Australia’s tennis star Nick Kyrgios has given Russia’s Daniil Medvedev a new nickname after his impressive outing at Wimbledon 2024. The third Grand Slam is moving towards a conclusion, and the remaining players are giving their all to secure the ultimate prize.
Australia’s Kyrgios, who is currently spending time on the sidelines because of a fitness concerns, in a post on his official account on the social media platform X — previously known as Twitter — gave a new after his famous win at Wimbledon. "The Slim Reaper (MEDVEDEV) was IMPRESSIVE. - best match I’ve seen him play on grass…… playing with his return position and choosing appropriate times to come forward make him DANGEROUS,” he wrote.
Medvedev registered a famous win over the current world number one Jannik Sinner in the quarterfinal of the mega-event with a score of 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 2-6, 6-3. The win was an important one for the Russian tennis star as he suffered back-to-back defeats to Sinner in the previous two matches. One of those defeats came in the final of the Australian Open where, in another five-set thriller, it was the Italian tennis star who came out on top with a score of 3-6 3-6 6-4 6-4 6-3.
Medvedev is now set to face off Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz in the last four clashes of the mega-event. The current world number three defeated America’s Taylor Fritz with a score of 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-2. It will be the seventh meeting between the two. In the previous six meetings, the Spaniard had a clear edge with four wins compared to Medvedev’s two victories. However, their head-to-head record is equal while playing on grass, as both emerged victorious on one occasion. Their most recent meeting came during the final of the Indian Wells back in March earlier this year, where Alcaraz came out on top with a score of 7-5, 6-1.
