The duo were pitted against each other early in the ATP Masters 1000 in Miami last year. It was relatively straightforward for Medvedev who won 6-4, 6-2. The previous meeting before that came in 2019 in Brisbane, Australia, and again the Russian won in two sets on hard surface.
How Murray reached the final
It has been some journey for the Scot. His wildcard status meant he had to start in the first round where he overcame Italian Lorenzo Sonego in a thrilling encounter, saving three match points to win a final set tie-break. Another three-setter followed with Alexander Zverev from Germany. Murray won sets one and three, 7-6 and 7-5, to advance to the semi-final. It wasn’t quite as taxing, time wise, against Frenchman Alexandre Müller. Again, Murray had to play three sets but was more comfortable in the sets he did win, 6-1, 6-2. Jiri Lehecka was defeated in the semi-final, 6-0, 3-6, 7-6.
Who is Daniil Medvedev?
The 6ft6in Russian turned pro in 2014 and has so far won 16 career titles, one of which was the US Open in 2021 when he defeated Novak Djokovic in straight sets.
