Daniil Medvedev vs Karen Khachanov – Match Predictions
Daniil Medvedev To Win
Karen Khachanov last triumphed against Daniil Medvedev back in October 2018. He has been on the losing end in their two meetings since. He will be looking to get the better of his compatriot but it looks unlikely that he will force the issue. Medvedev is firing on all cylinders and will be looking to reach his fifth competition final in succession. Moreover, he is less fatigued thanks to the second round walkover after Alex Molcan had withdrawn.
2-0 to Daniil Medvedev
Medvedev has been on an absolute tear in the Sunshine Double. He made little work of his rivals in Indian Wells and has forged a similar path at the Hard Rock Stadium. He has yet to drop a set in Miami and has only been broken once thus far. On the other hand, Khachanov has been made to work hard by his rivals, occasionally dropping games. Their last two matches saw Medvedev come out on top in straight sets and a similar outcome looks likely in their latest duel.
Daniil Medvedev vs Karen Khachanov Preview
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in Miami Open.
The straight-sets defeat to Sebastian Korda in the Australian Open seems like a memory from bygone times. Medvedev has not looked back since, tearing apart the competition wherever he has gone since. He added silverware to his ranks in Rotterdam, Doha and Dubai. He came up short against Carlos Alcaraz in Indian Wells and will want to go one better in the second leg of the Sunshine Double.
While Medvedev has sent the opposition seeking cover, Khachanov will be pleased with his accomplishments. He reached the semifinals of the Australian Open, bowing out to the mastery of Stefano Tsitsipas. He was humbled by Botic Van De Zandschulp in Dubai and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in Indian Wells. In Miami, he has made a strong comeback and will have his eyes on the prize.
