Miami – Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev lost the quarterfinals of the tournament in Miami to defending champion Hubert Hurkacz and will not return to the top of the world rankings. He lost to his Polish opponent 6: 7, 3: 6, so he will stay behind the star Serb Novak Djokovic in Monday’s ATP standings.
Twenty-six-year-old Medvedev sat on the tennis throne a month ago, but after three weeks he had to leave it to Djokovic again. The Serb decided not to start in Florida due to coronavirus restrictions and preferred time with his family.
The native of Moscow lost against Hurkacz from the beginning. At 2: 5, he deflected two sets, but he did not save the first set and lost in a tie-break 7: 9. In the middle of the second set, he requested a short medical break and no longer bothered the world top ten. The Polish tennis player kept the chance for the second trophy from the Masters, equalized the mutual balance to 2: 2.
“The key was definitely a return. I was also successful in forehands. I spent a lot of time in Florida and I’m used to the conditions here, maybe that was my advantage today,” Hurkacz said. His opponent, the winner of last year’s US Open, held his stomach in a meeting with doctors, according to Reuters he was dizzy.
