Is Novak unstoppable?

Regarding the Serbian’s Number One position in the future, Medvedev conveyed in a post-match interview,

“First of all, it’s an unbelievable achievement. For sure I think in the world of tennis we talk about Grand Slams more than anything else. But this is also a small competition, [and] I’m sure he’s really happy about it. The way he’s played, he’s definitely capable of catching 400 weeks. We’re going to try to not let him do this.” 

The big 3 are huge in the tennis world, Medvedev thinks

The Big 3 of the tennis world share a total of 58 major trophies between them, winning 14 of the last 15 Grand Slams. Regarding the context, the 25-years-old further asserted, “They are just different. Their Grand Slam achievements are crazy. I do not know how they were able to win so much. After their retirement I would like to ask them what went through their mind and how they prepare.”

Medvedev who recently lost to world number one Novak Djokovic by 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 in the Australian Open Final, will see himself jump one spot up to the second position in the ATP world ranking by surpassing Rafael Nadal.

The increase in rank is expected to come after the Russian manages to win the ongoing ATP 250 event taking place in Marseille, France.
