Russian tennis star Daniil Medvedev will occupy the ATP men’s tour world number one spot for a second time in 2022 after results went his way at the ongoing French Open.
The 26-year-old finally reached the top of the game at the start of the year when defeated by Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open final.
Yet his reign lasted a mere three weeks after Medevev was defeated by Gael Monfils in the third round at Indian Wells in mid-March and Novak Djokovic reclaimed what was once his following a visa and vaccine scandal Down Under.
Medvedev then headed to the sidelines to undergo surgery to treat a small hernia, but recently took to the courts for the clay court season where the centerpiece is the French Open.
Reaching the quarter-finals at Roland Garros in 2021, Medvedev expressed a desire to return to the top of the pile and has achieved this despite being thrashed in three sets by Marin Cilic in the fourth round on Monday.
