The Australian Open 2021 is scheduled to begin from February 8 in Melbourne. The tournament was postponed for three weeks after there were a lot of scheduling issues. The strict quarantine protocols which includes a mandatory hard quarantine for two weeks has postponed the event from it’s original start date of January 17.
Daniil Medvedev is delighted with the prospect of playing at the Australian Open 2021. He expressed his gratitude to the tournament organizers who have made this tournament possible after putting in tremendous amount of hard work. The Russian is currently on his way to Melbourne. Before he left, he tweeted, “At the airport. On way to Aussie. Big thanks to @CraigTiley and his team at @TennisAustralia for all the work leading up to this. Grateful we are able to go play. Here we come @AustralianOpen.”
Daniil Medvedev aims to build on his momentum
Daniil Medvedev had a terrific end to the 2020 season, as he won the Paris Masters and the Nitto ATP Finals titles in succession. The Russian’s best Grandslam finish last year was his US Open semifinal outing, where he lost to Dominic Thiem in straight sets.
Daniil Medvedev will hope to build on his end-season momentum and do well at the Australian Open 2021. The Russian lost in the fourth round of the Australian Open last year to Stan Wawrinka in a five-set thriller. Medvedev will look forward to laying his hands on his first Grandslam title at some point in the 2021 season, given the amount of talent and quality he possesses.
