Medvedev 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Daniil Sergeyevich Medvedev was born in Moscow to Sergey Medvedev and Olga Medvedeva. Daniil’s father, a computer engineer, developed his own business of building materials sales, from the mid-1980s to the early 2010s.
Medvedev has two older sisters named Julia and Elena, 12 and 8 years his senior, respectively. When he was 6 years old, his mother noticed an advertisement for group tennis lessons at the pool where he was taking swimming lessons.
His father encouraged him to enroll. Medvedev’s first tennis teacher was Ekaterina Kryuchkova, a former coach of professional tennis player Vera Zvonareva among others. Daniil’s other childhood activities besides sport included harpsichord and guitar lessons.
Medvedev studied physics and math at a specialized school before graduating early and enrolling in economics and commerce at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations. He later dropped out to focus on tennis.
He then switched to the Russian State University of Physical Education, Sport, Youth, and Tourism, where he received his diploma as coach. With his family he moved to Antibes, France where he trained at the tennis academy.
His parents have been living in France since then, as retirees. As a result of living mostly overseas after turning 18, Medvedev can speak French and English fluently, besides his native Russian.
Medvedev married his girlfriend Daria Chernyshkova, a Moscow State University graduate and former juniors tennis player, in Moscow on 12 September 2018.
In September 2019, he credited his marriage for the improvement of his tennis results: “Before I made a proposal, I had been on the 65th place in the ranking, and then in ten months I’ve won two major tournaments and entered the top 10.
We have significantly rebuilt our life, we work for each other. I earn , and Dasha helps me to earn more”. Daria also works as his assistant, e.g., she helps to prolong travel visas which is not easy with a Russian passport.
When he won the US Open on 12 September 2021, his first Grand Slam singles title, Medvedev joked, referring to the final being on the same day as his wedding anniversary, “If I lose, I have no time to find a present. So I have to win this match.”
Medvedev has been listed as an “unsuitable” subject to compulsory military service in the Russian Armed Forces because of his minor health issues due to the preterm birth at 8 months.
Like many other Russian tennis players, Medvedev considered switching to the flag of Kazakhstan in the beginning of his professional career for a lack of support from the Russian Tennis Federation.
