ROTTERDAM, September 14, 2021 (ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament Press Release)
World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev has announced his participation in the 49th ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in February. The brand new US Open champion will play at the Rotterdam Ahoy for the fifth time. The tournament will take place from 5 to 13 February 2022.
Tournament director Richard Krajicek: “Daniil Medvedev has taken the last step to the absolute top by winning the US Open. As number two in the world and winner of the ATP Finals, only the Grand Slam title was still missing. It makes it even more special to be able to announce that he is coming to Rotterdam again today. The US Open final was a historic match even before it started. Seeing Medvedev maintaining his extremely high level of play from the start to the finish, was extremely impressive. I look forward to seeing him in action during the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament.”

Daniil Medvedev participates in Rotterdam for the fifth time in a row. In 2018, he made his debut as World No. 57, after making his way through the qualifying tournament first. He beat Gilles Müller and Pierre-Hugues Herbert, before falling to Andreas Seppi in the quarterfinals after three sets.
In 2019 he returned to Rotterdam as number 16 in the world. He reached the semifinals by beating Jeremy Chardy, Fernando Verdasco and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. In the semifinals, he lost in a battle in three sets to Gael Monfils, who won the tournament. In his next two appearances, he exited in the opening round.
