ATP 2022: Daniil Medvedev vs. Alex de Minaur Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 ATP Cup as Daniil Medvedev meets Alex de Minaur on Tuesday January 4th, 2022 at 3:50am EST.

Russia will meet the host nation Australia here at the 2022 ATP Cup held in Sydney. Russian superstar Daniil Medvedev will face Alex de Minaur at the #1 Singles position and the young Aussie will have his hands full with the world number two. Can he feed off the crowd support and cause the stunning upset? Or will Medvedev cruise to victory as expected in his bid to help Russia repeat as champions?

Daniil Medvedev is ranked number two in the world and enters the 2022 season with exceedingly high expectations. The big Russian won his maiden Grand Slam title at the US Open and is probably the top favorite to win the Australian Open in a few weeks. He will need to sharpen his skills here at the 2022 ATP Cup and started quite poorly here in Sydney, going down in three tough sets to the talented Ugo Humbert. Alex de Minaur is going to pose yet another very strong challenge and he is riding high after his opening win over Matteo Berrettini. Medvedev is still the big favorite here but needs to be much improved if he is to turn his fortunes around.

Alex de Minaur is ranked #34 on the ATP Tour and is the Australian #1 player heading into the 2022 ATP Cup in Sydney. He has not been at his best over the past few seasons but is still capable of some world-class tennis, as evidenced by his stunning upset over world number #7 Matteo Berrettini in his opening singles match. His elite defense and movement are major weapons, especially on this surface and he will be full of confidence heading into yet another difficult match, this time against world number two Daniil Medvedev. de Minaur is the big underdog here, but his form and confidence will make him a handful against the Russian star.

This will be the third meeting between the two players with Daniil Medvedev leading the head to head 3-0. However, their matches have always been very close, Alex de Minaur twice leading by a set to love before eventually going down to the world number two. Under normal circumstances we would predict a comfortable win for Medvedev, but he hasn’t looked at his best so far here at the 2022 ATP Cup while de Minaur has been in scintillating form. Despite these factors, we will still back the Russian superstar but it wont be easy. de Minaur is one of the best movers on the Tour and will be a nightmare here at home, but Medvedev should eventually wear him down with his pinpoint accuracy and big groundstrokes.
