The calendar has flipped to June so it is officially grass court season. Tennis players are changing their training, strategy, equipment, and focus to adjust to the new surface. In the tennis world, it is almost considered a new year so it is commonplace to see new videos of players making predictions about what will happen on the new surface this year.

Daniil Medvedev, 28, recently participated in one of these video montages with an unexpected and hilarious result. At the beginning of the season, no prediction is generally viewed as wrong except for Medvedev's.

It is worth noting that Medvedev is known for his hardcourt play, labeling himself the "hardcourt specialist." He is the winner of 20 ATP singles titles. Medvedev's current ranking is World No. 5. Many of the 20 titles are hardcourt victories, but he won a grasscourt title in Mallorca in 2021.

What Daniil Medvedev said

Medvedev predicted that he would be the winner of a maiden grasscourt title in 2024. Someone behind the camera must have quickly corrected him because he no sooner said it before he quickly tried to correct his error and give props to himself for winning the 2021 Mallorca Championships.

Medvedev would like nothing more than to win the biggest grasscourt match in tennis at the 2024 Wimbledon Championships. He was a semifinalist in 2023. Men's tennis is competitive and hard to predict that he definitely has a chance. He has to overcome his issues with a slow pace, bad bounces, and the variability between the conditions at the grasscourts at Wimbledon.

Most believe that Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz are the frontrunners to win Wimbledon, but Medvedev should never be counted out. Should he win Wimbledon, he will never answer this grass court trivia question wrong again. In the meantime, Medvedev continues his grass-court preparations for Wimbledon at Halle beginning on June 17.
