Daniil Medvedev & Rafael Nadal

Daniil Medvedev’s 2020 started badly, because the Russian was considered the third favorite at the Australian Open after Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. Daniil lost in the round of 16 against Stan Wawrinka and also in Rotterdam confirmed that he was not at 100% losing to Vasek Pospisil in two sets.

He has a career-high ATP singles ranking of world No. 4, achieved on 9 September 2019. He has won seven ATP singles titles, including two Masters 1000 titles. Medvedev achieved a breakthrough in 2019, when he reached six consecutive tournament finals, including one at the 2019 US Open and three at Masters 1000 events.

Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal

In a recent interview with Marca, the Russian explained the reasons for Rafael Nadal’s domination on clay: “Yes, it is true that Rafa has an advantage called Roland Garros. You can keep winning there if your injuries are kind.

You never know when they can arrive and any little detail counts. I have not played against him on clay. It is not the best surface for me. But of course, when you look at the percentage of Nadal victories on the surface in general and Roland Garros in particular, it can definitely be described as the biggest challenge today.

For the new generation, of which I am a part, it is interesting to see who will win the most (Grand Slams)” – said Medvedev. With his playing style, Novak Djokovic has described Medvedev as a “very complete” player, the former world’s No.

3 Alexander Zverev called him “the best player in the world right now” while Stefanos Tsitsipas described that way of playing as “very boring”


Colt Named After Rafael Nadal is a leading contender on the Kentucky Derby trail

A colt named after 12-time Roland Garros champion Rafael Nadal is a leading contender on the Kentucky Derby trail, according to The Sentinel Source. Nadal is trained by trainer Bob Baffert. In 2018, Baffert’s Justify, who had not raced as a 2-year-old, made his first start in February and less than four months later had swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont to become Baffert’s second Triple Crown winner in four years.

Nadal did also not race as a 2-year-old, made his debut in January and is now 2-for-2 and a leading contender on the Kentucky Derby trail after winning the Grade 2 San Vicente last Saturday at Santa Anita Park. According to Wikipedia, The Kentucky Derby is a horse race held annually in Louisville, Kentucky, United States, on the first Saturday in May, capping the two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival.

The competition is a Grade I stakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbreds at a distance of 2 km at Churchill Downs. It is the first leg of the American Triple Crown, followed by the Preakness Stakes, and then the Belmont Stakes.

The attendance at the Kentucky Derby ranks first in North America and usually surpasses the attendance numbers of all other stakes races including the Preakness Stakes, Belmont Stakes, and the Breeders’ Cup. It is also known in the United States as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” or “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” because of its approximate duration.
