Boris Becker: ‘I am convinced Daniil Medvedev will win more Grand Slams’
Boris Becker has predicted Daniil Medvedev will become a multiple Grand Sam champions after he won his first at the US Open.
Medvedev beat Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 in New York to crush the Serbian’s hopes of completing the calendar Grand Slam.
Djokovic was short of his best as it grew obvious he was struggling to deal with the pressure, and he himself confessed Medvedev deserved to win the match.
That view is shared by Eurosport expert Becker, who was once Djokovic’s coach, and he says it should just be the start for the Russian.
“Daniil Medvedev deserved to win today, deserved to win the tournament,” Becker said.
“He was the best player over these two weeks and only lost one set in total on the way to his first Grand Slam.
“I am convinced that Daniil will win more Grand Slam tournaments.
“For me, he is the most ready of the young generation. He knows how to win matches, he knows how to prepare for the big matches.
“You have to beat him then because he doesn’t get hectic or nervous. He’s one step ahead of [Stefanos] Tsitsipas or [Alexander] Zverev there.”
