Glad he made a good decision for himself! Must be tough and disappointing for fans and it being in RussiaRussian News Agency: ¤¤ World No. 4 Daniil Medvedev pulls out of Kremlin Cup.
The Russian tennis star revealed he was drained psychologically and physically after his victorious tournament in Shanghai.¤¤
And would almost guarantee he'll be #1 after Miami20 at worst .The return of the Mad Lad is imminent! Paris Masters starts on Monday. Interesting stat for Mad Lad enthusiasts: if he wins out (5-0 in Paris, 5-0 in London), he'll have a top 5 season of all time in terms of hard court wins in a season. He's 46-9 if you include Davis Cup (45-9 without). Record is 59 in 2006 by Roger Federer and in 2015 by Novak Djokovic.
Yes, his style of play is like a taller Andy Murray who won’t step into the baseline and dictate points. Anyone aggressive on indoors can run him around and hit angles on him.All four on indoor. That has to play into it.
Mecir, aka The Big Cat, would be the closest but he was at least three inches shorter, still quite tall for his era.Was watching this, and it's just crazy that his strength is his speed on the court, not necessarily any of his strokes, like a tall De Minaur:
Have there been any tall players in the past who can move as well as Daniil?
Yes, it can only go so far. Remember when Nalbandian got defaulted when he hit that sign and it accidentally made the line umpire bleed. Not sure why Med didn't get it or did he need to make the umpire bleed first?Med should absolutely have been defaulted for this behavior. The meltdowns among the next gen p-ssies this week have been whiny brat meltdowns. They all need to grow a pair.
Apart from 2nd round, issa tuff draw 4 sureMad Lad's projected AO campaign in 2020:
If his form is similar to Washington through Shanghai,t hen he has a real chance to win this.Mad Lad's projected AO campaign in 2020:
I think there's a decent chance one will lose. Just a gut feeling as obviously it's very difficult to point at one match for a big 3 player and say they're losing here.You think he has a real chance to defeat Nadal and Djokovic back to back? Or are you assuming one or both will lose before meeting Med?
LETS GOOOOOOOAlright Medheads, schedule going forward will be:
02/10 Rotterdam 500
02/17 Marseilles 250
03/09 Indian Wells Masters (2 weeks)
03/23 Miami Masters (2 weeks)
He's only defending 205 total points, while those 4 tournaments represent 2,750 total points. Good chances of moving up in points over the next 2 months.
