Medvedev vs Thiem Prediction

Because of his ability to control Thiem’s enormous backhand, the former world number one rarely finds himself on the defensive. Additionally, Medvedev has the advantage when it comes to serving, which will probably give him some extra points. Even if Thiem has made some good strides lately, the Russian should be able to find a way to triumph.
