Our favourite Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Daniil Medvedev – match predictions

Auger-Aliassime proved his credentials against Hugo Grenier but his biggest test comes in the form of the third seed who found a way to get past Emil Ruusuvuori in the second round.

3-1 to Daniil Medvedev @ 13/5 (3.60)

In their prior six matches, Auger-Aliassime has only shaved off a set from Medvedev once. Rest have been straight-set victories. As they meet again, the Canadian has a 3-1 victory to brag about while Medvedev had to dig deep and register a comeback after being 2-0 down. We believe this will impact his run of straight-set victories against Auger-Aliassime, but still have enough in the tank to claim a 3-1 victory against him.

Over 35.5 Games @ 4/5 (1.80)

Medvedev is still not firing on all cylinders, surrendering the first set against Terence Atmane before rallying to take a 2-1 lead. The French ace had to retire after it but the match was hinting at a long-drawn battle. His second outing was a 51-game battle and a similar outcome seems on the cards against Auger-Aliassime, who got the better of Hugo Grenier in 31 games. Medvedev will be multiple levels higher and the match will not finish as quickly. Based on this, we are backing the over 35.5 games selection which should come to fruition in this duel.
