Medvedev Setting The Pace

In the Halle Open, Medvedev still hasn’t dropped a set through four rounds, although Oscar Otte gave him a tough go in the first set of their semifinal match. Medvedev needed to stave off a set point in the first set in his 7-6(3), 6-3 semi-final victory over Germany’s Otte, the 51st player in the ATP rankings.

With the victory, Medvedev improved to 7-1 (.875) on the surface this year and 32-15 (.681) during his career. He’s in his second grass-court tournament final in as many weeks. He lost to Tim van Rijthoven last Sunday in the Libema Open, also in Germany.

Medvedev has gone 14-2 on grass since he dropped his opening-round match at Halle a year ago. The Russian player won 75% of his first-service points and 59% of his second-serve points.

Tie(breakers) Go To Hurkacz

Advancing to his first ATP final of the year, World #12 Hurkacz is putting a new spin on that old axiom that the tie goes to the runner. On this tennis court – at least this week – the tiebreakers are going to him.

Beating Nick Kyrgios 4-6, 7-6(2), 7-6(4) in their semifinal match, Hurkacz improved to 5-0 in tiebreakers at this year’s Halle Open. Hurkacz won his quarterfinal match 7-6(2), 7-6(4) over Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime.

His service game is also serving Hurkacz well in Germany. He tied a career-high with 27 aces in the win over Kyrgios. Of that total, 13 came during the decisive third set. He was near 80% in winning points on his serve, going 78% on first serves and 79% on second serves.

Both players rely on their powerful service game to take control of matches. Both are winning over 75% of first service points this week. Winning breakpoints could decide this match as much as any other factor.

Against Kyrgios, Hurkacz wasn’t able to break the Australian’s serve at all. He lost all 17 return games. In fact, Hurkacz has lost 29 return games in a row and 35 of his last 36. Medvedev has saved 22 of 23 breakpoints at Halle.

Medvedev is the slightly more aggressive player and that should also make a difference in what figures to a very close, hard-fought match.

Picks: Daniil Medvedev -250; Medvedev 2-1 (+270)
