Novak Djokovic v Daniil Medvedev Head to Head
This will be the tenth meeting between both players. Djokovic leads the head-to-head 5-4. They have met twice this year with Djokovic winning the Aussie Open final and Medevedev winning the US Open final.
Seventh Year-End Number One Clinched by Djokovic
World number one Novak Djokovic sealed a record seventh year-end world number one ranking by winning a hard fought semi-final against the rising Pole Hubert Hurkacz.
Now one victory away from a sixth Paris Masters 1000 title, Djokovic was pushed to the brink by the latest Turin entrant Hurkacz.
The match started with both players holding serve in the first seven games, before Hurkacz upped the tempo in the eighth game of the first set to break for a 5-3 lead. Serving out a set is never easy against Djokovic and it was not for the Pole as he had to fend off break point before closing the set 6-3.
It was vintage Djokovic in the second set as he ran through it in not time breaking Hurkacz three times for a 6-0 set.
The third set began with some good rallies and brilliant points, but when Djokovic broke for 3-1, it looked all but over for the Pole. Hurkacz hung in and broke at 2-4, as the set was leveled at 4-4 soon thereafter.
With the match heading into a final set breaker, it was all down to who would hold their nerve better if it did. The tie-break was even to begin with a but a mini-break to Djokovic after the first change of sides resulted in him clinching it and the match with a 7-5 win.
In turn, the Serb overtakes Pete Sampras for the most year end number one finishes doing it for the seventh time here.
Medvedev Steamrolls Zverev
US Open champion and defending Paris Masters champion Daniil Medvedev has looked in mixed touch this week having returned to the tour after a shock loss to Grigor Dimitrov in Indian Wells, from a position to strength.
A hiccup against Ilya Ivasha, a lost first against Sebastian Korda, and saving set points to win a 9-7 tiebreak against home favorite Hugo Gaston all made for a none too easy path to the semi-finals.
Up against in-form Alexander Zverev in what promised to be a blockbuster, the match started as one with both players trading holds with big serving.
With Zverev looking like drawing first blood, Medvedev did well to hold for 2-2 from 15-40, but there was no stopping the Russian thereafter.
Medvedev won ten of the next eleven games with twice as many winners as errors, big serving, excellent court coverage and strong returns.
Although Zverev held at 1-5 in the second, the Russian closed the match 6-2, 6-2 to level their head-to-head at 5-5 after being down 1-5 in the matchup.
Medvedev is in another Masters final, having won all four after having lost his first ever one to Rafa Nadal in Toronto and will be looking to defend his Paris Masters title and solidify the mental edge against Djokovic ahead of the Tour Finals and the 2022 season.
Djokovic v Medvedev Prediction and Tip
