Red-hot Medvedev beats Tsitsipas to reach Shanghai final

12 Octobre, 2019, 19:56 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • Stefanos Tsitsipas left of Greece is congratulated by Novak Djokovic of Serbia after winning in their men's singles quarterfinals match at the Shanghai Masters tennis tournament at Qizhong Forest Sports City Tennis Center in Shanghai China Friday

Federer and Djokovic had been a combined 13-0 in Shanghai with a spot in the semifinals on the line, but both lost Friday.

Federer received a code violation in the loss.

However, the 32-year-old has seen a steady improvement in his form and quality of play in recent weeks.

A handicap line can be considered, but given Tsitsipas' propensity to play tight sets, it would be much more risky than simply the match win position on Medvedev here.

"I told him at the net that he showed great character, that he was strong", said the 20-time grand slam champion.

And it was in that final set when Federer had a point deducted for unsportsmanlike conduct when he hit the ball into the air after losing a point, with a tense stand-off with the umpire following. Federer was given a point penalty for twice smacking the ball into the crowd in frustration.

"So you can write on Twitter you mean?" he said in response to a reporter's question.

"I don't think Roger Federer's game suits anybody to be honest".

The 22-year-old Zverev now leads Federer 4-3 in career meetings. "It's exciting. They're great".

Zverev will next play Matteo Berrettini, an 11th-seeded Italian who defeated fourth-seeded Dominic Thiem 7-6 (8), 6-4.

The Greek Tsitsipas dumped out reigning champion Djokovic, who until that point had looked imperious in Shanghai and did not drop a set in winning the Tokyo title last week.

He said: "The five match points I had in the second set - them going away and still knowing I can win in three sets is very important, especially against someone like Roger because normally he doesn't let go of these kind of matches".

Tsitsipas advanced with a win over Djokovic.

Tsitsipas has beaten the best player in the world to reach the Shanghai Masters semi-finals, as well as qualifying for the ATP Tour finals. Hard court data this year shows the duo having nearly identical service points won numbers, but Medvedev winning nearly 7% more return points - a huge advantage - and given that he's had historical success against Tsitsipas in their previous meetings, all of which are from 2018 onwards, there's a strong case to suggest he's value for a small stake at market lines.

He then played his first singles match in August at the Cincinnati Masters but lost in the first round. "The head-to-head is obviously a great thing to have, but more importantly for me is it was a match to maybe turn my year around a little bit, and the Race to London is also very important", Zverev said.

"If some top players like Fabio can say this about me, shows that I'm on the good way, I'm playing good, and it's not easy to play against me", Medvedev said.
