About Daniil Medvedev’s wife and her role in his career?
Daniil Medvedev got married to his longtime girlfriend Daria in September last year and says that his wife is an essential member of his team. The Russian is doing rather well in recent times and he even cracked the top ten rankings. Daniil is very appreciative of his wife and considers one of the important reasons for his improved performance. He says:
“She gave me a lot of confidence. I always say that it’s the moment I made the proposal to her, that’s when I started to go up [in the rankings]. It was at this moment — it was after Wimbledon. I was, I think, 65 or something like this, and at the end of the year, I was already 15.”.
Daniil’s wife Daria hails from Moscow, Russia. Medvedev is much appreciative of his wife and gives her credit for making him a better player. The couple dated for four years before they tied the knot. Daniil has made a rapid improvement in his ranking and he credits Daria for that. He says:
“I made the best American swing I could have made last year, and it was only going up, and she does a lot for me in order for me to play better tennis. I’m talking about small things in life that would take my attention, she cares about them, and I just have to play tennis and win some matches.”
