Medvedev at the US Open

“Only good things ahead” Motivated Medvedev eyes strong finish to season

Daniil Medvedev has revealed that he is “really motivated” to put recent poor results behind him, and finish the season strongly.

The world number 6 has suffered a run of below par results in recent weeks, winning just one match in his previous three events. But with a total of 3,000 ATP ranking points on offer in the final three tournaments of the season, Medvedev remains as motivated as ever to end the year on a high.

Speaking to, the US Open finalist was candid in his ambitions for the rest of the season – “I am really motivated. There are only big points left… only good things ahead, so I am really motivated to just be good, practise good and play good”.

Having followed up his run to the US Open final in 2019 with another impressive semi-final finish, Medvedev’s form has since dramatically tailed off. But back on the indoor hard courts, the young Russian is relishing the challenge of Vienna. ““The tournament here in Vienna is actually really strong.. and if I manage to meet Dominic there, it will hopefully be a great match to watch”.

The two most recently met in the US Open semi-finals, with Thiem winning in straight sets en route to his maiden Grand Slam title.
