Later, in 2018 he won his first-ever ATP title at the Sydney International.
Furthermore, winning his second ATP at the 2018 Winston-Salem Open with the ATP title in Tokyo the same year made him the number 1 player in Russia.
Similarly, the player has won 20 ATP Tour singles titles, together with the 2021 U.S. Open and 2020 ATP Finals.

The couple welcomed their newborn on October 14, 2022, and announced her birth on their Instagram, posting a picture of her sleeping.

The following April, Daniil shared more snaps of the baby as she was baptized with her family and friends around her.

Meet His Wife Daria Medvedev
Daniil is exclusive about his private life, but he started dating Daria Medvedev back in 2014 for the first time.
However, the two met each other when Daria was 12 years old Daria in a café near the local tennis court.
The two tied the knot in 2018 before the tennis star played in the Davis Cup for Russia.
Daria, the Russian born, used to play tennis during her teenage but failed to make a professional due to injuries.
Later, she pivoted toward a career in journalism, enrolling at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations.
Daniil has attributed much of his success to his wife and claimed that without her backing, he wouldn’t be as good of a player.
“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,” he added.
Daria has always been a strong support for her husband and regularly attends his matches.
