To have more insights on this ATP Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Daniil Medvedev match, please check out the preview below.
21 years old, currently 7th ranked Greek made the impossible look possible by defeating the defending champion of this tournament, Novak Djokovic in the quarter-final. Djokovic has been playing incredibly well and hasn’t shown any weaknesses for a while, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Tsitsipas today. Not only did Stefan win that match, but he also did it from being down a set after losing the first one. It’s amazing how this young guy manages to show all he has in matches that matter the most while sometimes struggling against a lot of weaker opponents. With the victory today Tsitsipas also locked in his spot in ATP Nitto Finals, London later this year. Tsitsipas is on the roll now and if he manages to keep the same level of intensity we might see him upsetting the favourite tomorrow as well.
23 years old, currently 4th ranked Russian is once again dominating after losing against Nadal in the final the of US Open. Now he’s on the 7 win streak without losing a single set both in Saint Petersburg and here, at Shanghai. Medvedev has struggled against V. Pospisil and were close to finally losing the set, but even then he managed to turn on the higher pace and overcome the deficit. It’s amazing to see this guy improving that much in a single season and it doesn’t seem like he’s going to stop anytime soon. Everything is working for this guy, starting with the serve and ending up with the strong forehand and playmaking. He’s the favourite for tomorrow’s match, but Tsitsipas will definitely be the strongest competition in this tournament so far.
