Medvedev Aims Tour Finals Repeat

The defending Tour Finals champion and world number two Daniil Medvedev looks to wrap up what has been a phenomenal season for him.

2021 saw him move to number two in the ATP rankings, lead Russia to the ATP cup title, winning the ATP 250 titles at Marseille and Mallorca, the Canadian Masters 1000 and the all important maiden slam at the US Open. Medvedev was also runner-up at the Aussie Open and the Paris Masters to Novak Djokovic on both occasions and had good runs at a number of other tournaments through the year.

It has been another solid week for Medvedev here at the Tour Finals as he has continued his unbeaten run from 2020 after failing to win any of his matches during his debut in 2019. The world number two is currently on a nine match unbeaten run at this event since 2020.

Medvedev won all his group stage matches but not without the fair share of challenges as he was pushed to three sets on each occasion by Hubert Hurkacz, Alexander Zverev and Jannik Sinner respectively.

The fast courts have worked to the Russian’s advantage and enabled him to pull himself out of difficult situations with his strong first and second serves.

Playing recent top ten entrant and first time Tour Finals participant Casper Ruud in the semi-finals, it was clinical Medvedev all the way, both on serve and with the groundstrokes. Medvedev broke timely in the first set and held on to close out 6-4.

The world number two upped the ante and broke early in the second to ensure there was no drop in momentum and before too long it was all one way traffic.

A 6-4, 6-2 win sealed another spot in the title round for Medvedev at the Tour Finals and he will look to defend his title to cap what has been an excellent season for him all around.

Zverev Scalps Djokovic

Alexander Zverev won the 2018 Tour Finals in London and was tipped to be a Grand Slam winner soon thereafter.

Atlhough its been an up and down run for the German since, he has been back at his best this season.

With five titles in the bag already spanning from Masters 1000s at Madrid and Cincinnati, to ATP 500s at Acapulco & Vienna and the coveted Olympic gold, the world number three has his eyes on a tour leading sixth ATP title for the year.

It has been a week of difficult opponents for the German coming through a tough first set against Matteo Berrettini before the Italian withdrew with injury, and then losing 6-8 in a final set tiebreak against Medvedev.

Zverev sealed his spot in the semis with a routine straight sets win against Hurkacz and a match against world number Novak Djokovic in the final four.

There was no letting go of intensity at either end as both players held serve and the first set headed for a tie-break. Although Zverev had the early mini-break, Djokovic got it back almost immediately. Another minibreak for the German and the set was his in the bag.

The second set saw some good exchange of shots and at 4-4 on the Zverev serve, Djokovic upped the ante breaking serve giving himself a shot to serve out the set. An epic tenth game followed with Djokovic finally holding to equalize the match winning the second set 6-4.

Going into the third set, both players held early but when Zverev broke to go up 3-1, it was beginning to look difficult for the Serb to come back given how the German was serving with immense precision.

Up 4-2 in the third, Zverev got somewhat tight on his serve as he had to fend off break points with Djokovic pushing hard. But once the German held for 5-2, it was uphill for Djokovic thereafter.

There was no sign of nerves for the world number three looking to close out the match at 5-3 and some big serving ensured he was back in the final looking for a second Tour Finals title.

Medvedev v Zverev Prediction and Tip

In what is becoming an up and coming rivalry of sorts, it is fitting in some ways that the two players to have posed the only threat to world number one Novak Djokovic all season meet in the season ending finale for the Tour Finals title.

Given recent form and head-to-head, Medvedev comes in as the favorite, but the odds will be close given that Zverev will be high on confidence after the semi-final win against the world number one and the mental challenge for Medvedev to beat someone three times in two weeks.

A tight match to end the season, but will have to go with the US Open champion to repeat his Tour Finals title win from last year.
