Three weeks ago, Daniil Medvedev had been tested positive for Coronavirus, so he took his time staying healthy until he has fully recovered from the virus. Currently, he is bound to compete at the Mutua Madrid Open with the hopes of winning a title. He has been open to sharing his journey during his Covid scare.
When asked about his Covid experience and recovery, he said that he’s feeling fit, otherwise, he would not be coming to Madrid. He had experienced symptoms like blocked nose and throat and physical weakness, but nothing more than these. Without any practice for almost a week, especially the need to rest to recover, made it challenging for him to return to shape.
He is officially ready to take action for a doubles match alongside Marcelo Demoliner to compete against Daniel Evans and Neil Skupski. Now that he’s back in action, he still preferred to play on a different surface. As a former ATP Finals champion and finalist at the US Open, he is bound to win a title on a challenging clay court.
It is noted that Medvedev had defeated Novak Djokovic in 2019 at the Monte Carlo semi-finals, and he said that he needed to knit his confidence together because he can beat good tennis players. However, he finds it tougher to play on clay than on hard courts.
Daniil Medvedev is currently World No. 3, and his goal for the Madrid Open is to at least win one match.
