Richard Gasquet - Daniil Medvedev. ATP US Open Prediction (August 31, 2021)
Richard Gasquet will play with Daniil Medvedev in the first round of the US Open on August 31. What is the scenario for the upcoming fight? - read our forecast.
Gasquet, frankly, was not lucky with the lot. The 35-year-old French tennis player is unlikely to physically pull out the upcoming match against Medvedev.
Although, in general, Richard had a good preparation for the New York major. The Frenchman managed to reach the quarterfinals in Winston-Salem. Gasquet beat Yegor Gerasimov (6-7, 6-7) and Daniel Evans (4-6, 6-7) at the start of the tournament, but then lost to Emil Ruusuvori (6-7, 1-6) in two sets.
Upcoming Predictions for Tennis
Medvedev is a 2019 US Open finalist and a New York Major semifinalist last season. Daniil loves to play on the American hard, so we should expect him to perform productively at the upcoming tournament.
Moreover, the Russian is now in excellent shape. Medvedev won the Masters in Toronto in mid-August, and just recently Daniil qualified for the semifinals of the competition in Cincinnati.
Medvedev is superior to Gasquet in many aspects of the game, so Daniil should not have any particular difficulties in the upcoming meeting. The last personal meeting between the tennis players took place last year in St. Petersburg, when Medvedev beat Gasquet in the decisive game 6-0. We expect a confident victory for Daniil in the upcoming confrontation.
Our prediction is Medvedev's victory with a handicap (-9) games for a coefficient of 2.09 on 1xbet.
