Daniil Medvedev vs Emil Ruusuvouri predictions
Though Medvedev is in red-hot form this year, he has been struggling on the red dirt. In his own words, his shots, his movement, and his physical appearance doesn’t suit clay and he even claimed of hating the surface. This can give the Finnish player an upper hand over Medvedev. He even pushed Carlos Alcaraz to three sets in Madrid. At the same time, the Russian is yet to win a game at the venue. But his consistency this year can help him to enter the next round.
Prediction: Medvedev in three sets.
