Medvedev and Tsitsipas crash out as Swiatek survives at French Open

Daniil Medvedev crashed out of the French Open after going down in straight sets 6-2 6-3 6-2 against an inspired Marin Cilic on Monday.

Medvedev was one of two top-four seeds to fall in the fourth round at Roland Garros, with 2021 runner-up Stefanos Tsitsipas beaten by Danish teenager Holger Rune 7-5 3-6 6-3 6-4.

The second seed had arrived in the last 16 unscathed, having reeled off nine sets without reply in the opening three rounds.

He had also won all three of his previous meetings with Cilic ahead of their first encounter on clay.

But the former US Open champion hit the ground running on Chatrier; breaking his opponent twice as he won the last four games of the opening set to draw first blood.

And Cilic did not relent as he built on his momentum in the next two sets to roar through to his third Roland Garros quarter-final – and first in four years.

Next up for the 20th seed is Andrey Rublev, who overcame Jannik Sinner after the Italian was forced to retire through injury at 1-6 6-4 2-0 behind.

Meanwhile, Tsitsipas suffered only his fourth defeat in 21 matches on clay this year after coming unstuck against Rune.

The world number 40 became the first Danish man to reach a Grand Slam quarter-final since Jan Leschly reached the last four of the 1967 US Championships.

Rune sets up a showdown with Norway’s maiden male quarter-finalist at Roland Garros in eighth seed Casper Ruud, who hit 42 winners in his 6-2 6-3 3-6 6-3 victory over Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz.

In the ladies’ draw, top seed Iga Swiatek reached the last eight for a third successive year, but only after coming from behind against Chinese teenager Xinwen Zheng.

Indeed, Swiatek lost the opening set as her opponent recovered from 3-0 to prevail in a tie-break 7-6(5).

However, the world number one dominated the next two 6-0 6-2 to claim her 32nd successive victory; putting her level with Justine Henin for the third-longest streak in the WTA since 2000.

Her reward is a showdown with 11th seed Jessica Pegula, who also overturned a one-set deficit to beat Irina-Camelia Begu 4-6 6-2 6-3 and reach her second successive quarter-final at this event.

Daria Kasatkina continued her hugely impressive run at Roland Garros with a comprehensive 6-2 6-2 win over Camila Giorgi.

The 20th seed has now reeled off eight sets without reply, while dropping just 14 games along the way.

Aiming to stop her in the last eight is Veronika Kudermetova, who extended her best-ever performance at a Slam by overcoming Madison Keys 1-6 6-3 6-1.

Daniil Medvedev looks to reach a second consecutive French Open quarter-final when he faces Marin Cilic at Roland Garros on Monday.

The last-eight line-ups will be confirmed by the close of play on day nine of the season’s second Slam.

US Open champion Medvedev is one of only four players yet to drop a set in the French capital this year, along with Novak Djokovic, Hubert Hurkacz and Holger Rune.

The second seed will aim to continue in that vein against two-time quarter-finalist Cilic, who is targeting a first appearance in the last for four years.

Meanwhile, Danish teenager Rune looks to extend his best run at a Slam but to do so, he will have to inflict only a fourth defeat in 21 matches on clay this season for 2021 runner-up Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Andrey Rublev and Jannik Sinner – both quarter-finalists at Roland Garros in 2020 – seek a return to the last eight two years on when they lock horns, while Hurkacz and Casper Ruud clash on their first appearances in round four here.

The only top-10 seed remaining in the draw, the ladies’ title is very much Iga Swiatek’s to lose.

The world number one is eyeing a 32nd successive victory, but faces a tough test in Qinwen Zheng. In just her second main-draw appearance, the Chinese teenager has already knocked out 2018 champion Simona Halep and home favourite Alize Cornet.

Daria Kasatkina may pose a genuine threat to Swiatek, having dropped just 10 games in her three matches so far.

The 20th seed locks horns with Camila Giorgi, who is making her first appearance at this stage in the French capital after dropping just a single game from a set down against Aryna Sabalenka in round three.

Meanwhile, both Veronika Kudermetova and Irina-Camelia Begu are targeting maiden quarter-final appearances at a Slam. Two American opponents stand in their way in 2018 semi-finalist Madison Keys and 11th seed Jessica Pegula respectively.

Play gets underway at 10am BST on Monday with all ladies’ matches contested over the best of three sets, and all showdowns in the men’s draw played over five sets at Roland Garros.

Miomir Kecmanovic and Daniil Medvedev will go toe-to-toe in the third round of the French Open 2022 on Saturday at 11.30am (UK Time).

Miomir Kecmanovic did well to beat Etcheverry and Bublik in the opening two rounds of the French Open 2022 while dropping just one set. This is the first time the Serb has reached the third round of the French Open after failing in his previous five attempts.

Kecmanovic has been in excellent shape this year, having produced some excellent performances in Rio de Janeiro, Miami and Munich.

In addition, Kecmanovic has done well against top-10 players this year, actually taking a set off Novak Djokovic in Belgrade and forcing a tie-breaker against Nadal in Madrid.

We all know that clay isn’t Daniil Medvedev’s favourite surface, but he already managed to defeat two players that are playing very well on this surface. The Russian began his French Open 2022 campaign with a 3-0 win over Bagnis and then followed this up with a similar result against Djere.

Medvedev has played just one match on clay before entering the French Open 2022, but the good news is that he has reached the 2nd week in his most recent five Grand Slams.

Although Kecmanovic is in a good form at the moment, we fancy Daniil Medvedev to win at odds of 8/13 with Bet365.

Kecmanovic v Medvedev is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 11.30 am BST.

Daniil Medvedev continues his quest for a maiden French Open title when he locks horns with Miomir Kecmanovic at Roland Garros on Saturday.

The world number two is yet to drop a set in his two matches so far; comfortably putting Facundo Bagnis and Laslo Djere to the sword.

Medvedev failed to win a match in each of his first four appearances at the clay-court major, but ended that drought with a run to the quarter-finals last year before losing out to Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Standing in his way of a place in the last is 28th seed Kecmanovic, who is set to appear in round three here for the first time.

Meanwhile, 2021 runner-up Tsitsipas resumes his mission to go the extra step 12 months on against world number 95 Mikael Ymer, who beat Dan Evans to reach this stage for the second year running.

Casper Ruud and Hubert Hurkacz are aiming to advance beyond round three at Roland Garros for the first time when they face Lorenzo Sonego and David Goffin respectively, while Jannik Sinner looks to record a 10th win in 12 matches here against world number 60 Mackenzie McDonald.

Andrey Rublev takes on Cristian Garin in a showdown between the former Junior champions as Marin Cilic and Gilles Simon collide in a battle of the veterans, and rising stars Holger Rune and Hugo Gaston lock horns.

World number one Iga Swiatek, who has dropped just four games so far this week, looks for her 31st successive victory when she plays Danka Kovinic, while third seed Paula Badosa faces Veronika Kudermetova.

Aryna Sabalenka and Camila Giorgi collide with a maiden fourth-round appearance at stake, as former quarter-finalists Daria Kasatkina and Shelby Rogers go head to head.

Jessica Pegula and Elena Rybakina face former Roland Garros semi-finalists in Tamara Zidansek and Madison Keys respectively, while world number 227 Leolia Jeanjean looks to build on her shock victory over Karolina Pliskova when she takes on Irina-Camelia Bagu.

Veteran Alize Cornet, who is appearing in her home Slam for the 18th time, and debutant Qinwen Zheng are also aiming to keep the momentum going after defeating former champions in round two. Cornet beat 2017 winner Jelena Ostapenko as Zheng overcame Simona Halep, who lifted the trophy the following year.

Play gets underway at 10am BST on Saturday with all ladies’ matches contested over the best of three sets, and all showdowns in the men’s draw played over five sets at Roland Garros.

World number two Daniil Medvedev will take on Laslo Djere in the Second Round of the 2022 French Open on Thursday.

Medvedev has not started the season in the way he would have hoped. He lost to Rafael Nadal in five sets at the Australian Open and then lost once again at the hands of the Spaniard in the Semi-Finals in Acapulco.

Despite the fact he took over as world number one earlier this year, the Russian put together a couple of disappointing results in Indian Wells and Miami and he is now back to the second position in the rankings.

Here at the French Open 2022, Medvedev had an easy match against an out-of-form Facundo Bagnis in the opening round, beating the Argentine in straight sets while losing just six games.

Djere has been playing solid tennis on clay courts over the past two months, having won 10 of his last 14 matches on this surface. His best performance during this run was a semi-final appearance in Marrakech where he lost to Alex Molcan in straight sets.

Djere began his French Open 2022 campaign in a strong manner, as he dispatched Ričardas Berankis in straight sets in just two hours and five minutes.

Djere holds a pretty good record in the Second Round matches in the French Open, having won his previous two matches at this stage.

Our prediction for this match is Over 3.5 Sets at odds of 6/10 with Bet365.

Medvedev v Djere is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 11am BST.

Iga Swiatek aims to continue her red-hot form when she plays Alison Riske in the French Open second round on Thursday.

The world number one is the player to beat this week at Roland Garros, where she arrived off the back of 29 consecutive victories.

Champion here in 2020, Swiatek already has five WTA titles to her name this season, and built on her momentum in round one; dropping just two games as she comprehensively swept aside Lesia Tsurenko.

Aiming to stop her in her tracks is world number 43 Riske, who is making her first appearance in the second round here since 2014.

Third seed Paula Badosa also dropped only two games in her first-round win over Fiona Ferro, and will be hoping for a similarly dominant performance against Kala Juvan.

Having overturned a two-set deficit against Lorenzo Musetti in round one, Stefanos Tsitsipas will be eyeing much smoother proceedings when he plays Zdenek Kolar, while Daniil Medvedev takes on Laslo Djere.

Andrey Rublev and Casper Ruud face Federico Delbonis and Emil Ruusuvuori respectively, while 2021 quarter-finalist Jannik Sinner goes head to head with Roberto Carballes Baena.

After avoiding a fourth successive first-round exit at Roland Garros, Hubert Hurkacz will be looking to kick on against Marco Cecchinato, while two-time quarter-finalist Marin Cilic aims to progress beyond round two for the first time since 2018 when he takes on Marton Fucsovics.

2017 champion Jelena Ostapenko is making only her second appearance in round two since lifting the trophy five years ago. The Latvian plays French veteran Alize Cornet, while eighth seed Karolina Pliskova clashes with Leolia Jeanjean.

Aryna Sabalenka takes on Madison Brengle and Danielle Collins faces Shelby Rogers, while Jessica Pegula and Elena Rybakina lock horns with Anhelina Kalinina and Katie Volynets respectively.

Play gets underway at 10am BST on Thursday with all ladies’ matches contested over the best of three sets, and all showdowns in the men’s draw played over five sets at Roland Garros.

Stefanos Tsitsipas launches his quest to go one step better at this year’s French Open when he faces Lorenzo Musetti at Roland Garros on Tuesday.

Tsitsipas was a set away from claiming his maiden Slam in the French capital 12 months ago.

Indeed, he surged into a two-set lead over Novak Djokovic in the final, but suffered a Greek tragedy in the city of love as the Serb fought back to snatch a dramatic victory on Chatrier.

Djokovic also denied Tsitsipas glory in Rome earlier this month, but the Monte Carlo champion boasts an impressive surface record in 2022; winning 14 of his 17 matches on clay.

Daniil Medvedev is also seeking a maiden title at Roland Garros; the reigning US Open champion, who reached the last eight in 2021, plays Argentina’s Facundo Bagnis.

And with Russian players banned from competing at Wimbledon, the second seed will be desperate for a deep run in this Slam before his Flushing Meadows title defence rolls around at the end of August.

Compatriot Andrey Rublev, who faces Soonwoo Kwon, is looking to build on an impressive season that has already yielded three ATP titles.

Eighth seed Casper Ruud begins his mission to progress beyond round three for the first time against home favourite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who will retire at the conclusion of the tournament.

Jannik Sinner – a quarter-finalist last year – aims to maintain his impressive 7-2 record at this event against Bjorn Fratangelo, as Hubert Hurkacz tries to avoid a fourth successive first-round exit when he takes on Giulio Zeppieri.

Meanwhile, 14th seed Denis Shapovalov faces a potential banana skin in Danish debutant Holger Rune, who recently claimed his maiden ATP title in Munich.

Over in the Ladies’ draw, 2017 champion Jelena Ostapenko – also a winner in Dubai this season – has fell at the first hurdle three times in four appearances since lifting the trophy at Roland Garros. The 13th seed looks to redress the balance against Lucia Bronzetti.

Aryna Sabalenka and Jessica Pegula, who face Chloe Paquet and Qiang Wang respectively, are aiming to advance beyond round three for the first time at the season’s second major.

Both are in decent form on clay; Sabalenka was a finalist to Iga Swiatek in Stuttgart, while Pegula was beaten by Ons Jabeur in the Madrid showpiece.

Third seed Paula Badosa plays Fiona Ferro, while Australian Open runner-up Danielle Collins and Wimbledon finalist Karolina Pliskova look to put their recent injury troubles behind them against Viktoriya Tomova and Tessah Andrianjafitrimo respectively.

Play gets underway at 10am BST on Tuesday with all ladies’ matches contested over the best of three sets, and all showdowns in the men’s draw played over five sets at Roland Garros.

Daniil Medvedev and Andy Murray will square off in the 2nd round of the Miami Open 2022 on Saturday at 4.00 pm (UK Time).

Daniil Medvedev has been at the top of the ATP Rankings for just a couple of weeks as he couldn’t hold on to that spot due to recent poor results. The Russian was eliminated from the semifinals of the Acapulco Open a month ago. Then, he lost against Monfils in the third round of the Indian Wells.

Daniil has already won 13 matches on hard courts this year, but he has failed to win any trophy during this run. Medvedev’s results at the Miami Open in his previous three attempts haven’t been great as his best performance was a quarter-final appearance in the last edition in 2021.

Andy Murray has been up and down over the past two months, having won five and lost five of his last ten matches on hard courts. The Scott kicked off the Miami Open tournament with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Delbonis.

The most worrying thing is that Andy has suffered second-round defeats in four successive tournaments. He was eliminated in the second round of the Australian Open, Doha, Dubai and Indian Wells.

Our prediction is Asian Handicap -4.5 on Daniil Medvedev at odds of 8/11 with Bet365.

Medvedev v Murray is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 4.00pm GMT.

Watch Medvedev v Murray in the 2022 Indian Wells Masters live stream on laptop, mobile or tablet devices

Daniil Medvedev will take on Gael Monfils on Monday at 6.00pm (UK Time) in the third round of the 2022 Indian Wells Masters.

After a first-round bye, Daniil Medvedev did well to secure his first victory as World No. 1 after a comfortable 6-3, 6-2 triumph against Tomas Machac. This was actually his first competitive match in March as he hasn’t competed in any other tournament since his 2-0 loss against Rafael Nadal in Acapulco.

The most interesting fact is that Medvedev has never progressed beyond the Round of 16 at Indian Wells. His most recent results at this stage of the competition were two three-set defeats against Carreno Busta and Krajinovic.

The Russian has won four Masters titles so far in his career and did well to reach at least the semifinal in two of his last three attempts at this level.

Meanwhile, Gael Monfils looked incredibly solid at the Australian Open in February. He won four matches in a row before losing in a five-set thriller against Berrettini in the quarterfinals. The Frenchman tried his luck in Montpellier a fortnight ago, but suffered an unexpected first-round loss against Ymer.

The good news is that Gael has returned to winning ways two days ago when he won comfortably against Krajinovic in his opening match of the Indian Wells.

Our prediction for this match is Over 20.5 Games at odds of 5/6 with Bet365.

Medvedev v Monfils is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 6.00pm GMT.

Watch Medvedev v Monfils in the 2022 Indian Wells Masters live stream on laptop, mobile or tablet devices

World No. 1 Daniil Medvedev will take on Tomas Machac in the second round of the 2022 Indian Wells Masters on Saturday at 7.00pm (UK Time).

Although Medvedev didn’t win the Mexican Open a fortnight ago, he still managed to end Novak Djokovic’s dominance at the top of the ATP Rankings. The Russian has won 12 of his 15 matches on hard courts in 2022. Unfortunately, he has failed to win a single trophy during this run.

However, Daniil has been one of the best performers on tour over the past year, having reached at least the quarterfinal in every tournament he has competed in since July 2021.

Daniil’s most recent appearance on the tennis courts was in Acapulco where he lost in straight sets against Rafael Nadal. It was his second loss in one month at the hands of Spaniard, as he was also beaten by Rafa in the final of the Australian Open towards the end of January.

Meanwhile, Tomas Machac has already played 25 matches on hard courts in these first three months of 2022. The 21-year-old player started the year with a trophy in the Traralgon Challenger. Then, he followed this up with participation in the main draw of the Australian Open after winning three matches in the qualifying stage and one on the main draw.

Machac has also played two qualifiers here in Indian Wells where he defeated the likes of Albot and Marchenko. In addition, he demolished Alexey Popyring in the opening round and he is now facing a daunting task against World No.1, Daniil Medvedev.

The worrying thing is that Machac has failed to win both of his 2nd-round matches on the main tour so far this season.

Our prediction for this clash is Under 19.5 Games at odds of 3/4 with Bet365.

Medvedev v Machac is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 7.00pm GMT.
