‘378 weeks 1st place’ Djokovic, fell to Medvedev in the quarterfinals of the Dubai Championships… End of 20 win streak

Novak Djokovic (36, Serbia) collapsed.

Djokovic played Daniil Medvedev (7th, Russia) in the semifinals of the singles on the 5th day of the Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) Tour Dubai Duty Free Championship (total prize money: $2,855,495) held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the 3rd (local time). 0-2 (4-6, 4-6).

The 20-game winning streak from the ATP Finals, which was the final game of the season in November last year, to this tournament has also stopped. This is Djokovic’s first defeat this year. After winning the Australian Open in January, after struggling to rehabilitate a left hamstring injury, it was a tournament that announced his return after a long time, but the challenge to win the championship was frustrated as Medvedev got caught. 먹튀검증

After defeating Djokovic in the 2021 US Open final, Medvedev was mired in four consecutive losses, but overcame the odds and is expected to fight Andrei Rublev (6th, Russia) for the long-awaited championship.

Until this week, Djokovic kept the world number one for a total of 378 weeks, surpassing the record of 377 weeks held by Steffi Graf (Germany), a legend in the women’s tennis world, to obtain the longest number one title ever. However, the afterglow was not carried over to this tournament. I am planning to participate in the ATP Tour BNP Paribas Open (total prize money of 8.8 million dollars), which opens on the 8th in Indian Wells, California, USA, but I am not sure. Foreigners entering the United States must get the Corona 19 vaccine, but Djokovic has long refused to be vaccinated for personal reasons. He requested a special entry permit from the US authorities, but a decision has not been made.

Djokovic’s plan to aim for the 23rd major championship ever at the French Open, a major tournament to be held in May by taking advantage of the excitement in a series of recent tournaments, has also been disrupted.
