Daniil Medvedev Notices Strange Stat, Now Roots For Novak Djokovic To Stay No 1

Daniil Medvedev notices strange stat, now backs Novak Djokovic to stay No. 1

Daniil Medvedev jokingly commented that he is rooting for Novak Djokovic to stay in the number 1 spot for as long as possible. On Friday, Medvedev defeated Djokovic 6-4 6-4 in the Dubai semifinal. After the match, Medvedev noted a strange stat: he is 5-3 against Djokovic in his matches when the Serb is ranked No. 1.

In those matches where Djokovic was not ranked No. 1, Medvedev is 0-6. Overall, Djokovic owns a 9-5 head-to-head against Medvedev. «Actually, I saw crazy: I’m 5-3 against Novak when he’s number 1. I’m 0-6 when he’s not number one.

1. I’m like, stay at number 1 for as long as you can. If I can play with you when you are number 1, it will be better,» Medvedev said, according to sportskeeda.

Medvedev has rediscovered his best tennis

In the last three weeks, Medvedev has won the same number of titles: the Russian has gone as far as Rotterdam, Doha and Dubai.

In mid-February, Medvedev defeated world number 9 Felix Auger-Aliassime in Rotterdam. At the time, it was Medvedev’s first top-10 win in more than a year, as he ended his nine-game losing streak against top-10 players. «I knew I wouldn’t win for a long time.

I think, if I’m not mistaken, after Rafa’s loss, I didn’t win against the top 10 players. I knew he was capable of doing it because there was a stretch when he was on a 20-fight win streak. I won like 12 times in a row against the top 10. He knew he was capable of doing this.

So these statistics, they don’t enter my mind. When you can change the stat, that’s good,» Medvedev said. After beating Andrey Rublev 6-2 6-2 in the Dubai final, Medvedev recently described his form as «at the highest level.» «The way I played these three tournaments was top notch.

Especially Dubai was probably the best of the three. I was really playing well. Once again getting past Novak and Andrey, the scoring that I managed to do, the confidence that I managed to do it, it was unbelievable. So right now I feel amazing,» Medvedev explained. Medvedev is now playing in the Indian Wells Masters.
