Daniil Medvedev will meet Miomir Kecmanovic in the Semi-Finals of the Washington Open. The match will be played on Friday August 5th, 2022.

Daniil Medvedev is the top seed here at the Los Cabos Open and is the number one ranked player in the world. The big Russian is hoping to put a disappointing summer behind him, disappointing in the sense that he had to miss the third Grand Slam of the season, Wimbledon. He has burst out of the gates impressively here, defeating Rinky Hijikata and Ricardas Berankis in straight sets. When he is on form, he is near unbeatable on hard courts, and will be eager to get his US Open title defense preparations off to a good start. A title win here will guarantee that he keeps his top ranking so that is additional motivation. He is the big favorite here against Miomir Kecmanovic and it will take a huge effort from the Serbian to cause the upset here.

Miomir Kecmanovic is the fourth seed at the Los Cabos Open and is ranked 38th in the world after a strong season this year. The owner of a 28-15 record on the season thumped Jordan Thompson the round before he did the same to Brandon Nakashima. He has simply been fantastic this entire season and if there is ever a time that he can cause this massive over Daniil Medvedev, this is it. He has the solid all-around game to cause some damage, but it remains to be seen how it will fare against the elite defense of his opponent.

This match is likely going to be tighter than it appears on paper, with Daniil Medvedev and Miomir Kecmanovic set to have a ferocious battle. Kecmanovic has had the best season of his life and is looking great this season, but I don’t think that he will quite have enough to cause the upset. I think it will be close, but in pressure situations, the Russian is one of the best and I expect him to have the edge here, moving on to the Final of the 2022 Los Cabos Open.
