Nick Krygios batte il primo classificato Daniil Medvedev in tre set al National Bank Open

Krygios, l'australiano si è classificato 37 °, ha vinto la scorsa settimana a Washington per il suo settimo titolo ATP Tour. Medvedev ha vinto la scorsa settimana a Los Cabos, Messico.

“Oggi avevo un obiettivo molto chiaro su come avrei giocato, a lot of serve-and-volley, a lot of aggressive play from the back,” Kyrgios said. “I executed better than he did, that’s all it comes down to. He won the first set and I feel like I had opportunities there as well, so hopefully I can just keep this rolling.

Kyrgios is 3-1 against Medvedev and has won 14 di 15 partite, with the loss coming to Novak Djokovic in the Finale di wimbledon.

He played very well,” Medvedev said. “The only thing that was a shame for me is that I played him so early because he is fit. He’s among the superiore 10 o 15 Giocatori, so he will soon be a seeded player. It’s a shame to have such a player as an opponent in the first (incontro).”
