Match Medvedev vs Dimitrov begins 06.09.2019 at 22:00 CET
Medvedev didn’t make a big surprise when he reached the semi-finals since the Russian makes fairly results for quite some time now. We recently often had an opportunity to analyse his matches and on several occasions we have listed all what he has achieved this year. The most important thing to mention is that the Russian has currently occupies the 5th place in the ATP rank list, which is the best rating in his career so far.
It is worth mentioning his impressive win/loss ratio that before the US Open stood at 44-16. Besides, Medvedev won two ATP titles this year, which brings the total number of ATP titles to five. S. Wawrinka experienced firsthand fact that Medvedev is in pretty good shape as he couldn't won more than one set in the quarter-finals. The statistic from their match was pretty even, and both players were better in certain segments of the game. Medvedev knew how to use his chances and deservedly reached the semi-finals.
Dimitrov surprised even himself at this year's US Open. The result wouldn’t be a surprise two seasons ago but in past two years Dimitrov played below every level and he came at the US Open occupying the 78th place in the ATP list and having negative win/loss ratio of 12 wins and 15 losses. That says enough why there was very little faith in Dimitrov ability to make a good result at the US Open.
Besides, his opponent in the quarter- final was great Roger Federer who is in a good shape this season. Federer started the match in that style and after half an hour he already had an advantage of 1-0 in sets. If there was a hope that Dimitrov could win in those moments it definitely reached infinitesimal level after the third set when Federer again had a lead of 2-1. We could debate whether Federer totally lost steam in the continuation of match or it was something else, but the fact was that Dimitrov raised the level of his game in an inexplicable way and made a total turnaround.
Betting Pick: Medvedev vs Dimitrov
Medvedev and Dimitrov have played two matches so far and each of them won by one match. Medvedev has made better results this season and he rightfully enjoys the role of a favourite to win. Dimitrov needs to repeat performances displayed against Federer, and perhaps he need to play even better against Medvedev because the Russian is a young player, hungry for success and who on top of it plays very well. Ahead of Dimitrov is equally difficult match like in the quarter-finals, which will be quite exhausting. Therefore, we expect to see Medvedev in the final.
