Tennis. Indian goods. Semi final. Medvedev – Tiafoe. Direct

Late in the evening of Saturday March 18, Russian No. 1 Daniil Medvedev will face American Francis Tiafoe for a ticket to the final of the Masters tournament, which takes place these days in Indian Wells. At present, our tennis player has an 18-match winning streak in the ATP Tour. Can an American stop Medvedev? So far, Francis Tiafoe has failed to defeat Daniel.

The American is now at the top of his game. A little over a month ago, Tiafoe achieved a personal best, rising to 14th place in the ATP rankings, and for now he maintains this position. However, it should be noted that at the current Masters, Francis had only one top opponent. In the quarterfinals of the tournament, the representative of the United States confidently dominated the first racket of Great Britain – Cameron Norrie (6: 4, 6: 4), which is three notches higher in the ATP ranking. So Tiafoe is of course strong, but his real strength will be demonstrated in a duel against an opponent like Daniil Medvedev.

As for our tennis player, Medvedev has not known the bitterness of a defeat on the circuit for a month and a half. The most difficult fight for Daniil at the current Masters was the meeting with Alexander Zverev in the 1/8 finals, when the Russian could only finish off the representative of Germany in the third set (6:7, 7: 6, 7:5). But in the semi-finals, Medvedev relatively easily faced Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich-Fokina (6:3, 7:5).

Between them, Medvedev and Tiafoe met four times at the professional level. Either way, the Russian tennis player won. Interestingly, three of the four games played were in tournaments taking place in the United States. And today, tennis players meet in the same place. Daniel and Francis last met at the Miami Masters almost two years ago. Then the Russian won a confident victory – 6: 4, 6: 3. The only match in which Medvedev and Tiafoe competed outside the American continent was at the Australian Open 2020. And this was the only fight in which Francis took a set from Daniel. But in general, the Russian confidently won this meeting – 6:3, 4:6, 6:4, 6:2.
