Daniil Medvedev v Vasek Pospisil Head to Head
The player have met once in their career. Medvedev defeated Pospisil in straight sets at the Shanghai Masters in 2019, en route the tittle.
Medvedev Aiming For Deep Run After Sub-Par Aussie Open
World number five Daniil Medvedev is part of the ‘Next Gen’ of upcoming tennis players and along with Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas, has been tipped as the ones most likely to win major tournaments in the near future.
2019 was a stellar year for Medvedev, who qualified for six finals in a row, won two ATP Masters 1000 titles (Cincinnati and Shanghai) and put up a stellar performance against Rafa Nadal in the US Open final.
Medvedev reached a career high ATP ranking of four in 2019, ending the year right behind the ‘Big Three’.
Although 2019 ended with a disappointing run at the ATP Tour finals where he lost all his singles matches, Medvedev started off the season strong this year. The inaugural ATP Cup saw him lead Russia to the final four where he came within a few points of defeating Novak Djokovic.
However, a stunning fourth round loss to Stan Wawrinka at the Australian Open, after being up two sets to one would have set him back, and he will look for a title run here to get the year back to his expectations.
In-Form Pospisil Coming Off Solid Montpellier Week
Vasek Pospisil was ranked as high as number 25 midway through the last decade, and had a strong singles and doubles career in the pipeline.
A flurry of injuries and poor recovery set him back a few years, and he finally looked like making a comeback since the Fall of 2019.
Pospisil did well to assist Canada reach the final of the Davis Cup at the end of 2019 and got his new season (2020) off to a positive start with a good run last week at the Montpellier Open.
The Canadian was runner-up to Gael Monfils at Montpellier, with wins against Denis Shapovalov, Richrd Gasuqet (albeit injured), and a confidence boosting semi-final victory against world number ten David Goffin.
Although Pospisil fell short of the title with a straight set defeat to Gael Monfils, he will be hopeful of another good run this week at Rotterdam, under similar conditions.
Daniil Medvedev v Vasek Pospisil Predictions & Tips
Although Medvedev will start as a strong favorite here in this opening round match, he will keep in mind that Pospisil is more match ready and on a bit of a run in the last week or so.
The Russian will look to start strong and play his baseline game, hoping that the Canadian’s legs will be less fresh after a busy last week in Montpellier.
While Pospisil may continue his form and cause trouble to the young Russian, Medvedev is expected to come out clinically, after his unexpected Melbourne loss.
Expect a straight set win for the fresh and rested Medvedev against the somewhat tired Pospisil.
