Musetti vs Medvedev – Match Predictions
It goes without saying that Daniil Medvedev is the red-hot favorite to take the win in this match today. Medvedev is the number 3 in the world at the moment, and on his day, he’s one of the top hard-court players on the ATP Tour.
With that said, Lorenzo Musetti is by no means a pushover, especially not with a ranking of 19 in the world. So – which way will the Musetti vs Medvedev match swing and what are the best bets to make? Find out below.
Medvedev to Win 2-0
To be absolutely clear, this suggestion is for Medvedev to win the match 2-0 in sets, meaning in ‘straight sets’. And essentially, I’m shooting for this market because it displays much better value than simply picking Daniil Medvedev to win. At the same time, there’s a strong possibility that Medvedev will indeed beat Musetti in straight sets today, especially with Musetti only just beating Kokkinakis yesterday in three close sets.
Under 20.5 Games
If Medvedev is to win in straight sets, and assuming Musetti doesn’t play out of his skin, there is every chance that the match will consist of fewer than 20.5 games. For this to happen, Musetti must win 8 or fewer games in two sets against Medvedev, meaning a scoreline of 6-4 6-4, for example. Furthermore, given that Medvedev is a true grinder, he could frustrate Musetti and win by such a margin.
Musetti vs Medvedev Preview
You now know which way I feel this game will swing, but how about further insight into these two guys? Take a look at the preview below before these guys do battle in the Montreal Open.
Lorenzo Musetti Preview
Currently, Lorenzo Musetti is ranked 19 in the world. And as we all know, he’s a flashy player that can produce magical tennis when he wants to. Yet after just squeezing past a qualifier, Kokkinakis, in the previous round, is he really capable of taking out the 2nd seed? I certainly have my doubts.
Daniil Medvedev Preview
At this point in the season, Daniil Medvedev really starts to shine. He loves hard courts in general, yet when it comes to the North American hard-court swing, something seems to click. After all, he has won this title before in 2021, and he’s been having quite a remarkable 2023 season. This reflects in his current ranking of number 3 in the world.
Musetti vs Medvedev Head to Head
Since these two guys have never played each other on the ATP Tour, there is zero to work with concerning the head-to-head. For that reason, we can only work with the player’s rankings, game styles, and form to determine the likely outcome of this National Bank Open match.
