Daniil Medvedev v Chris O’Connell Head to Head
This is the first meeting between the two players.
2019 Runner-Up In Sublime Form In Opener
The 2019 hard court season was a memorable one for Russian Next Gen Daniil Medvedev, with the highlights being appearing in six finals, being a US Open finalist and winning Masters 1000 titles at Cincinnati and Shanghai. Medvedev reached a career high ranking of world number four after the US Open as well.
Although his showing at the year-end ATP Finals in London was off color, Medvedev came into the 2020 season with immense promise. The first two months of the season had glimpses of the Medvedev of 2019, but was marred by unexpected losses, both during the Australian Open and the indoor tournaments during February.
The 24-year-old Russian got off to a confident start at the Western & Southern Open ATP Masters 1000 this week, and looked in control of his quarter-final match against Roberto Bautista-Agut, until a drop in concentration resulted in a tight tussle and a close loss for Medvedev.
Medvedev continued his strong form this week and looked in sublime touch in his opener and is already billed as one of the biggest challenges to world number one Novak Djokovic this fortnight.
O’Connell Wins First ATP MAtch
Little known Aussie Chris O’ Connell has had a successful run on the ATP Challengers and ITF tours, but ran into some injury issues that delayed his start to the ATP Tour.
Ranked just outside the top 100, he did well to win his first ATP match in the first round, against established Serbian Laslo Djere in four sets. The battle will be considerably more uphill against Medvedev, though.
The Aussie will look to give it his best as he seeks to gain confidence on the main ATP tour.
Daniil Medvedev v Chris O’Connell Prediction & Tip
Not a very evenly matched contest on the cards, as Medvedev starts as a strong favorite. Expect Medvedev to sail through this match, just like he did in the open
Tip: Medvedev to win in straight sets: 2/9 (bet365)
