Medvedev got the better of Andrey Rublev and Alexander Zverev in straight sets to secure his place in the semi-finals. In the last match of the group stage, he faced Carlos Alcaraz.

Medvedev was the first to get break points in the first set. He had several chances to take a 3-1 lead, but Alcaraz did his best to deny Daniil a break. The Russian was punished for letting his opponent off the hook as Alcaraz went on a three-fight winning streak to improve to 5-3. Alcaraz quickly served successfully for the set. In the second set, Medvedev played second fiddle and gradually lost control of the match. The Russian then lost the last three games of the match and lost with a score of 6-4, 6-4.

Meanwhile, Sinner’s victories over Stefanos Tsitsipas and Novak Djokovic saw him take the lead in the group. However, he still needed to win his match against Holger Rune to win the group and advance to the semi-finals.

In the first set, Sinner led 4-0 then won the first game 6-2. Rune rose in level in the closing stages of the second set to level the score.

Rune was under pressure at the start of the third set and had to save several break points to stay level with Sinner. But he played the match and won it with a score of 6-2, 5-7, 6-4.

In personal meetings with Sinner, Medvedev leads with a score of 6-2. The Italian won the previous encounter at the Erste Bank Open 2023 tournament in Vienna in three sets.
