Medvedev is a 6’6” (1.98m) tall baseliner. He possesses superior lateral movement, quickness and lung capacity for a player his height and length, enabling him to excel from the back court. His game is centred on remaining un-attackable in long baseline rallies due to his long, flat, low bouncing, and penetrating groundstrokes. His superior shot tolerance allows him to draw opponents into long rallies and wear them down with continued deep balls, and occasionally attack off an eventual short ball from his opponent.
