de Minaur bounced by Medvedev

Australia’s Alex de Minaur faced 2021 US Open champion in the fourth round.

de Minaur dominated the first set with two breaks of serve helping him take the opener 6-2.

Medvedev lifted the tempo in the second set and was able to break in the tenth game to take the set 6-4.

It was the former champion that was now playing with authority and he raced to a 6-1 result to take the third set.

Medvedev had won 14 of the 16 games since it was 4-4 in the second set and he cruised to a victory over the Australian, taking the match 2-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-2.

In the end de Minaur was well outclassed despite showing much promise in the opening set.

If only he held serve at 4-4 and took it to the breaker to try for a 2-0 sets lead.

Medvedev advances to face Rublev, for de Minaur it was a solid tournament without achieving a breakthrough that he desires.
