Daniil Medvedev (27, Russia, world No. 7) overcame ‘flawless’ Novak Djokovic (36, Serbia, world No. 1) in three men’s professional tennis (ATP) tour tournaments advanced to the finals in a row.
Medvedev defeated Djokovic 2-0 (6-4 6-4) in the singles semifinal of the ATP Tour 500 Series Dubai Duty Free Championship held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the 4th (Korean time).
Medvedev won the ATP Tour 500 Series Amro Open, which ended on the 20th of last month in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He went on to top last week at the Qatar Exxon Mobil Open in Doha, Qatar, where he won for the second week in a row.
He also made a success at the Dubai Championships, and succeeded in advancing to the finals for three weeks in a row by defeating the ‘giant’ Djokovic. Medvedev, who has recently won 13 consecutive wins, continued his unstoppable rise with a record of 18 wins and 2 losses this season.
Medvedev, the 2021 Australian Open winner, was eliminated in the third round at this year’s Australian Open. However, after winning 13 consecutive victories on the ATP Tour, he came one step closer to his third win this season. 온라인카지노
Djokovic won the Australian Open this year, claiming his 22nd Grand Slam title of his career. In this Dubai Championship, he reached the semifinals and ran a 15-game winning streak this year, but was caught by Medvedev.
Medvedev recorded 5 wins and 9 losses against Djokovic. He defeated Djokovic in the 2021 US Open final to lift the championship cup. At that time, Djokovic was on the verge of achieving the Calendar Grand Slam (winning all four Grand Slam events in one year), but lost to Medvedev and missed the record.
However, after that, he fell into a four-game losing streak against Djokovic. Medvedev, who took revenge in this tournament, will face off against fellow countryman Andrei Rublev (26, Russia, 6th in world rankings) for the championship.
Rublev defeated Alexander Zverev (26, Germany, world number 16) 2-0 (6-3 7-6<11-9>) in the semifinal match.
Medvedev and Rublev have an advantage with Medvedev with 4 wins and 2 losses. The most recent competition between them was the group stage of the ATP Finals held in November last year. Rublev won the match 2-1 (6-7<7-9> 6-3 7-6<9-7>) after a close match.
