Daniil Medvedev is set to play at the 2019 ATP Shanghai Masters in China. Medvedev will begin his tournament in the second round where he will play against Cameron Norrie from the United Kingdom.
Cameron Norrie played in the opening round of this tournament where he defeated Gilles Simon from France. It was a very impressive display by Norrie as he won the match in straight sets. During the victory, Cameron Norrie received serve exceptionally strongly as the Brit won close to 50% of his receiving points which allowed him to break Gilles Simon’s serve on 5 occasions. The serving was also solid as Norrie won 80% of his service games. Cameron Norrie has not made it past the second round of a tournament since the Atlanta Open in July and it is going to be tough for the Brit to break that streak in Shanghai. This is expected to be a very tough match for Cameron Norrie as he is playing against the number 3 seed.
On the other side of the court, Daniil Medvedev will begin his tournament in this round having received an opening-round bye due to his high seeding. It has been an immense few months for Daniil Medvedev as he dominated the North American season. Medvedev made the final of the US Open, Rogers Cup and Citi Open while winning the Cincinnati Masters. Furthermore, Daniil Medvedev continued his supreme form into Europe as he won the St Petersburg Open following the conclusion of the US Open. Daniil Medvedev is currently the hottest play on the tour and he will be confident in his ability to win this tournament.
Daniil Medvedev and Cameron Norrie have not played each other in the past.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Daniil Medvedev to win this match. Medvedev has been in supreme form and he has beaten the likes of Djokovic and Zverev over the past few months. I see a big difference in form and skill which leads me to predict that Medvedev will win this match in straight sets.
