ATP Cup 2022: Daniil Medvedev vs. Felix Auger-Aliassime Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 ATP Cup as Daniil Medvedev meets Felix Auger-Aliassime on Saturday January 8th, 2022.

World tennis heavyweights Russia and Canada will do battle here in the Semi-Finals of the 2022 ATP Cup. Both teams have performed extremely well so far here in Sydney and will be hoping for that to continue. Russia are the defending champions and are looking to repeat, even though their team is not quite as strong as it was last year. World number two Daniil Medvedev will lock horns with Felix Auger-Aliassime here at the #1 Singles position, who will get the all-important point for their country?

Daniil Medvedev is ranked number two in the world and will be the leading contender for the Australian Open title, following the news that Novak Djokovic’s participation is in doubt. The Russian started shakily here, losing to Ugo Humbert but rebounded nicely to defeat Alex de Minaur and Matteo Berrettini as he rounds into form. The big Russian has the perfect game for this surface with his powerful serve and accurate groundstrokes so he will be very difficult to beat here. His opponent Felix Auger-Aliassime has also looked sharp so far here at the 2022 ATP Cup and will be a tough opponent for the top ranked player in the competition. Can Medvedev hold his nerve and get the win as expected?

Felix Auger-Aliassime is currently ranked #11 on the ATP Tour and is one of the top young players in the world. The Canadian has improved tremendously over the past few seasons and is seemingly ready to challenge for big titles this season. He is up against it here at the 2022 ATP Cup as he will face possibly the best hard court player in the world in Daniil Medvedev so he will have to be at his absolute best here. He will take heart in the fact that Medvedev showed his vulnerability in his loss to Ugo Hubert, even though he has been much improved since. Auger-Aliassime’s game can trouble the very best, if he can keep his errors to a minimum he will be a very tough opponent here in Sydney.

This will be the third career meeting between the two players with Daniil Medvedev heading the head to head 2-0. They last played at the 2021 US Open with the Russian winning in straight sets en route to the title. Both men have shown flashes of their best here at the 2022 ATP Cup, but have largely been inconsistent and will be hoping to get fully up to speed ahead of the Australian Open. Felix Auger-Aliassime is a very talented player and capable of causing the upset here, but that seems very unlikely. Medvedev is rounding into form, and even though he is not quite at 100% he should get the win here in two tought sets. He has the ability to wear down the young Canadian from the baseline, who is sure to commit numerous unforced errors at times. It won’t be easy, but expect the Russian to get the win here in Sydney.
