With five titles to his name in 2023, has struggled to live up to his billing. Only at Wimbledon has he proven his credentials and that run ended in a semi-final heartache. Medvedev would want to give a good account of his abilities in the final Grand Slam of the year but his preparations have not been the best.

He reached the quarter-final of the Canadian Open but could not get past Alex de Minaur. In the Western & Southern Open, he struggled to impress and was knocked out by the in-form Alexander Zverev.

Megamind’s next port of call will be in New York. The 2021 US Open champion could only reach the fourth round during his title defence. The marker is not on his back anymore but expectations remain high after a season of five successive finals and a clay court ATP Masters title.

Carlos Alcaraz did not disappoint in the semi-final meeting with Medvedev, it was just that Megamind was just too good. The young Spaniard found it difficult to get rid of him as the Octopus’s arms reached everywhere. The US Open final will now be a repeat of the 2021 edition and Medvedev will hope that he gives another 12/10 performance against the Serbian legend.

It will not be an easy task as Novak has been on an unbelievable run. The Djoker has improved with every outing despite starting his adventures slowly. He has now reached the final in all four Grand Slams, etching his name in the annals of history. Djokovic can make more history by claiming his fourth US Open title, avenging his defeat in the 2021 showpiece event.

It has been a year to remember for Medvedev, one in which he has broken records and etched his name into the annals of tennis history. It all began in Adelaide 1, where he kickstarted the 2023 campaign with a run to the semi-finals. Novak Djokovic ended his run at the event and he could only make it to the third round of the Australian Open.

However, what followed next was unbelievable for Megamind himself. Medvedev claimed three titles in succession. Jannik Sinner’s ambitions were thwarted in Rotterdam, Andy Murray’s hopes dashed in Doha, and Andrey Rublev thrashed in Dubai. Only a sensational performance by Carlos Alcaraz brought an end to his 19-match winning streak in the final of Indian Wells.

The Russian would not be stopped and he picked up where he left off in Miami. Sinner was at the wrong end of another beatdown as Medvedev made history by reaching five successive finals. Only a switch of a surface from hard courts to clay saw that run come to a conclusion.

Holger Rune defeated him in the quarter-finals of Monte Carlo in his first outing on the European clay court swing. Compatriot Aslan Karatsev then knocked him out of the Madrid Masters. Not to be undone, the 27-year-old returned to winning form in Rome, where he claimed the Italian Open to end his clay court jinx. It was marked by a memorable dance as he rub salt in the wounds of Rune in the final.

In Rafael Nadal’s absence, he had high hopes for Roland Garros but they were thwarted by Thiago Seyboth Wild. It marked a successful clay court campaign and Medvedev readied himself for Wimbledon assault. It did not go according to the plan as Adrian Mannarino removed him from Hertogenbosch in the second round.

A quarter-final appearance in Halle steadied his fans’ nerves and patience proved to be a virtue at the All England Club. Medvedev reached the semi-final, defeating Mannarino in the process to set up a meeting with Alcaraz. Victory over the Spaniard proved to be elusive as a comprehensive defeat followed, with the Russian left licking his wounds.

With the North American hard court swing next, Medvedev started brightly. He reached the quarter-finals at the Canadian Open. After making quick work of Italian duo, Matteo Arnaldi and Lorenzo Musetti, he was ousted by Alex de Minaur in the quarter-finals. The straight-set defeat would have been difficult to digest as both sets were too close to call but finished in the Australian’s favour.

His final stop before the US Open was in Cincinnati. Musetti again succumbed to his baseline game but Alexander Zverev was better prepared for him. The rejuvenated German dug deep and avenged his three defeats earlier in the 2023 campaign. The Moscow native did not give up easily and Sascha needed a deciding set to triumph.
