‘No question Daniil Medvedev will be a world number one,’ says former top ten ace
Daniil Medvedev will dominate tennis at some point claims former top ten ace Janko Tipsarevic – if he can improve his clay game.
The Russian finished 2020 in fine form, winning both the Paris Masters and ATP Finals.
And, according to Tipsarevic, it is only a matter of time before Medvedev begins to dominate, although the bar for that has been raised by Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic.
“Medvedev is an amazing player,” Janko Tipsarevic told Sport Klub.
“It is not a question of whether he will win the Grand Slam title, since he will, it is not a question of whether he will be number one – he will at one point.
“Djokovic, Nadal and Federer raised the ladder so much that it is necessary to dominate in relation to the previous generation.”
“Sampras was superior for a very long time, and he collected points on grass and concrete (hard courts).’
“In this era, a player has to be great on all surfaces to dominate, but at the moment I don’t see that Medvedev can make good results on clay due to his style of play.”
