev, has already begun his preparations and looks certain to carry his impressive form into the next season in 2021. He recently gave a glimpse on social media accounts of him practicing. It’s nice to see that after ending the year on a high note, he still remains focused on his routine. 

Daniil has been known to bring his best tennis on a hard court. His impressive runs in the past at the US Open and the ATP Finals is what speaks volumes for him. However, the Russian has not lived up to his ability when it comes to the Australian Open. Considering that he’s only managed to reach the fourth round, he surely has not entirely lived up to his potential.
