Our favourite Alex de Minaur vs Daniil Medvedev – match predictions

Medvedev impressed in his straight-set victory over Tommy Paul and will have similar designs against De Minaur. It will not be an easy task as the Australian has two wins in their last three duels.

2-0 to Daniil Medvedev @ 18/25 (1.72)

Medvedev’s consistency on hard surfaces is evident in his remarkable quarterfinal appearances in eight out of ten hardcourt tournaments this year, including impressive wins over top players like Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz. While De Minaur has improved in his outings, he has not been as consistent. The Australian was fortunate against Andy Murray and Medvedev will not give him the same opportunities. We do not anticipate this match going the distance and expect it to finish with a 2-0 conclusion in Medvedev’s favour.

Under 20.5 Games @ 91/100 (1.91)

Murray suffered his fourth defeat to De Minaur in 13 months, a jinx he should have lifted in their first-round encounter had he been able to convert the three match points that came his way. The Australian will now face the US Open finalist who has been on an absolute tear in 2023 with 39 hardcourt wins. Medevedev finished off Paul in the first round, accruing only three games. We believe another clinical finish will be delivered by the Russian, who should head for an early bath by finishing it under 20.5 games.
