Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev has established himself as the most dangerous competitor to Novak Djokovic, in the absence of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
In the US Open final, Medvedev cruelly shattered the dreams of the Serbian tennis player, about uniting the four most important world tennis titles, and now he can end his long reign with the ATP roster.
Djokovic held the world number one title for 341 weeks in a row, and Rossi could ruin this unrealistic streak.
Daniil Medvedev is dangerously close to Novak in the list of the best tennis players, currently trailing by just over 1,000 points (11633 vs 10,575). The Russian tennis player can “erase” this buildup on the Indian Wesley, since Djokovic definitely canceled his participation in this tournament.
If Medvedev manages to reach the trophy in the “California desert”, he will take over the best in the world from our tennis player, but he will only wear this title for a week.
It is about deducting points for Indian Wells two years ago on the first day of November, and then for Shanghai, where the Russian will lose up to 1000 points, and will score 90 and 45 points, respectively, at the expense of tournaments in Vienna and St. Petersburg. This results in a total of minus 10,575. points, which would return Medvedev to second place, with 235 points less than Novak.
Also, on November 8, the points for Paris and London from last year will be erased, which will take Medvedev another 2,000 points, while our tennis player will lose only 400 points.
However, removing the ostracized “aura” of Djokovic at the top of the world for at least seven days is sure, you will at least briefly feel what it means to be world number one.
For something like that, he should first win the next championship in America, and we’ll see if he succeeds.
