U.S. Open runner-up Daniil Medvedev is back in action this week as the new World No. 4 looks to continue his winning momentum in St. Petersburg.

There’s no rest for the wicked as Medvedev returns to action just one week after his classic U.S. Open final with Rafael Nadal. The 23-year-old is one of two Russians in the top 10 - the other being Karen Khachanov - that is competing at the 250-level St. Petersburg Open this week, with Medvedev hoping to secure a third title of what has turned into an extraordinary season.


Medvedev’s exploits over the North American summer - where he finished runner-up in Washington and Montreal and won his maiden Masters 1000 title before going on to reach the U.S. Open final - saw him climb to a career-high No. 4 in the world, and if he can emerge with the St. Petersburg title this week, he will be around 1,000 points clear of No. 5 Dominic Thiem.

There was no movement in the ATP top 20 this past week, with no tour-level tournaments held in the week following the U.S. Open, while Davis Cup zonal ties were also being staged.

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are set to battle it out for the No. 1 ranking over the remaining months of the season, with the Spaniard closing the gap to 640 points courtesy of winning his second major title of 2019 at the U.S. Open.

Djokovic was forced to pull out in the fourth round at Flushing Meadows and is scheduled to return to action from a shoulder injury at the Japan Open in Tokyo at the end of the month, while Nadal is set to compete in the Laver Cup this weekend for Team Europe.


Roger Federer at No. 3 is still in the conversation, but he’s over 2,000 points behind Nadal and would need to win some Masters 1000 titles in Shanghai and Paris to propel himself within striking distance.

Matteo Berrettini and Borna Coric are also part of a strong St. Petersburg field this week, while David Goffin and Nikoloz Basilashvili lead the draw at the Moselle Open in Metz.
