Daniil Medvedev advances to semi-finals in Los Cabos

Daniil Medvedev, who returns to competition in Los Cabos after a month and a half of absence, easily qualified for the semi-finals of the Mexican tournament on hard surface on Thursday, dismissing the Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis (6- 2, 6-2).

Only three points lost on his first serve

” It was (an opposition) very different. My opponent today played much more aggressively. To be honest, against this type of player you sometimes don’t have much to do. You just have to try to serve well, to bring the balls back into the court.he soberly commented.

Which he did very well. In search of a first title this season, he lost only three points on his first serve (8 aces) and took the opposing service four times, twice per set, while saving the two break points offered to his opponent in the first round. He will face in the last four the Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic, 38th in the world, who beat the American Brandon Nakashima (6-2, 6-4). He had won their first confrontation in the third round of Roland-Garros in the spring.
