Auger Aliassime vs Medvedev: prediction for the Australian Open match
Felix Auger Aliassime takes on Daniil Medvedev in the quarter-final match of the Australian Open. Who will progress to the next round of the tournament? Our prediction is in the article below.
Felix Auger Aliassime
All of Felix Auger Aliassime's matches at the current tournament were very different. In the first round match, the Canadian had a tough battle against Emil Ruusuvuori (6-4, 0-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4). After that, he played four tie-breaks against Alejandro Davidovich-Fokina before cruising to victory over Daniel Evans (6-4, 6-1, 6-1). In the round of 16, Auger Aliassime defeated Marin Cilic (2-6, 7-6, 6-2, 7-6).
Daniil Medvedev is having a confident Australian Open campaign. He had certain difficulties against the local favourite Nick Kyrgios (7-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2) and big server Maxime Cressy (6-2, 7-6, 6-7, 7-5), but the other two matches very quite easy for the Russian. In the first round of the tournament, he beat Henri Laaksonen in straight sets (6-1, 6-4, 7-6), and in the third match, he closed Botic Van De Zandschulp (6-4, 6-4, 6-2).
Auger Aliassime played 5 tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
Medvedev has played over 9 games in the first set in 3 of his last 5 matches.
Auger Aliassime and Medvedev have met three times before. At the ATP Cup this January, Medvedev defeated the Canadian in straight sets. Moreover, he won one set with a score of 6-0. We are expecting another confident victory of the Russian tennis player.
Our prediction - total under 38 games
Medvedev leads the head-to-head at 3-0. We don't think that much has changed since their last match in early January and will be backing Medvedev in the upcoming fixture.
Second bet - handicap (-6) to Medvedev
