The Line: -- Over/Under:
Russian tennis player, Daniil Medvedev is set to play Milos Raonic from Canada in the quarterfinals of the 2018 ATP Brisbane International in Australia.
Milos Raonic enters this match having won his previous match in straight sets. It was a very strong performance by the Canadian which showcased his exceptional serve. Raonic won over 80% of the points played during his service which included an impressive 21 aces. Such statistics ensured that Milos Raonic won all of his service games. The returning could have been improved by Milos Raonic as he only won 1 return game but considering how well he served, the result was never in doubt.
On the other side of the coin, Daniil Medvedev had a big win as he beat Andy Murray in his previous match. It was a good performance by the Russian as he broke Murray’s serve on 4 occasions while only losing 1 service game in the entire match. While a win over Andy Murray is always a big accomplished, it is important to note that Murray didn’t look 100%. That being said, I am expecting Daniil Medvedev to be high on confidence as he heads into this match against Milos Raonic.
Daniil Medvedev and Milos Raonic have played once in the past. On that occasion, Daniil Medvedev won.
This should be a very interesting game as Daniil Medvedev will be high on confidence as he takes a very impressive Milos Raonic. While injuries have impacted Raonic greatly, the Canadian looked close to his best in his last match. Predicting a result is not an easy task but I am going to pick Milos Raonic to win this match. Milos Raonic is looking far too strong and his serving is looking too good for most players around the world. I see Milos Raonic making it into the semi-finals of the tournament.
