So what happened next?
It was just an incredible game at the final tournament in London. Daniil did not suffer a single defeat at the group stage, defeated World №1, World №2, World №3.

Daniil’s success in recent years is due to the cooperation with his coach Gilles Cervara. They began working together in late 2017, when Daniil moved to Cannes, France, where his sister Elena lives. Already in 2018 there were the first results of this cooperation. Daniel won three tournaments in Winston Salem, Sydney, Tokyo.
In 2019, Gilles Cervara received the coach of the year award, which is not surprising, because Medvedev gave just a phenomenal series of victories on the hard -34 wins.
Daniil won 4 trophies for the year 5 more times played in the finals, but could not achieve victory.
Coaching career highlights:
- ATP coach of the year 2019;
- Helped Daniil Medvedev to win 9 titles.
“Dani has quite an unusual technique because he has a very unusual body. Luckily, such a technique brings Medvedev benefits – thanks to his body, biomechanics, psychology and mentality.
Every victory is the result of the system. Without it, it wouldn’t have worked.” said Gevara
