The House of BOVET 1822 Celebrates Daniil Medvedev Achieving the Rank of #1 Tennis Player in the World

Based on the ATP rankings released on February 28, 2022, Daniil Medvedev is now the #1 ranked player in the world.

Daniil is not your typical tennis player. With an unusual style and a strategical savvy that has earned him the nickname “the Chessmaster,” Medvedev is a whirlwind on the tennis court, chasing down everything and using his booming serve and powerful groundstrokes to control the match.

Not just a physically gifted player, Medvedev is considered a true game-changer of the sport.

BOVET 1822 and Daniil began their collaboration in 2019, and Daniil quickly rose through the ranks, reaching #2 in the world in 2021, with expectations high for the future.

Then, this month, Daniil achieved one of his biggest goals, being #1 in the ATP rankings.

From the very first time they met, Daniil Medvedev and Pascal Raffy, owner of BOVET 1822, realized they had so much in common.

First off, they are both lovers of the great game of tennis, and this common ground led them to discover their mutual passions for excellence, dedication, attention to detail, and they have revolutionized their respective worlds.

From the first time I started following Daniil’s career, I knew he had greatness in him,” says Mr. Raffy.

“Then I met him and saw what a gentleman he was, and we decided to work together.

We both have the desire for excellence, done in a unique way. I am very proud of the way Daniil has risen through the ranks and achieved the #1 ranking.

He is the leader of the new guard of tennis stars and this is going to be the start of true dominance. We look forward to spectacular things with Daniil.”

Daniil appreciates his partnership with BOVET and the way that the House has stood by him throughout his career.

“One of the values we share is loyalty,” Daniil says. “We can have good moments and bad ones, and we go through them together. It is important for me to know that even during the tough moments, we stay together. I know a lot of people in the company and it’s like a big family. We have each other’s back.

“Now that I am ranked #1, high expectations motivate me. I have to work hard in practice. I will try to win every match I play. It’s match by match to win a tournament. In Grand Slams, it’s seven matches to win the tournament, it doesn’t matter where you are ranked. My expectation is higher, and the better I do, the better I want to do.”

2022 is truly shaping up to be a great year. The House of BOVET is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year, and Daniil is the #1 tennis player in the world for the first time in his spectacular career.
