ATP Rogers Cup Day Six Tips: Market aware of Medvedev's continued improvement

The eighth-seeded Medvedev needed just under 57 minutes to finish off the No. 2 seed from Austria at the US$5.7-million ATP Tour Masters 1000 series event. But a recounting of Nadal's pedigree won't tremble Medvedev, who's into his first Masters 1000 final and has won eight of his past nine matches.

The French-speaking Medvedev, cheered on by a partisan crowd, finished off a tired-looking Thiem 6-3 6-1 to end the Austrian's six-match winning streak in under an hour.

The Spaniard went on the win the match and will face Gael Monfils for a spot in the final.

Expect an exciting semi-final here, with Medvedev qualifying for his first ever ATP Masters 1000 final.

12 month data isn't quite as impressive though, and would make his [1.52] market price a little short, and as I've said before, Khachanov's solid but unspectacular win percentage this year has been affected by losing an absurd amount of tiebreaks (he's won around a third of tiebreaks in the last 12 months and a similar percentage this season). That's basically the only chance to beat him. "It's just a logical score and result after what happened today".

I had opportunities to break back the following game. I'm playing tennis for that, for the big moments, big shows.

On the return games, I didn't have enough energy to win.

"I'm very exhausted and I hurt myself in the second set".

After the morning match, Monfils didn't sound too confident about playing against the 33-year-old Nadal.

Medvedev's semifinal opponent will be countryman Karen Khachanov. The match is scheduled from 3 pm local time (8 pm August 10 BST) and you can find the Daniil Medvedev v Karen Khachanov live streaming options along with its preview, head to head and tips here. "We played all the tournaments since 12 or 14", Khachanov said.

"I was happy that I fought no matter what", noted Monfils, who said earlier in the week he was not 100 per cent physically.

"From one side it's hard, but ... we know what to expect, how we are playing completely different styles". "I think you should accept it and still enjoy the atmosphere". "Before the match, I hadn't thought about that, but I quickly understood it was going to be the match for me to become the top one in Russian Federation, maybe top eight in the world".
