Humbert impressed in the Davis Cup, earning victories over Stan Wawrinka and Cameron Norrie. The latter was a three-set battle and he has added two more of these triumphs to his ranks in Beijing. Medvedev is a different beast and has only dropped sets to Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz in his last five matches. As he takes the court, he is the overwhelming favourite given his 40 hard-court victories in 2023 and should add another straight-set triumph to extend his brilliant record.
