Jannik Sinner dismantled Daniil Medvedev 6-1, 6-2 in only one hour and 9 minutes to guide his spot within the 2024 Miami Open remaining.

In a rivalry initially dominated by the Russian (6-0 H2H), Sinner has turned it fully round, successful 5 on the bounce, and Medvedev had no solutions on Friday afternoon.

From holding a 15-30 window in Sinner’s first opening recreation, Medvedev went AWOL, dropping his opening service recreation and shortly discovering himself down 5-0. He loved little to no success within the backhand exchanges and steadily bailed out of the rally on his forehand.

The preliminary dynamic between the pair was Medvedev being too strong from the again of the courtroom, however now Sinner has paired aggressiveness along with his personal solidity, and Meddy looks like his solely choice is to power the difficulty.

That comes with threat, because it’s not his pure recreation. He made too many errors, which Sinner shortly capitalised on.

The ATP and on-screen stats all the time differ, so beneath, it’s logged as 9 unforced errors for Medvedev, however TennisTV recorded 22. Primarily based on what I noticed, the latter might be extra correct.

I additionally suppose Medvedev’s serve has change into a legal responsibility. Final yr, it was a shot he may bag loads of free factors with, however in current months, he’s been damaged far too steadily and has to depend on his different qualities to make up the distinction. At present, he received simply 48% of service factors.

I felt nice on the courtroom at the moment. Normally, the extra you go on in a event, the extra snug I really feel. I’m very proud of this efficiency. He made lots of errors, which he normally doesn’t make. I simply took the possibility. I used to be anticipating a extremely robust match. If he breaks me within the first or second units, it’s already very totally different. Sinner on his dominant win.
