Hurkacz and his blistering serve have put rivals on their back foot and will surely be challenged by Medvedev. Although he has a winning record against Megamind, we believe it is time the Russian brings it to level pegging. Medvedev has impressed at Melbourne Park, finding a way to get past his rivals and should give a similar assessment of his abilities in this meeting. Nevertheless, Hurkacz will battle but find himself on the wrong side of a 3-1 result.
