Daniil Medvedev v Hubert Hurkacz Head to Head
This will be a first meeting between the two players who share their birthday on February 11, although Medvedev, 25, is a year older than the Pole.
Medvedev Comes Back from Two Sets Down to Advance
World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev rallied from two sets down to defeat 2017 Wimbledon finalist Marin Cilic in the third round on Saturday and advance to the second week at Wimbledon for the first time in his career.
The Russian battled for three hours and 36 minutes for a remarkable 6-7 (3-7), 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 victory.
Medvedev served 16 aces and struck 38 winners in the match that saw him convert eight of 15 break points. Cilic broke the Russian’s serve five times and hit 49 winners, but lost control of his game after the first two sets, making a flurry of unforced errors. In all, the Croatian had 68 unforced errors in the match compared to Medvedev’s 31.
The win was Medvedev’s seventh straight on grass this season. He had come into the tournament, having won his first tour-level title on grass in Mallorca.
Medvedev began his Wimbledon challenge with a 6-4, 6-1, 4-6, 7-6 (7-3) win over Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff. He had a relatively easy second round against Carlos Alcaraz Garfia, beating the 18-year-old Spaniard 6-4, 6-1, 6-2.
An 11-time winner on the tour, Medvedev reached a second Grand Slam final at the Australian Open this year, but just like his first at the U.S. Open in 2019, he ended up being the second-best in the tournament.
Hurkacz Hustles Past Bublik
World No. 18 Hubart Hurkacz advanced to the fourth round of a major for the first time as the Pole outplayed Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik in the third round of Wimbledon on Saturday.
The 24-year-old, whose previous best at a Grand Slam was a third-round finish in 2019, needed an hour and 24 minutes to win 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.
Hurkacz didn’t face a break point in the match, while broke his opponent four times and struck 33 winners to end the World No. 38’s run.
Bublik’s big serves had troubled Mikhail Kukushkin and Grigor Dimitrov in the first two rounds. The Kazakh had served 16 aces in the first round against his compatriot and 35 against Dimitrov in the second round, but Hurkacz didn’t allow Bublik to dictate terms. Bublik served just 10 aces and made five double faults in the Round of 32, while Hurkacz served seven aces and didn’t make a double fault in the match.
The 14th seed Hurkacz, who became the first Polish player to win a Masters 1000 title when he won the Miami Open title earlier this year, had begun his Wimbledon challenge with a 6-4, 7-6 (7-5), 6-1 win over 19-year-old Italian Lorenzo Musetti.
Yet to drop a set in the tournament, Hurkacz had defeated America’s Marcos Giron 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 in the second round on Thursday.
Hurkacz is now 18-11 this year, and that includes two title success. He defeated Sebastian Korda to win the Delray Beach Open and beat Jannik Sinner in the final in Miami.
Medvedev v Hurkacz Prediction and Tip
This is going to be an interesting contest. Hurkacz has destroyed his first three opponents and is getting better with every match.
Medvedev on the other hand has already lost three sets in the first three rounds and has looked shaky at times. But his gutsy showing against Cilic proves that he can raise his level and bounce back from difficult situations.
Expect Hurkacz to test the World No. 2 in the fourth round, but Medvedev to come out unscathed for a potential quarterfinal clash with Roger Federer.
