TennisSection previews the 2022 Halle Open as Daniil Medvedev takes on Ilya Ivashka in the Round of 16 on Thursday, June 16th, 2022.
Will Daniil Medvedev get the win? Will Ilya Ivashka pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have a rematch from Ligema. Who will triumph and move on to the quarterfinals at the 2022 Halle Open?
Daniil Medvedev looked a lot better than in the finals of Ligema, swiftly dismissing David Goffin, a formidable opponent on the grass. He served great and maintained the right level of aggression and focus, and he’ll be able to use that well against Ilya Ivashka. He’s the heavy favorite in this match, and there is almost nothing I see that will stop him from taking this one at the 2022 Halle Open.
Ilya Ivashka took down local Jan-Lennard Struff in 3 sets, a great win on the grass. Daniil Medvedev will be a whole other beast though, let alone being the World No. 1 and heavy favorite in the matchup, but just taking a look at both the players’ results as of late, Ivashka doesn’t have the game to counter Medvedev, let alone the form as he hopes for some luck to advance to the last eight at the 2022 Halle Open.
Daniil Medvedev and Ilya Ivashka have met three times before, with Daniil Medvedev leading the head to head 2-1. Their 1st meeting came in 2018, long before Medvedev was truly at the peak of his powers. Their next 2 matches were both tight straight set losses for Ivashka, but with how Medvedev played in the first round, especially since they just met, I expect Medvedev to cruise through to the quarterfinals of the 2022 Halle Open.
