After beating Karatsev, Medvedev will face Roberto Bautista Agut, the world No.20. The men played each other on grass in Hull nearly a week ago and that encounter was won in two sets by Daniil. It is logical that the number one in the ATP rankings is the favorite for the upcoming game.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Medvedev is one of the brightest characters on the grass part of the season. Probably the only brighter one is Berrettini who won two tournaments. Medvedev has no trophies yet, but Daniil has two finals in Hertogenbosch and Hull. We should also remind you that last season Daniil won a tournament in Mallorca, of course, Medvedev will try to defend the points he scored last year. On the islands, Medvedev played one, but not an easy match against Aslan Karatsev, his compatriot and national team partner. We had thought that Daniil had a good chance to win in two sets, but it did not work out, as Daniil lost the first set, but bounced back to win two sets in a row. The match lasted two hours and 19 minutes, Medvedev had 10 aces and five doubles and won 79% of his points on first serve and 42% on the second serve. The rebound percentage was 31%/49%. We also need to mention that this win against Karatsev was the first in Daniil's career. Before that, Medvedev always lost to Aslan.
Roberto Bautista Agut
This will be the Spaniard's fifth match on grass in his career. Could have been his sixth, but Nick Kyrgios pulled out citing an injury. Roberto had three previous tournaments in Hull where he lost to Medvedev in three sets. In Mallorca, Bautista Agut beat Japanese Daniel in two games and did so very handily.
Daniel and Roberto played four times, the Spaniard won three times on hard courts in Chennai, Cincinnati, and Miami. A week ago on the grass in Hull, Daniel earned his first win over Roberto, a convincing victory in two sets. The match lasted one hour and 26 minutes, 6-2, 6-4.
Expert Betting Tips
Medvedev failed to defeat Karatsev in two sets. However, it must be noted that it was the first grass-court match in Mallorca for Daniil. It is logical that Daniil needed time to adapt, while Karatsev already had practice playing on these courts, which probably brought about such a result. A week ago Medvedev confidently defeated Roberto, and since then the World No. 1 has not gotten any weaker. Plus let's not forget that Daniil is on a trip to the islands to defend his title, of course, Medvedev will try to repeat last year's success.
