Daniil Medvedev is going through a period of extraordinary form. After Rotterdam, Doha, Dubai, the Russian also conquers Miami. An incredible moment for him, which brings him closer to the form that just two years ago made him climb to the top step of the ranking.
His results on hard are of absolute prestige. Cincinnati, Shanghai, Paris Bercy, Roger Cup and of course the US Open, are all his most prestigious tournaments achieved on this surface. With the trophy won in Florida Daniil has risen to 5 in the Masters 1000 category, a result that brings him closer to several superstar of the Game.
The Russian tennis player got into a small circle of players who won 5 different tournaments belonging to this category. Medvedev is in the company of Marcelo Rios and Pete Sampras. At 7 we find 4 absolute tennis legends, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Roger Federer and Andre Agassi.
Number one in this special ranking Novak Djokovic who did en plein. The Serbian is in fact the only tennis player in history to have won once (in his case twice) at least once all the Masters 1000 tournaments. An extraordinary result that further validates the path Medvedev has been taking in recent years.

Going through another curious statistic, let’s see how the Russian has, during his career, won 19 ATP titles, all different from each other.
In addition to the aforementioned tournaments, the former world number one has also won Sydney, Winston-Salem, Tokyo, Sofia, St. Petersburg, Atp Finals, Marseille, Mallorca, Los Cabos, Vienna. Medvedev, first in the race towards the November Finals in Turin, is a candidate as one of the serious pretenders to contend with Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz, the scepter of number one in the world at the end of the year.
To give himself a chance, the Russian will have to try to find a feeling even on clay, a surface on which he has never yet won a tournament. Monte-Carlo will get underway next Monday and Daniil wants to continue his magic moment on clay as well.
