Daniil Medvedev vs John Isner: Preview
Medvedev has truly sensational at the National Bank Open. He started off by defeating Bublik in three hard-fought sets and followed it with an easy win against James Duckworth in straight sets. However, the way Hubert Hurkacz stretched him in the quarter-finals would have shaken his confidence just a bit.

On the other hand, Isner has been terrific and dominating at the Canadian Open. He has dropped just one set throughout the tournament. Moreover, the way he defeated Monfils in straight sets in the quarter-final goes on to show that this unseeded player is here to win.
