Quarter-finals of an ATP 500 tournament at Washington, US (hard). This is the most exciting match of the quarter-final of the tournament as two very talented players will face off at this stage. To have more insights on this ATP Marin Cilic vs Daniil Medvedev match please check out the preview below.
30 years old Croatian, who is currently ranked 17th overall. He is Top10 player recently but has drooped out of it due to some small injuries and bad performances during the past few months. It was very interesting to see Cilic being placed as an underdog on hard ground at his previous match against Auger-Alliasime, who hasn’t proven himself yet and were placed as a favorite against one of the best known hard players in Marin Cilic. Well, Croatian has proved that he can’t be underestimated that much and that he’s coming back to his optimal form by winning against young Frenchman in straight sets. Cilic is over 66% career win rate player on hard grounds and if he manages to reach his best form before the US Open, we might very well see him coming back to Top 10 again.
23 years old, currently 10th ranked Russian hasn’t drooped a single set this tournament so far. He runs over B. Fratangelo and F. Tiafoe in straight sets and is looking sharp. Overall, Medvedev is playing very similar tennis to Cilic based on strong serve. Medvedev also has similar win record on hard compared to Cilic, which translates to nearly 66%, but Russian has played a lot less matches than Cilic did, to experience will be on the Croatian’s side. Daniil had no problems with injuries this season and it seems like he’s fully healthy at this tournament as well. It will be interesting to see how will he be able to handle a lot more experienced Croatian as they have never played against each other before, but in order to win, Medvedev will have to work a lot harder than he did in 2 previous matches.
