Russian reached the final in Melbourne in January
“Unfortunately I will not play in Rotterdam this year,” Medvedev said. “I just got back from Australia and am not ready to compete. Rotterdam is one of the favourite stops on the Tour and Richard does a great job for the players there. I look forward to coming back in the future.”
The World No. 2 lost to Rafael Nadal in a five-set thriller in his fourth Grand Slam championship match last week in Melbourne. The Russian has competed in Rotterdam four times, with his best result a run to the semi-finals in 2019.
