Who will Daniil Medvedev play against in Mallorca

Last year, the Russian won in Spain. But a conflict with the coach can get in the way.

The grass season for Russian tennis players is unusual. Wimbledon was not allowed, so where it was usually possible to take care of ourselves, today our players are giving 100%. The first racket of the world Daniil Medvedev with grass “on you”.

He yelled at the coach and his wife. Why Medvedev’s final turned into hysteria.

In the Dutch Hertogenbosch and the German Halle, Daniil reached the finals, but something didn’t work out in the decisive matches. Ahead of the tournament in Mallorca, where last season Medvedev took the title. Will it be possible to protect him?

Medvedev is the favorite, but there is a problem with the final

Bookmakers consider Daniil the favorite of the tournament. You can bet on his victory with a coefficient of 3.50. And in principle, Medvedev is good. Both in ‘s-Hertogenbosch and in Halle, he played just great. With one amendment – all the magic disappeared somewhere in the decisive matches.

In the Netherlands, he lost to local talent Tim van Reithoven, in Germany – to the Pole Hubert Hurkach. It cannot be said that the opponents showed some kind of phenomenal level of play, rather, the Russian played below his capabilities. Yes, and quarreled with his coach Gilles Servara and his wife. The conflict seems to be settled, but something needs to be done with emotions.

Daniil’s net in Mallorca is not easy. At the start, Aslan Karatsev, who can’t find his game. In Halle, for example, Aslan looked good at the start of the match with Karen Khachanov, but then failed. The situation is not easy, but someday Karatsev will still push off from the bottom. In the meantime, they give a coefficient of 20.00 for his victory in the tournament.

If Medvedev passes his compatriot, then in the quarterfinals he can play with one of his main competitors. Roberto Bautista-Agut is already waiting for an opponent in the 1/8 finals. They will probably be Nick Kyrgios, who needs to beat Laszlo Jere. For the victory of Kiryos in the competition, they give a coefficient of 5.00, and for Bautista-Aguta – 12.00.

Yanchuk: there are alarming notes in Medvedev’s relationship with the coach.

Medvedev played with the Spaniard in Halle and won confidently. The Australian is a dangerous opponent, but extremely dependent on his mood, against his background, the emotions of the Russian are real calmness. So here everything is in the hands of our tennis player.

Who else is in the contenders

The second seed of the tournament is the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, with a coefficient of 5.00 for his victory. The first round Tsitsipas, like all the top four seeded, missed, and in the second round he will meet with Ilya Ivashko from Belarus. And it may well face serious resistance.

Plus, Tsitsipas is ahead of Wimbledon. Let there be no points on it this season, but no one has canceled the prize money and status.

You can bet on Denis Shapovalov from Canada with odds of 10.00. Shapovalov is the third seeded, he will start the tournament with a match with the Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi.

Botik van de Zandshulp’s chances were estimated at 15.00. He has not yet played his first round match against Marcos Giron. And for 20.00 you can bet on the fourth seeded Pablo Carreno-Busta. Yes, grass is not his profile surface, but a home tournament is a home tournament. In the second round, Pablo will face Antoine Bellier from Switzerland.

As you can see, everything is in the hands of Daniil Medvedev. The main task is to cope with your inner demons. Two attempts failed. Maybe a third time?

Bookmakers have estimated the chances of Djokovic winning Wimbledon for the seventh time.

Medvedev: I made an offer to Daria, and immediately began to take off.

Volleyball player Grankin left Germany due to fears for the safety of his family.

Zverev: I will not go to the US Open for one or two matches.

The Russian tennis player changed her citizenship and will perform at Wimbledon.
