And he had his wife court-side to cheer every shot as he won a first grand slam title on his third anniversary.
Now, the Russian is looking to go one better then last year in the Australian Open, where he lost the 2021 final to Djokovic.
Who is Daniil Medvedev’s wife Daria?
Medvedev is extremely coy about his private life but he met wife Daria back in 2014 for the first time.
Daria hails from Russia’s capital, Moscow.
The pair tied the knot before he played in the Davis Cup for Russia back in September 2018.
Daria also used to play tennis herself but ultimately failed to make it as a professional because of injuries.

“She played tennis until she was 17 or 18, but because of injuries she couldn’t reach the desired level,” Daniil has previously said.
“Nevertheless, it’s great that she understands tennis. She knows that we can’t go shopping before the game. Understands that I can be busy from 8 am until the evening.
“Perhaps it’s not easy to get used to it when you don’t understand anything in tennis. It helped me to become better as a person and a player.”
Do they have children?
Medvedev and his wife Daria do not currently have any children.
The 25-year-old resides in Monte Carlo, Monaco with Daria and he also receives tremendous support from his parents Sergey and Olga.

What has Medvedev said about her?
Medvedev has naturally doted over his wife on numerous occasions.
“She’s one of the most important members of my team,” he said during a press conference in 2019.
“She gave me a lot of confidence. I always say that it’s the moment I made the proposal to her, that’s when I started to go up

“It was at this moment – it was after Wimbledon – I was, I think, 65 or something like this, and at the end of the year, I was already 15.
“I mean, I made the best American swing I could have made last year, and it was only going up, and she does a lot for me in order for me to play better tennis.”
