Daniil Medvedev underwent surgery and risks missing the Roland Garros tournament
Medvedev, 26, missed the chance to return to the top of the world rankings, when he lost on Thursday to the Polish Hubert Hurkacz at the Miami Open: “In the last months I have had a small hernia,” said Medvedev. “My team and I decided to do a little surgery to solve the problem,” said the US Open 2021 champion.
“I will probably stay away from the field for the next 1-2 months and work hard to get back on the field soon. Thank you for all your support! ”, Added Daniil Medvedev, in a post on social networks.
The Russian can no longer threaten Novak Djokovic as world leader
After being defeated in the quarterfinals of the Miami tournament, Daniil Medvedev was 10 points behind leader Novak Djokovic in the ATP hierarchy: the Serb has 8,420 points and the Russian has accumulated 8,410 points.
Thus, Medvedev did not take advantage of the absence of Novak Djokovic from Miami, “Nole” not being able to enter the US without a vaccination certificate. And it will be impossible for Daniil to overtake Novak in the next period, given that the Russian has had surgery, and Djokovic will return to competitions starting with the Monte Carlo Masters (April 9-17).
