TennisSection previews the 2022 Vienna Open as Daniil Medvedev takes on Grigor Dimitrov in the semifinals on Saturday, October 29th, 2022.
Will Daniil Medvedev get the win? Will Grigor Dimitrov pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have the top seed and overwhelming favorite to claim the title taking on a player who can produce some magic at his best. Who will triumph and move through to the final at the 2022 Vienna Open?
Daniil Medvedev took down Jannik Sinner with amazing play, defending out of his mind and serving incredibly well. Medvedev read Sinner’s game perfectly and was able to take his opportunities when presented to him. Still not having lost a set or been taken past 6-4, Medvedev will be incredibly confident heading into this contest with Grigor Dimitrov. Unless Dimitrov plays out of his mind, he’ll have no shot in the end as Medvedev looks to close in on yet another final here at the 2022 Vienna Open.
Grigor Dimitrov took out Marcos Giron in 3 tough sets, and despite his incredible play to upset Rublev in the 2nd round, Dimitrov struggled where he shouldn’t have. If he wants even a small chance at taking out Daniil Medvedev, he’ll need to serve incredibly well and play big, first strike tennis. I doubt Medvedev will allow himself to be blown off the court though, as his defense is second to none at the moment and will help propel him to the final match of the 2022 Vienna Open.
Daniil Medvedev and Grigor Dimitrov have met five times before, with Daniil Medvedev leading the head to head 3-2.While Dimitrov was able to take out Medvedev once in 2017 in the best season of his career while Medvedev was still yet to break into the top 100, and the fact that he got a very impressive win in Indian Wells last year, coming back from 4-6 1-4 down to take it, Medvedev has dominated their other matches and I expect him to do so once more. He’s looking unbelievably solid towards the latter stages of 2022 as he looks to advance to the trophy match at the 2022 Vienna Open.
