Daniil Medvedev vs Aslan Karatsev Prediction
Looking at the current form of both players, Karatsev is a slight favorite coming into this match. The world number 27 has played more games on clay and has more wins.
Daniil Medvedev lost that form that he was in at the end of last season. But the world number two is expected to get his dorm back and that could be anytime.
We think it will be a close match. Medvedev is a fighter and he won’t give in easily even if he is not on form. We thus predict an over 22.5 total games.
