With the kind of form Daniil Medvedev is carrying heading into the game, it’d be hard to imagine anything other than a regulation Medvedev win. The Russian enjoys playing on the hard court and one would expect that his experience of winning the competition previously would come in handy. Garin would’ve to be firing all cylinders on his serve to stand a chance of competing in the game.
