THE BALL – Medvedev two wins away from regaining the lead in the ‘ranking’ (Tennis)

Russian Daniil Medvedev is two wins away from regaining the lead of the ranking ATP, a position he held for three weeks and lost again to Novak Djokovic in the last update.

On the last morning, the number two in the hierarchy beat the Spaniard Pedro Martínez, 6-3 and 6-4, and ensured his presence in the round of 16 of the Miami tournament, where he will face the American Jenson Brooksby.
