Daniil Medvedev was born on February 11, 1996 in Moscow, Russia to Olga and computer engineer Sergey. He has two older sisters named Julia and Elena. When Medvedev was six, his mother spotted an advertisement for group tennis lessons; he was subsequently encouraged to enroll by his father. In addition to tennis, he practiced guitar and harpsichord growing up. For his primary education, Medvedev studied math and physics at a specialized school. He went on to attend the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, but eventually dropped out to pursue his tennis career. Medvedev then enrolled at the Russian State University of Physical Education, Sport, Youth, and Tourism. Following this, he moved with his family to Antibes, France, where he trained at a tennis academy.
In the summer of 2009, Medvedev played his first junior tennis match at a tournament in Estonia. The next year, at only his third tournament, he won his first junior title. His breakthrough season came in 2012-13, when he won six titles. Medvedev also made his junior Grand Slam debut at Junior Wimbledon, and then competed at the Junior US Open. In early 2014, he made it to world No. 13 in the junior rankings. After a first-round loss at the 2014 Junior Wimbledon, Medvedev concluded his junior career.
Professional Career, 2015-2019
Medvedev made his ATP debut in 2015 at the Kremlin Cup, where he partnered with Aslan Karatsev in the doubles event. The following year, he made his ATP singles debut at the Nice Open.

He had another strong start the following season, making it to the final of the Brisbane International and the round of 16 of the Australian Open; however, he lost in both. Medvedev later won his fourth ATP title at the Sofia Open. He then had something of a breakthrough on the North American hard courts, reaching four tournament finals and earning his first Masters title.
