Russia vs France: Preview

Ugo Humbert

The Russian team will be relieved to have the world no.2, Daniil Medvedev, headline their team. Medvedev had an amazing season in 2021, and he even beat world no.1 Novak Djokovic in straight sets at the 2021 US Open. He was the runner-up at the 2021 Australian Open. In his first match at the ATP cup, Medvedev will be facing 23-year-old French player Ugo Humbert, who climbed through rankings himself in 2021 and made his top 25 debut but retired early due to injuries.

In the first bout of this matchup, Russian player Roman Safiullin will play against Arthur Rinderkneck. The Russian is ranked the 163rd in the World whereas the French player is ranked as the 58th in the world. Medvedev will likely pair up with Safiullin for the doubles event, to play against Humbert and Rinderkneck/Martin.

Russia vs France: Prediction

Daniil Medvedev

In the first singles match, Arthur Rinderkneck is likely to take the win as suggested by his ranking which is more than 100 places higher than his opponent Roman Safiullin. The next match will surely be a delight, seeing Medvedev play against Ugo Humbert. Medvedev is most likely to win this match given his striking performance in 2021 and excellent form. Meanwhile in the doubles event too, the Medvedev- Safiullin combination should not struggle much for the victory.

Prediction: Russia to win 2-1.
