After the ATP 500 in the Netherlands, it is likely that Nadal will lose second place to Medvedev

Without the participation of the Spanish “Bull”, the world number 3 Russian player, Daniil Medvedev was promoted to seed number 1 at the Rotterdam Open. Without the biggest opponent, the chance for Medvedev to win the championship is higher and it is likely that the Russian player will surpass Nadal for the first time to rise to No. 2 in the world.

On the ATP men’s singles chart, Mevedev is only 115 points behind Nadal, so the Russian player only needs to reach the semi-finals of Rotterdam to take Rafa’s position. Last year Medevedev was also the No. 1 seed, but he was eliminated in the first round, the Rotterdam Open 2020 championship belonged to Gael Monfils.
