Daniil Medvedev is part of that group of tennis players who will try to stop the unstoppable Novak Djokovic, in 2024. It was the Russian tennis player himself, in an interview with The National News, who said how he and the young tennis stars Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner will try to do everything to block the Serbian champion, who, in 2023, has shown himself to be almost completely invincible.

"Everyone will have a different motivation for different reasons. I think I've changed. I'm no longer 23 and I'm not looking for my first big title. I hope I can last this phase of my career for a long time. I'm motivated and I want to continue exploring my limits to overcome them.

I try to be more and more professional to improve on the pitch. At the end of last season I was mentally tired, so I hope to do better next year. Each season can be different. Stefanos Tsitsipas, for example, reached the final at the Australian Open and then, for various reasons, experienced a complicated season.

But he can come back and overcome Djokovic, Alcaraz, Sinner and me. Last year I found myself outside the Top-10. The only thing we are sure of is that Novak is always there. I hope to be part, together with the other two or three, of the group of guys who will try to stop him," explained the Russian.​

Medvedev will try to compete to win the most important title, in 2024

Daniil Medvedev will also try to fight to win the most important titles of the 2024 tennis season.

The Russian did not start off on the right foot in 2023 and, after his premature elimination at the Australian Open, found himself outside the Top-10. Precisely in one of the most complicated moments, however, the Moscow native reacted and won three consecutive tournaments between Rotterdam and Dubai. Medvedev then stopped in the final at Indian Wells, but won the ATP Masters 1000 in Miami, beating Jannik Sinner.
