Men’s tennis has a new star and his name is Daniil Medvedev.
Medvedev will take the world number two ranking on March 15. By doing so he becomes the first man outside the sport’s ‘Big Four’ to occupy the spot in almost 16 years.
Since July 25, 2005, only Djokovic, Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray have made the top two.
The 25-year-old Russian has made it to the top by being the runner-up to Djokovic at the Australian Open final last month and making the final of a tournament in Rotterdam.
