World number two tennis player Daniil Medvedev can currently be recognized as one of the strongest athletes on the current circuit. During these months we have seen him achieve great victories and often be the protagonist, he won the Paris Bercy tournaments and the ATP Finals, he dragged Russia to the victory of the ATP Cup and at the Australian Open he was stopped only by the 18 times winner by Slam Novak Djokovic.
In the last week Daniil Medvedev was the negative protagonist of the Miami Masters 1000 tournament. The number two in the world was the main favorite given the absences of the Big Three and the Austrian Dominic Thiem, but he went out in the quarter-finals against the Spanish tennis player Roberto Bautista Agut.
The latter was then the protagonist of a great match against Jannik Sinner, eliminated only after a great battle from the blue. Medvedev is one of the best athletes on the circuit, but he is characterized by a detail that has not gone unnoticed.
The players that Daniil Medvedev suffers
There are some players on the ATP Tour that Daniil Medvedev suffers particularly. The figure is probably forced perhaps by the previous ones on earth, a surface where the Russian has never shone, and by the fact that a few years ago Medvedev was not at all the current one, but there is a curiosity about 5 tennis players: these 5 athletes are those that Daniil Medvedev has never beaten in the course of his career.
Among them there is precisely Roberto Bautista Agut with whom the Russian is 0-3 in the previous, but not only. Medvedev is 2 on 2 in the precedents against Nick Kyrgios and the Argentine Guido Pella (here past precedents and on clay affect) while he is 3 defeats on as many precedents against Bautista Agut, against the French Gilles Simon and against the tennis legend Roger Federer.
Medvedev and Federer have not faced each other since 2018, he was another Medvedev and certainly another Roger Federer, younger than the tennis player now close to turning 40 in the circuit. The matches were held on hard courts, the last one in the Miami Open Round of 16 where Roger controlled the game without worries and won a clear victory with the result of 6-4; 6-2.
Here is the statistic regarding the talented Russian champion:
