Daniil Medvedev delivered a big blow to Novak Djokovic in the ATP Dubai semifinals and is now aiming for his third tournament victory in a row.
Medvedev will face fellow Russian, and defending Dubai champion, Andrey Rublev, in the final. Rublev put in a very good display to knock out Alexander Zverev in the semifinal, and this run was a much needed confidence booster for the #2 seed as he was on a really poor run.
The head-to-head between these two sees Medvedev lead 5-2, but importantly, Rublev has actually won the last two. The last encounter was at the ATP World Tour finals last year where Rublev won two tiebreaks to take the victory.
However, Medvedev is in a completely different run of form right now. The 2021 US Open Champion has won 13 matches in a row, including the Montpellier and Rotterdam finals in the last two weeks. Medvedev definitely goes into this as the rightful favourite, and if he locks in from the back of the court as well as he did against Djokovic then it is difficult to see how Rublev wins this.
The match gets underway at around 3pm GMT on Saturday and will be contested over the best of three sets.
