Daniil Medvedev v Gilles Simon Head to Head
The two men have played each other before on Simon’s preferred surface of clay, back in Lyon in 2017, with the Frenchman winning a three set encounter.
Medvedev, Hunting First Grass Title
23 year old Medvedev is looking for his second ATP title, of the year, and 5th overall, to add to his win in Sofia earlier this year. As the highest ranked man left in the tournament, he must have a very good chance of doing so.
if he does manage the feat, then it will be the biggest win of a year to date that has seen him reach the final in Barcelona, and also attain his first Masters semi-final in Monte Carlo.
He began his run in London this week with a routine win over Fernando Verdasco of Spain, before he was given a much stiffer test by Lucas Pouille of France in the second round, his superior serve helping him to win a tense three set encounter. However, he was able to cruise past Diego Schwartzman of Argentina in the quarter-finals for the loss of jut four games, and will be relatively rested against an opponent who has already played 3 consecutive three set matches.
Simon, Benefitting from Favourable Draw at Queen’s
There is no doubt that Simon has been the beneficiary of a lucky draw so far this week. First he was pitted against the British qualifier James Ward, and having battled past his challenge, he met the number two seed Kevin Anderson.
In theory this was a very tough match for Simon, but Anderson is just coming back from a very long injury lay-off, and still lacks match practice, something Simon was able to take advantage of to win, again in three sets. That then gave him a match with another qualifier in the semi-final, compatriot Nicolas Mahut, and although that encounter went to three sets and a tie-break again, the 34-year old was able to prevail in the end.
This will be his fourth semi-final of the year so far, and, having lost in Pune and Sydney at the start of the year, and Marrakech in April, he will be hoping to go one step further this time.
Medvedev v Simon Predictions & Tips
Medvedev is the clear odds-on favourite for this match at 1/4, whilst Simon is the outsider at 43/10 at 11/5. Whilst Medvedev has little history on grass, nor does Simon, and the Russian has the advantage of having played much less tennis this week. He should progress to the final, probably in straight sets.
