Match Info

Reigning St. Petersburg Open champion Daniil Medvedev was made to sweat by Richard Gasquet in the first round but he eventually came through in a deciding set and the Russian will be keen to build on that now given that indoor hard courts are his favoured surface. He has some work to do to replicate his fine form in the hard-court swing last season but he will fancy his chances of progressing against Opelka here. The American has had some success on the surface in the past with his powerful serve undoubtedly a fearsome weapon but he lacked rhythm in his three-set win over world number 308 Nino Serdarusic in the first round and that does not bode well for him ahead of this match against the top seed. Medvedev’s superior movement and consistency from the back of the court should wear Opelka down here and the Russian could well advance in straight sets.Daniil Medvedev and Reilly Opelka will play each other in the 2nd round of the St. Petersburg Open for the 3rd time of their career.

Sure he won his opening round match here against Richard Gasquet but Medvedev looked far from convincing in the first two sets against the Frenchman.In the first set Medvedev didn’t earn himself a single break-point and when his opponent held to love to make it 4-3 and then broke the Russian on his third break-point the writing seemed to be on wall.After all, Medvedev had entered the St. Petersburg Open on the back on three losses on the bounce. Since going down to Dominic Thiem in straight sets in the US Open semifinal the world number six had fallen to Ugo Humbert in the first round of the Hamburg Open and then lost to Marton Fucsovics in the French Open opener.Medvedev had last faced such a wretched run in knockout tournaments in May 2019 again on clay before he had come back strongly to go on a hard court rampage. While we are still some way away from that sort of a comeback Medvedev made a smaller one against Gasquet.
After breaking his opponent once in the second set and squaring things off Medvedev then went on a breaking spree to clinch the final set 6-0. Opelka would be a trickier opponent but
