Reilly Opelka vs Daniil Medvedev: Preview

Reilly Opelka’s 2021 season has started off well, as he has already won his first doubles trophy with Jannik Sinner in the Atlanta Open. The American cruised into the finals by defeating major names like Kyrgios, Bautista, and Tsitsipas. Tsitsipas looked good against him in the first set, but Opelka won the second and third sets with some massive serves. He’d be surely looking to take advantage of his large serves against the Russian in the finals.

Medvedev began his season by reaching the finals of the Australian open. he Russian was unable to make it his first grand slam, losing in straight sets against Djokovic. Medvedev went on to win Open 13 in Marseille, putting him at No. 2 in the ATP rankings. He hasn’t been himself since recovering from the coronavirus. Medvedev made a triumphant return to the American Court. He overcame John Isner in straight sets to go to the finals, where he will meet another American, Reilly Opelka.

Both the players would be aiming to show their strengths in the match that matters. It’s tough to predict who has the high ground because Reilly Opelka has one of the largest serves on the circuit and Daniil Medvedev’s return, groundstrokes, and counterpunching talents are among the greatest in the world.

Medvedev returned Isner’s serve from closer to the baseline than normal during his semifinal victory. So he might know what to do against Opelka’s big serves. Opelka, on the other hand, may be the underdog.

Our prediction: Medvedev to win in a three setter thriller.
