MATCH PREVIEW

Finally Medvedev is Winning at Roland Garros

Daniil Medvedev is a bit like one of those explorers centuries ago. The number two seed is in uncharted territory at Roland Garros. He takes on Reilly Opelka in the third round of the French Open. Not bad for a player who before this event began he had lost in the first round of all four previous visits.

More uncharted territory could be on its way later in this tournament. If he makes it to the final and Novak Djokovic doesn't, then Medvedev will become the new world number one. He'll do that if winning the event regardless of what Djokovic does here. It's still hard to believe though that the Russian is a possible French Open champion.

His clay court season this year has been a rather uneventul one until now. He played two tournaments, winning once and losing the other two. Medvedev did reach the last four in the Monte Carlo Masters two years ago, so he has got some ability on a surface he admits to hating.  

The first round of this tournament saw him finally get a win at Roland Garros beating Andrey Bublik in straight sets. That meant for only the second year in his career, he'd managed to win more than one match on clay. Another win came in the second round as he defeated Tommy Paul in four sets, after losing the first one. Now he takes on Opelka with the winner facing either Marcos Giron or 20th seed Cristian Garin in the last 16. He still faces a major battle to get to the final with Zverev, Ruud and Tsitsipas in his half of the draw.

Opelka Knows how Medvedev Feels

 

Reilly Opelka is the 32nd seed but ranked 35th in the world. The big-hitting American is 6ft 11in and has risen four places in the rankings this year.  He also has had his problems at Roland Garros in the past. Like Medvedev, he arrived in Paris wondering whether this year might be the one when he finally wins a match in the main draw.

Before this tournament, his 2021 record was 6-9, not the best. He had a disappointing start to the year and only in Rome had he put in anything like a good show. The 23-year-old hadn't won more than one match in a tournament until somehow discovering his form and in a Masters tournament too.

Opelka had four wins, the highest ranked player being Aslan Karatsev who was world number 27 at the time. He made it to the last four before losing to Rafael Nadal, though he did take eight games off the Spaniard. He didn't build on that though, losing to Pablo Cuevas (ranked 102) in his first match.

Finally, he got his first main draw win at Roland Garros beating Andrej Martin in straight sets. That was followed by a four-set win (third set lost) victory over Jaume Munar. He's had three previous matches against Medvedev losing two of them but he did win the most recent one last year. This is their first meeting on clay. Opelka has a chance here but Medvedev must be growing in confidence. He can get the win, probably in four sets but the Russian still has a lot to do to convince anyone he can win this tournament.
