Due to start at 4:30 pm
Thiem 1.60, Medvedev 2.64
This will be the first time they have played.
Slightly better 2018 results for Thiem. He has won 72% of his matches this season compared to 66% for Medvedev. He didn’t create many chances against Struff in the last round and I rate Medvedev better on serve than Struff. Thiem scraped through that match 7-6, 6-4.
Medvedev has won 8 of 11 indoor matches in 2018. He had two potentially tricky opponents this week in Sousa and Kukushkin but both were beaten in straight sets.
Some value on Medvedev and I expect him to be competitive. Medvedev has only been broken once in each match.
Lay Thiem around 1.40 and remove liability at 1.80. Good chance of 3 sets.
