Daniil Medvedev has become the only tennis player to beat Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner & Novak Djokovic at a Grand Slam.

Russian tennis star Daniil Medvedev has stated that he wants to win more Grand Slams and finish his career with no regrets.

The 28-year-old reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon 2024 on Tuesday after he defeated top seed Jannik Sinner in five sets at the Centre Court. It was Medvedev’s seventh win over the Italian tennis star and he currently leads Sinner in their head-to-head record with 7-5.

After the win, Medvedev recalled his previous Grand Slam success and stated that he’s eager to win more Major titles. The Russian tennis star also talked about the 2022 Australian Open final, where he lost against Rafael Nadal despite being two sets up.

He said, “Yeah, look… I don’t think about it too much. For sure I’d love to have six Grand Slams. 10. 26… Whatever, more than Novak. I always try my best. I know against Rafa I could’ve done some shots better and maybe won it. Against Jannik, it was tougher physically. So, I’m a bit less sad about it in a way.”

Medvedev, who has ended as a runner-up in Melbourne three times, stated that it’s better to reach the final than to lose in the initial rounds. He talked about his second-round match against Finland’s Emil Ruusuvuori, which went into five sets.

He added, “It’s always better to be in the final than to lose in the second round. Against Ruusuvuori, I was in big trouble, and I should’ve lost the match. But I managed to win and be in the final. I try my best. I fight my best. Hopefully I can win more Grand Slams. I believe in myself. I believe in my tennis.”

To conclude his statement, the Russian tennis star stated that he believes in himself and wants to retire from tennis without any regrets. However, he’s currently aiming to win his first grass-court Grand Slam. At the Australian Open 2024, Medvedev reached the final but gave away a two-set lead and lost to Sinner.

Medvedev concluded, “For me it’s always important when I finish my career to have no regrets. I did what I did. Whatever titles I have and whatever grand slams.. now it’s over. Now it’s time for something new. I’m happy about my career. For the moment that’s the case.”

Daniil Medvedev will face three-time Grand Slam champion Carlos Alcaraz in the semi-final at Wimbledon 2024 on Thursday.
