- The coefficients and forecast
Rafael Nadal directly in Montreal last took the title back 2013. While at the Rogers Cup last year in Toronto it Rafa was the winner. Without Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer this year, initially the Spanish tennis player was seen as the main contender for the title. And a big surprise at his appearance in the final of Montreal is.
In the tournament in Montreal this year Nadal played just three matches. Definitely call it outstanding performances can’t. Clearly needed time to adapt in the opening game against Daniel Evans (7-6, 6-4). In the quarterfinals, managed to cope with the traditionally inconvenient Fabio Fognini (2-6, 6-1, 6-2). The semi-final against Gael Monfis did not play Rafa because of the removal of the opponent’s match.
Two sets of playing against Fognini it was noticeable that he was able already during the match to add in movement and aggression on the court Nadal. Of course, Medvedev’s style of play is different from Fabio. However, in General there is a feeling that the real Nadal yet we have not seen in Montreal.
Excellent physical shape at the moment allows for Daniil Medvedev at the same level to play the second week in a row after reaching the final of Washington. For the current season in a similar situation, had a Russian tennis player, when on the ground after the semi-finals of the Monte Carlo came next week to the finals of Barcelona.
Succeeded in Montreal Medvedev without protracted matches to reach the final. All the victories of the Russian tennis player won in two sets. There were expectations that in the semi-final of the Russian Derby with Karen by Hazanovym will of Daniel. However, as the game progresses you have viewed a significant advantage over all components, exactly Daniel.
An important factor in the upcoming match will be psychology. Daniel is not the not too self-confident guy we often seen before. Before the game about Rafa player clearly determined to win and to fight:
“I showed very high quality tennis this week. I think if you ask my opponents, they’ll say I was playing crazy tennis. I hope I can bring the same game and show what I’m capable of. Of course, I will go out on the court to win.”
