After putting his straight-sets US Open final loss against Novak Djokovic to one side, Daniil Medvedev and his tight-knit team coached by Gilles Cervara have shifted focus to a spring finish to the 2023 season.
ATP No. 3 Medvedev fell flat this month as he lost to Djokovic in the New York title match where nothing worked.
But the Monte Carlo-based Medvedev is turning the page, with emphasis on powering through to the ATP Finals in Turin in November even if reaching No. 1 this season is out of reach due to the dominance of Djokovic and Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz.
“We have five tournaments left to play this season and they are still very important for us,” the French coach said.
“I think we are going to recover as a team and that Daniil will do things very well.”
He added: “What happened in New York only increases the hunger for glory and confidence when facing this final stretch.”
Medvedev is due to front up for the Tour’s return to China for the first time since 2019 due to COVID.
Medvedev is signed for Two Masters 1000 dates in Shanghai and Paris Bercy plus a handful of 500 events.
The eight-man finals begin in Italy on November 12.
