Danio Medvedev returned to the leaderboard before the tournament in Halle. In Germany, it is difficult to make mistakes at his disposal. So far, none of the competitors have been able to break any combination of it. Will Hubert Hurcacz be able to change him?
There is a good chance of that, because so far the tennis players have faced each other four times. In every match, the Pole won at least one set. He was able to win twice, and Muscovites could also boast the same number of victories.
The pole is the leader in these balance sheets
This season, the two met in Miami. Hurkacz was the winner there, winning 2-0. In addition to the positive balance this year, the Wroclaw native can also boast a victory over Medvedev on the grass. He did it during Wimbledon last year. It is already known that there will be no chance of a rematch in Great Britain.

Russian media warns Medvedev
Russian media have already commented on the upcoming confrontation. They feel respect for the pole, because it was confirmed that in the duel with Nick Kyrgios, the 25-year-old tied his personal record of aces (27). Another gate drew attention to the pace of cracks in the match with Hurkacz. Interestingly, the Wrocław player has not lost a set yet, as the final was decisive.
Their only match on grass was also mentioned, as the Moscow tennis player did not score a set and unexpectedly bid farewell to Wimbledon faster than expected.
A rival leader in the ranking? “I’m very happy”
– I am very happy that I will be able to face Danio in the final (Medvedev – opening note) – Hubert Hurkacz said of the final contender. – It’s definitely going to be a fun match (starts at 15:00 – editor’s note). We always play close matches – he added.
The electrode’s reaction says it all. He is ready for this game and expects the next game to be played until the end of each ball. With Szlem coming in, such a duel might allow Hurkacz to achieve another good result in Great Britain.
The candidates were not satisfied in the last two meetings with Hurkacz after the match. Felix Auger-Aliassime and Kyrgios both had to acknowledge the 25-year-old’s superiority. Will Medvedev join this group? We’ll find out in a dozen hours or so.
The broadcast will be broadcast on Polsat Sport. Live coverage will be conducted through the WP SportoweFakty portal.
