Medvedev - Tsitsipas
Medvedev suffered a shock first round defeat at the Paris Masters to France’s Jeremy Chardy – a result that ended his bid for a seventh straight final and his winning streak of 19 consecutive sets. However, the World No.4 will be expectant to get back to winning ways on his debut appearance at the ATP Finals when he faces Stefanos Tsitsipas–a player he has not lost to in five meetings.
Tsitsipas, like Medvedev, has put together a breakthrough season on the mainstream with two more ATP tour titles to his resume, a first-time Grand Slam semifinal appearance at the Australian Open, and a place at the season-ending championships among other incredible achievements. But despite all those significant landmarks in his burgeoning career, Tsitsipas has not looked remotely close to solving the Medvedev riddle. The two players were involved in an infamous spat at the Miami Masters in 2018, but they would later confess to feeling no animosity towards each other.
This is very much an open group especially when you consider Nadal’s injury concerns. Medvedev is a clear favorite I would say.
