Nick Kyrgios v Daniil Medvedev Head to Head
The two players have met once on the ATP tour, earlier this year on the clay at the ATP Masters 1000 in Rome. The Aussie won that in a close deciding set.
Medvedev Hoping to Cap Off Solid Week
Young Daniil Medvedev was among the most consistent players in the early part of the season and at one point had the best record for the year on the tour.
A dip in results due to a mix of poor form and fatigue saw him drop in the rankings during the clay court season, but he has returned to form in recent weeks breaking into the top ten of the ATP rankings for the first time in his career.
The Russian has had a very strong week, not having dropped a set yet with some very encouraging performances. The highlight of his week was back-to-back clinical victories against next generation star Francis Tiafoe and veteran Marin Cilic.
Medvedev has a strong all round game, with excellent groundstrokes on both wings, backed by a strong and powerful serve.
Billed as one of the potential future grand slam winners to watch out for, Medvedev has been among the more consistent of the young crop of players and will be looking to add frequently to his ATP singles tittles column.
Kyrgios Victorious in Pulsating Semi-Final
Australian Nick Kyrgios, hailed by some as being the most naturally gifted tennis player, after Roger Federer is probably the only tennis player that has made news for reasons as varied as he has. For a while now, he has been in the news for on-court brilliance, on-court lack of discipline and off-court comments.
Kyrgios has looked very strong this week as well. He made it to the semi-finals without dropping a set before he came up against Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas, in what lived to its billing of being the match of the tournament thus far. An excellent display by both players in the match, which resulted in Kyrgios winning in a final set tie break after saving match point.
The Aussie has as much talent as he does unpredictable temperament, and going into every match, no one (including Kyrgios) knows which version of Kyrgios will show up on the given day.
Kyrgios looks to be in the midst of a week similar to the one earlier this year at the Mexican Open in Acapulco, which he won defeating Alexander Zverev in the final, and would like to believe he has a good shot at lifting another ATP 500 title here on Sunday.
Nick Kyrgios v Daniil Medvedev Predictions & Tips
After a thrilling semi-final between Kyrgios and Tsitsipas, this match has all the ingredients to be another cracker. Both Kyrgios and Medvedev, have been in superb form this week, and can be expected to perform at a very high level on Sunday.
While Kyrgios can be expected to bring his histrionics with him, expect Medvedev to be his focussed, scrappy self.
An exciting final on the cards to end a fun week of tennis, which will again come down to who plays the crucial points better. Anybody’s match, but expect Kyrgios to win another three-set thriller.
