Medvedev can with Zverev in “a match to remember”

Reigning ATP Finals champion Daniil Medvedev survived in an epic duel on Tuesday to beat Alexander Zverev for the sixth time in eleven games: 6-3, 6-7 (3) and 7-6 (6) in 2h35. With two wins in the Red Group, the Russian is qualified for the semifinals, although the Polish Hubert Hurkacz does not win, which he also beat in three sets last Sunday. Because the loss of Matteo Berrrettini, who will not be able to play due to the abdominal injury he suffered against Zverev, puts him directly in the crosses. Jannik Sinner, will replace his compatriot. He is the first substitute to play the Masters since Pablo Carreño when he competed in place of the injured Rafa Nadal from the second day.

“It’s definitely one of those games to remember,” Medvedev said., who explained how the tiebreaker in the third set had seemed crazy to him. “Yes, I won 8-6, after he made a 4-2 run with some aces. Then I got up with 6-4 and I thought it was my time, but then 6-6 came because I wanted to make an serve and volley movement at 6-5, and it didn’t work at all. Maybe I should have stayed in the background because he made an incredible shot. In the end, winning was an incredible feeling. “

This is how Medvedev told the summarized chronicle of the last game That sums up very well the match in which he got rid of the German for the fifth time in a row, who will depend on himself to pass if Hurkacz wins. “Sometimes that’s how tennis is,” Medvedev added. “You try to do your best. Sometimes luck is on your side, sometimes not”, he affirmed to explain his streak of seven consecutive wins in the tournament between 2020 and 2021. This season he tied at 56 with Zverev at the top of the table.
