This marks an iconic era of Medvedev’s career
Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championship 2023 has been organized in the country of Dubai and it has been more than two weeks since the tournament commenced.
The tournament has been incredible in terms of its spirit. This tournament witnessed the final match in the career of legendary tennis players like Sania Mirza from India and Malek Jaziri.
The event was marked by an emotional ceremony at the Center Stadium. It attracted almost 90,000 spectators from different parts of the world.
This tournament was also a comeback for Alexander who played his first match since June 2022 after experiencing a shoulder injury. It was followed by the retention of the number one slot by Novak Djokovic over a period of 378 weeks.
The tournament did experience the firsts of many kinds and that is why it enjoyed a viewership never witnessed before. But Medvedev’s magic had the final say and added a new direction to the tournament. He played effortlessly and bagged the title which he always wanted.
Medvedev has maintained a wonderful graph ever since the beginning of his career. He maintains a winning streak of 13 games in a row and four of them being exclusively registered in one year. He defeated Rublev, who has been a tough competitor all the way down the line.
In fact, Rublev has been the first man after Rogerer to win back-to-back titles in international and national tournaments. He has also defeated Zverev but could qualify Medvedev. He was on 5-2 heads in battle with him since the first round.
This was later extended to 6-2 when Medvedev was finally declared the winner of the match.
The match between the two rock stars progressed at a very genuine rate. They both seemed to be at loggerheads in the beginning but over time, their frustration with Rublev enhanced.
He was playing frantically and desperately. On the other hand, Medvedev pursued at a very deceptive speed. He displayed his best serving capabilities. He was in the position to strike a decisive five and seven. All of this culminated to give him the first Dubai title of his career.
Medvedev has been the third player in the tournament so far who has won Felix Auger-Aliassime held in the month of October 2022 and Casper Ruud held in the month of July 2021. These two tennis tournaments including the Dubai Duty-Free are very prestigious tournaments in the careers of the players. Medvedev has registered himself and got his name coined in the history of the game. He is truly an inspiration.
All the players around the world and his followers have been bestowing him with best wishes and congratulations for having achieved a milestone in the true sense. The Crown of Dubai also took to Twitter to wish him the best in the times to come.
He received a standing ovation from the spectators as he received his trophy. According to his latest tweet, he devotes and dedicates this achievement to his country for the blind support and encouragement to compete against the best players on international grounds.
Rublev, who was the runner-up in the game was also felicitated with a standing ovation and a token of appreciation. In his concluding remarks, he not only congratulated Medvedev but also expressed his surprise over the way in which he functions. Over him, Medvedev has been a multi-dimensional personality and a reason for his growth in sports so far.
The tournament has been brought to an end. The closing ceremony would be honoring the winners once again in order to establish the glory of the country. This tournament has added a new chapter to the development of tennis across countries. Players are all set to prepare for the next edition of the tournament right from the beginning.
