Medvedev Win Streak – Can Anyone Stop the Mighty Russian Right Now?

Daniil Medvedev is without question, one of the best hard-court players on tour on his day. He has a fantastic serve, a big forehand, and his defensive skills are second to none too. However, at the back end of the 2022 season and even at the start of the 2023 season, Medvedev looked a little shaky on the court. But since he lost to Korda at the Australian Open, Medvedev has not lost a match – pretty impressive.

At the time of writing, the Russian is on an 11-match win streak, and the hard-court tournaments are still coming. Not only is he on an 11-match win streak, however, but he’s also won two tournaments in a row. These included the Rotterdam 500 event plus the Doha 250 event. And in winning these tournaments, Medvedev has pulled his ranking back up to number 7 in the world.

Daniil Medvedev win streak

This is more like the kind of form that we’ve come to expect from Daniil Medvedev in recent years, especially since he is a Grand Slam champion and a former world number 1. So, with that in mind, the question that everyone asks when somebody gets on a roll is whether anyone can stop them and when their run might end. Therefore, I’d like to share my two cents on this topic right now.

Daniil Medvedev Win Streak: 11 Matches and Counting – Where Will It End?

I always get excited when any individual goes on a big win streak. I felt the same way about Nadal’s run at the start of 2022, and about Iga Swiatek’s run in 2022 as well. Yet now, it’s Medvedev’s turn to try and push the boundaries in the win streak department. As for how much longer this win streak could continue, here are my thoughts:

Most Likely – Semi-final Loss to Djokovic in Dubai

At the moment, Daniil Medvedev is competing in the ATP 500 event in Dubai. He is currently in the quarter-finals, and he is set to play against Borna Coric for a spot in the semi-finals. Assuming he beats Coric in the game later today, which is pretty likely, he will move to 12 matches won in a row. 

Yet this is where he will likely face Novak Djokovic, assuming the Serbian beats Hurkacz in his own quarter-final match. In my opinion, despite how well he is playing, I feel that Medvedev will lose to Novak Djokovic in this clash, assuming it happens.

Failing That – 15-20+ Wins Likely

If I’m wrong, and Daniil Medvedev goes on to beat Novak Djokovic in this semi-final match, I feel he will then win the tournament. That’s because the other biggest threats in the draw include Rublev and Zverev, two guys that Medvedev usually does pretty well against. So once again, if he does squeeze past Novak Djokovic, there is every chance that he will capture his third title in a row.

And from here, the ATP Tour moves to the states for the two hard court 1000 events – Indian Wells and Miami. If Medvedev was to win Dubai this week, his confidence going into these events would be incredible, which is why the winning streak could extend beyond 20.
