The men’s singles is at a pivotal point for the 2024 French Open. Every match at this stage is big, and I’ve picked De Minaur vs Medvedev for my tennis predictions today. Let me share my thoughts and tips now.

Our favourite Alex De Minaur vs Daniil Medvedev predictions

Alex De Minaur has been enjoying a surprisingly good string of clay court results in 2024. Due to his performances, he’s now ranked just outside of the top 10. He now faces a tricky test in the form of Daniil Medvedev, who isn’t a natural clay court player, but he’s still one of the best in the world. 

With this in mind, let me share my two predictions for the game:

Over 36.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)

There are a couple of reasons I feel this is a great market to cover for this match. Firstly, both guys have dropped sets en route to the 4th round in Paris. Secondly, when they’ve met in the past, things have been pretty tight. And with this being the first encounter between the two on clay, I expect it to go down to the wire.

5 total sets @ 12/5 (3.40)

For my first prediction, a four set match should do the trick in terms of pulling that market through as a winner. But for my second prediction, I figured I’d push the boat out and shoot for a five-set thriller. As you can see, the odds for this market are fantastic, and a five-set match is very possible.

The latest moneyline odds indicate that De Minaur has a 40% chance of winning here. As for Medvedev, the implied probability of a win for him is 67.70%.

A battle of the grinders coming up at the French Open 2024

You’ve now got my predictions mapped out, but let me share some specifics about each player with a quick preview.

Alex De Minaur preview

De Minaur is officially the first Australian player to reach the 4th round of Roland Garros since Lleyton Hewitt in 2007. This is obviously a great achievement, but he will want to go further, especially since he’s ranked 11 in the world. He’s knocking on the door of becoming a real threat in these events too, but he’s lost to Medvedev 6 times before.

Daniil Medvedev preview

Medvedev has been very vocal about how he’s not too fond of the clay. His style just doesn’t suit the surface, but he has enjoyed some solid results on clay in recent years. As for his form at Roland Garros, he’s beaten a few difficult opponents to set up this match, which will give him confidence.

De Minaur vs Medvedev head to head

The head-to-head standings between these two is at 6-2 in favour of Daniil Medvedev. However, every single match they’ve played has been on hard courts. And if we only looked at the last 4 matches, each player has 2 wins over the other.
