After Federer and Nadal: Djokovic can also cancel the start in Miami

Medvedev: Djokovic (still) a size too big
It takes two things to catch up: consistently good results on the tour and, if possible, successes in the Grand Slam tournaments. Medvedev has been able to achieve the former in an impressive manner for a long time; he is still missing a major title.

That should change from now on.
Courier sees Medvedev as a “chess player”
It should be enough if Medvedev remains true to his line. The 25-year-old has long since got everything it takes to win a Grand Slam competition and sooner or later to become number one. “Jim Courier once called us a great chess player because he is so tactically positioned on the pitch. That’s also true, Daniil is a very clever player,” says Djokovic.
Clever – and ingenious. “Like his personality, his game is very multifaceted,” explains Medvedev’s coach Gilles Cervara. One of his jobs is to train a genius. “Sometimes you don’t understand geniuses, that’s the way it is. You have to take them for who they are.”
What Cervara usually succeeds in is difficult for many opponents. Because Medvedev does not only live from his outstanding game. No, he provokes, gesticulates, debates – and then usually wins. Many do not like that.
Medvedev on criticism of opponents: “Doesn’t bother me”
The world number two can live well with criticism. “I actually have no idea why the demons come out when I play tennis,” says Medvedev of the part of his nature that blocks his path to becoming the crowd favorite.
In contrast to Djokovic, who has been fighting a difficult battle for the affection of the fans for years, the Russian doesn’t really care how people think of him. That can definitely be an advantage on the way to the top.
