These contrasting circumstances weren’t evident within the first set, which was a close-run affair solely separated by Alcaraz developing with stable play below strain to take the opener.

The second set was extra comfy for the Spaniard, with it being virtually unattainable for Medvedev to not have one eye on the semi-final fairly than slogging out an energy-draining three-set win.

Does that imply he tanked? No, however psychologically, it isn’t straightforward not to consider vitality conservation throughout that second set. Had Medvedev gained the primary set, that will have modified issues totally, and he’d probably have put his foot on the fuel to attempt to preserve his profitable momentum heading into the knockout levels.

The ultimate group standings imply Alcaraz will face Djokovic whereas Medvedev will face off in opposition to Sinner on Saturday.

I feel a very powerful factor that I did right now was to remain robust mentally. There have been a number of video games on my serve that I used to be struggling a bit. His return sport is superb and he places a lot strain in your serve, so I feel to remain calm and keep robust mentally in these moments was the important thing to provide myself an opportunity to win this match.
