Match Predict – Handicap (-5.5) for Medvedev
O’Connell had a bit of luck in previous matches. The Australian could have shut his racquet against Bautista Agut, but he got lucky. It won’t be the same for Medvedev. The Russian is by far the better player, so Christopher will probably not be able to put up much of a fight against Daniil.
Total Games Under 20
Medvedev left no chance for the Australian in the US Open in 2020. The Russian then handled Christopher reasonably well. It is unlikely that O’Connell will be able to do better now.

Medvedev failed to make a good start to the season. The Russian failed to perform well in Adelaide and at the Australian Open. In the first, he reached the semi-finals, while in the second, he shuffled off in the third round.
Daniil, meanwhile, was seeded and started in the second round of the Qatar Open.
In the first match, Medvedev defeated Liam Broady (6-4, 6-3).
He was not crushed as expected. Moreover, the Russian was losing with a break in the first set.
Medvedev, however, recovered very quickly, but the game was still a nervous one. In the second set, Daniil calmly grinded his way to victory.
Medvedev’s winning streak now stands at six games. Last week, he took the title in Rotterdam, defeating Jannik Sinner (5-7, 6-2, 6-2) in the final encounter.
Medvedev has won ten consecutive matches as a clear favourite.
