The President of the Russian Tennis Federation Shamil Tarpishchev, in a conversation with a SE correspondent, spoke about the prospects for Daniil Medvedev.
“Earth season is coming soon. I think before the “Roland Garros” he has little threat. And then everything will depend on how he plays at the Grand Slam. And it’s not the best cover for him.
And if Danya successfully plays at Roland Garros, he will be the first before the end of the year. Undoubtedly, Medvedev will be longer in the first line than Kafelnikov and Safin. And if he leaves the first line, he will quickly return»– said Tarpishchev “SE”.
Daniil Medvedev became the first racket of the world, displacing Novak Djokovic to second place. The Russian currently has 8615 points, the Serb has 8465 points.
