TennisSection previews the 2021 Davis Cup Finals as Daniil Medvedev takes on Pablo Carreno Busta in the Round Robin stage on Sunday, November 28th, 2021.
Will Pablo Carreno Busta continue his good form as he aims to beat a player who he knows he can beat? Will Daniil Medvedev show everyone that although he is in Madrid, he can shut the crowd up quite easily with his amazing tennis? Both players can beat each other, but only one will show their team that they can bring out their best in the pressure moments at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals.
Pablo Carreno Busta had to fight back from a set down in his opening match against Emilio Gomez, eventually winning in 3 sets in a tight tiebreak. For a level of his quality, it should not come down to such a tight match against the World No.149 for Pablo. Pablo will know that his fight back showed some good moments, but he cannot afford to do that against low ranked players, as it will give higher ranked opponents like Daniil Medvedev much more confidence to beat him here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals.
Daniil Medvedev won his match against Emilio Gomez on Saturday with such ease, beating him in straight sets 6-0/6-2 in just 58 minutes. Daniil has played so much tennis this year, and his loss in the Final of the ATP Finals a week ago has not stopped his momentum. Daniil will know that Team Russia are counting on him to get the job done, and with his dominant display, he will feel a lot of confidence in his ability to beat Pablo Carreno Busta who struggled against Emilio Gomez here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals.
Daniil Medvedev and Pablo Carreno Busta have met 6 times before, with Daniil Medvedev leading the head to head 4-2. They met 3 times this year, with Medvedev having won 2 out of 3 encounters. The time Pablo won was when he was representing Team Spain at the Olympics, so I am sure he will be coming out here with that knowledge and confidence. At this moment in time, I would choose Medvedev to dominate this match in any tournament, but because we are in Madrid and Pablo is representing his country, I can see him raising his level. It will be tight, but with Medvedev’s recent form, I can only see Pablo taking a set against the Russian here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals.
