Carreno Busta vs Medvedev: who will get to the semifinal?
On July 29, Pablo Carreno Busta takes on Daniil Medvedev in the quarterfinals of the Tokyo Olympics. Which tennis player will qualify for the semifinals? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Pablo Carreno Busta
Carreno Busta got an exciting path to the quarterfinals: all three of his previous matches turned out to be quite difficult for the Spanish tennis player. In the first round, Pablo played against Tennys Sandgren and beat him in two sets (7-5, 6-2). Then there was a very close match with Marin Cilic (5-7, 6-4, 6-4). In the Round of 16, Carreno Busta outplayed the German Dominik Koepfer in two sets (7-6, 6-3).
Medvedev, on the contrary, didn't get very tough opponents in the first rounds of the Olympic tournament. The Russian closed both Alexander Bublik and Sumit Nagal in two sets - he defeated the first opponent with a score of 6-4, 7-6, and the second with a score of 6-2, 6-1. But the previous match in the Round of 16 was quite a challenge: Medvedev needed three sets to defeat Fabio Fognini (6-2, 3-6, 6-2).
Medvedev has played 3 tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
More than 9.5 games were played in the first set in 4 of Carreno Busta's last 5 matches.
Carreno Busta is a convenient opponent for Medvedev. Daniel has outplayed the Spanish tennis player three times in his career. We expect the victory of the Russian in the upcoming match: Medvedev is in excellent shape.
Our prediction - Medvedev to win with a handicap of (-4) games.
