Medvedev is the clear favourite in this pairing and we believe he will quietly confirm his status in the upcoming meeting.
Preliminary review and match prediction for Daniil Medvedev vs Rinky Hijikata
Medvedev will play his first match after a pause that arose in his schedule due to the Russian’s exclusion from Wimbledon.
Unlike Andrey Rublev, Daniil has declined the opportunity to play in Bastad and Hamburg, concentrating on preparing for the American series.
For Medvedev, the coming month and a half will be crucial. A year ago, he won the Masters in Toronto and became US Open champion as well as reaching the semi-finals in Cincinnati. That means he now has many points to defend.
Medvedev has not won a single tournament so far this season. He lost in the Australian Open final and lost the decisive matches in Hertogenbosch and Halle.
Medvedev has had a successful start to eight of his nine tournaments this season.
"For sure I’m watching [the battle for No 1] a little bit. Depends also the moment because I know at the end of the year, unless I try to win every tournament that is left, it’s probably going to be Rafa Nadal for year-end No 1."
