Daniil Medvedev v Kyle Edmund Head to Head
The pair have played each other twice before, and Edmund was won on each occasion. His first victory came on the hard courts of Winston-Salem in 2017, and he followed that up with a win on the clay of Madrid last year.
Medvedev, Now Ranked at Career High
Medvedev has now overtaken Kevin Anderson to become the new world number 9, his highest ever ranking and a fitting reward for a man who is a very consistent performer, especially on hard courts – no player won more matches on that surface than him last year.
He has already enjoyed success in 2019, winning his fourth career title in Sofia, and losing in the final in both Brisbane to Kei Nishikori, and Barcelona to Dominic Thiem. He also reached the semis in Monte Carlo.
Last week the thought he had the chance to claim his first major title on American soil when he reached the final in Washington, only to come up against Nick Kyrgios who was at his mercurial best. He lost in two tightly contested sets, both of which went to tie-breaks.
Edmund, First Round Conqueror of Kyrgios
Edmund has had a largely disappointing year which has seen him slide down the world rankings, although injuries have also played their part. His best performance on the senior tour came at Eastbourne where he reached the semi-finals, and he did have the satisfaction of winning the ATP Challenger Event in Indian Wells, a tournament he entered to improve his match fitness.
However, he suffered the embarrassment of an early exit from Wimbledon, and experienced further disappointment last week when he missed the chance of another semi-final when he was beaten in the last eight in Washington by the world 122 Peter Gojowczyk of Germany.
He was able to bounce back from that by beating Kyrgios in the first round here on Tuesday, although he was helped by the fact that the Australian showed the other side of his character, engaging in an ongoing row with the umpire over the delivery of towels to the courtside. Edmund shrugged off those antics, and a 90 minute rain delay, to win in straight sets.
Medvedev v Edmund Predictions & Tips
Medvedev is the odds-on favourite to win this match at 4/5, whilst Edmund is priced at 17/11. Edmund has won both the two previous meetings between these two players, but Medvedev is in much the better form and, on his favoured surface, should progress.
