Medvedev 2023 Win Streak – Where Does It Rank?

Of all the top ATP players who are competing at the moment, it’s Daniil Medvedev that is showing the best form. But as you may remember, the season didn’t start all that well for the Russian. Medvedev made the semi-finals of the Adelaide International prior to the 2023 Australian Open before losing to Djokovic. He then failed to perform too well at the first Grand Slam of the year by losing in the third round to Korda. However, since then he has quite literally been flawless.

Medvedev traveled to Rotterdam following the Australian Open, and this is where the magic started. He won the Rotterdam indoor event, which was a 500-level tournament, beating Sinner in the final. After that, Medvedev was involved in the 250-level event in Doha, which he also won. But this time around, he beat Andy Murray in the final. Yet Medvedev clearly wasn’t satisfied with back-to-back titles.

He followed the title in Doha by putting together an incredible run in Dubai (500-level), where he then reversed his loss to Djokovic back in January. Ultimately, he beat Djokovic in the semi-final and then his good friend Andrey Rublev in the final. Most impressively of all, Medvedev didn’t lose a set in Doha or Dubai, despite competing against the best guys in the world.

And at the time of writing, Medvedev has officially won 18 straight matches on the ATP Tour. However, the discussion I want to address today isn’t how far this streak might go, but where his streak ranks in history. So on that note, let me reveal the answer.

The Medvedev Win Streak – Not Even Top 10

Before I run through this answer, I’d like to state that this answer takes nothing away from what Medvedev is currently achieving. The man is playing sublime tennis, and it’s truly a joy to watch. However, as things stand, this 18-match win streak isn’t even inside the top 10 of all time. This is a testament to how strong men’s tennis has been over the last few decades. But who are the guys that have put together longer streaks than Medvedev?

Number One: Novak Djokovic 2010/2011 – 43 Matches

Standing above them all, it’s Novak Djokovic who has the longest win streak of all time. Back in 2010/2011, Novak Djokovic was pretty much unbeatable. And it wasn’t until the 2011 French Open that he was beaten by Roger Federer when the streak ended.

Number Two: Roger Federer 2006/2007 – 41 Matches

Before Novak Djokovic really burst through as one of the greats, it was still Federer and Nadal who dominated most tournaments. And in 2006/2007, Roger Federer put together a string of 41 match wins in a row. Most people thought that would never be beaten, but Djokovic clearly had other ideas.

Number Three: Roger Federer & Thomas Muster (2005 and 1995) – 35 Matches

The legend that is Roger Federer features again here with the joint third-best win streak of all time. However, he has some company here in the form of Thomas Muster, who also won 35 straight games back in 1995! So to conclude, with Medvedev on 18 wins in a row right now, it’s going to take a few more before he catches these guys.
