Daniil Medvedev vs Pablo Carreno Busta: Prediction
Pablo Carreno Busta has also been in immaculate form in the Mallorca Open. His serves have been hard to handle and his attacking instincts have kept the opponents out of the game. However, he is not going to find it easy against the top-seeded Daniil Medvedev.
Daniil is clearly the favorite in the contest. He has looked comfortable on the grass court and is expected to make his way into the finals. However, Pablo would not go down without a fight. This is expected to be a nail-biter.
Prediction: Daniil Medvedev to win in three sets.
