World's No. 1 in ATP’s Singles Rankings, U.S. Open 2021 winner, three-time Grand Slams runner-up (U.S. Open 2019, Australian Open 2021, Australian Open 2022), and ATP Finals 2020 champ Russian Daniil Medvedev will take part in Astana Open, reports with reference to the Tennis Federation of Kazakhstan.

"We are glad that Medvedev confirmed his arrival. This year it'll be the third time for our capital to host a tournament of such a high level. It's already become a tradition that the world's top players come to Kazakhstan: previously it was Rafael Nadal, Novak Jokovic, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and now the current World's No 1", - said Vice-President of the Kazakhstan Tennis Federation Yuriy Polskiy

"I am very happy to participate in the Astana Open. Many great players before me came to this wonderful city, and I am looking forward to the start of the tournament," the tennis player said.
