The Americans are waiting for the winner of the ATP Masters 1000 as of March 2018 and the victory of John Isner in Miami. On Sunday, that prediction could have ended by Reilly Opelka, but he lacked skills. In the final in Toronto, the 23-year-old from Michigan, who made his debut in a match with such a stake, lost 4:6, 3:6 with favorite Danilo Medvedev.

Medvedev played almost identically to Saturday’s semi-final against another American, Isner. First of all, he served efficiently and played with great confidence from the finish line. He also had great returns, which prevented Opel from scoring many points with a pass.

But the start was not easy. The fifth match in which he lost 0-40 was a warning sign for Medvedev. He motivated him enough that he not only kept the serve, but after a while smashed his opponent after striking back with a great backhand. Thanks to this, the Russian led 3:2 and won the first set 6:4.

In the second match, a tennis player from Moscow hit Opelchi again and it was 3:1. Then he kept his pass until he scored a match ball in the ninth inning. Then it led to an exchange, in which the American hit the net from a forehand.

The match lasted an hour and 25 minutes. Meanwhile, Medvedev sent six aces, did not break once, used four break points for his seven, made 16 goals, committed 13 unforced errors, and scored a total of 73 points, 16 more than his opponent. On the other hand, Opelsi had eight aces, 22 aces and 34 special fouls

For the 25-year-old Medvedev, this is the 12th title on the main course in his career, and the fourth in the ATP Masters 1000. Bonus in dollars.

Opelka, on the other hand, performed in his third World Cup Final on the ATP Tour and suffered his first defeat. For participation in the National Bank Open, he will receive 600 “points”, thanks to which he will enter the highest rating of “30” for the first time, 211 thousand. dollar.

In the doubles final, he defeated Rajiv Ram and Joe Salisbury 6:3, 4:6, 10-3 with top seed Croatian pair Nikola Mektic/Mate Pavic and won the joint fourth and first title of the “1000” series. Overall, the Ram, 37, is the 21st trophy in the doubles session and Salisbury, 29, is sixth.
