Daniil Medvedev qualified for the final of the Los Cabos tournament

Daniil Medvedev, the world No. 1, qualified with authority for the final of the Los Cabos tournament (Mexico) on Friday after beating Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic (7-6 [0], 6-1), ranked him, 38th at ATP, in half. The Russian will try to win a first title this season on the ATP circuit, against the Briton Cameron Norrie, who dismissed the Canadian Félix Auger-Aliassime (6-4, 3-6, 6-3).

Proven ramp-up

Medvedev confirmed his rise in power, facing an opponent who was tough during the first set. Kecmanovic indeed broke the first to escape (at 4-1), but Medvedev then reacted, to call back at 4-4, after several high-flying exchanges. The Serbian player was able to stay in the game, after being annoyed to hear fireworks in the sky of Los Cabos, but then cracked in the tie-break.

Relying on a serve (12 aces in total), Daniil Medvedev did not loosen the noose in the second set, going it alone effectively to finally win in 1:27. ” The match was very difficult, he commented. (Miomir Kecmanovic) started well and the first set was of a great level. So many difficult points, so many points where I felt I was close to taking the lead. But, in the end, the tie-break was brilliant. »
