Reilly Opelka vs Daniil Medvedev: Prediction and Betting Tips

12:00, Jun 04 2021
Reilly Opelka vs Daniil Medvedev prediction for Friday’s French Open third-round clash at Roland Garros in Paris. World number 35 Reilly Opelka takes on the number to seed Daniil Medvedev in round 1/16 of the French Open. Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Reilly Opelka needs to be at his best

Reilly Opelka has emerged as one of the most improved players on tour. The big American has imposed himself in his recent matches with his big serve and powerful groundstrokes, especially on the forehand side. Opelka has proved he can be a tough opponent to any player after registering important victories on tour in recent weeks.

In his second-round match against Jaume Munar, Opelka had 18 aces, a relatively low number by his standards. His first-serve percentage was 66% winning 75% of the points behind them. Opelka will face a tough test in round three and he needs to be at his best to have a chance against a player of Medvedev”s caliber.

Daniil Medvedev must improve his game in round two

It hasn’t been the best clay season for Daniil Medvedev. The 25-year-old world number two has a 4-4 win/loss record this year on clay including his two wins in the first two rounds of the current French Open. Medvedev was on a 20 match winning streak starting from November last year until he lost to Djokovic in the Australian Open final.

Medvedev had a good first-round performance against Bublik winning in straight sets. In his second-round match against American Tommy Paul, the Russian lost the first set after some uncharacteristic errors. He then took control of the match and made more winners that reached 30 in the whole game. Medvedev must be more focused as his opponent is not an easy customer.

Key Points

  • Opelka is averaging 33 games per match in this year’s french open
  • Opelka has hit 61 and 36 winners in his first two matches 
  • Medvedev is averaging 34.5 games per match in his first two matches
  • Medvedev has hit 30 and 28 winners in his first two matches in this year’s French Open

Reilly Opelka vs Daniil Medvedev Prediction

Despite not playing his best tennis yet, Medvedev reached the third round of the 2021 French Open but he needs to be at his best from now on as the opponents get tougher and he may not get away with the mistakes he’s been making in recent matches.

Opelka’s game revolves around his first serve and winners. If the American serves over 75% of his first serves in, he will be tough to beat. Medvedev will have to attack Opelka’s second serve every time he gets the chance. 

All previous three H2H matches went the distance and we expect this one as well to be a close match and played in over 38 games.
