TennisSection previews the 2022 Paris Masters as Daniil Medvedev takes on Alex de Minaur in the Round of 32 on November 2nd, 2022.
Will Daniil Medvedev get the win? Will Alex de Minaur pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where the favorite to come through the top half takes on a tough first round opponent. Who will triumph and move through to the Round of 16 at the 2022 Paris Masters?
Daniil Medvedev has been playing some great tennis, a great raise in level from a tough season overall. Coming off the title in Vienna, I don’t expect Mededev to be all too tired, and I definitely expect his confidence to be high. He knows he’s the man to beat in his half, and he’s going to want to kick it off in style as he looks to take down Alex de Minaur ro book his spot in the last 16 here at the 2022 Paris Masters.
Alex de Minaur took down Sebastian Korda in a very tight match, winning 6-4 4-6 6-4. It’s an excellent win for the Aussie, but as he comes up against Daniil Medvedev, he’ll know his chances are very slim. In order to take this one, his only hope lies in the level of Medvedev dropping, which doesn’t look all too likely at all, not to mention the favorable conditions here in Bercy as the World No. 3 looks to capitalize on his form and move through to the next round at the 2022 Paris Masters.
Daniil Medvedev and Alex de Minaur have met 4 times before, with Daniil Medvedev leading the head to head 4-0. No matter the quality of de Minaur, this is a nightmare matchup for him, he’s essentially playing a much better version of himself, and past results have indicated as much. I expect this match to be an excellent tune-up for Medvedev as he adjusts to the conditions and looks to make his mark as he aims to make a title run once more here at the 2022 Paris Masters.
