Daniil Medvedev Destroys Dominic Thiem to Reach Semifinals of Montreal Open 2019

Daniil Medvedev Destroys Dominic Thiem to Reach Semifinals of Montreal Open 2019”

Dominic Thiem registered a big win over former US Open champion Marin Cilic, winning 7-6 6-4 to storm into the quarter-finals of the ATP Canadian Open.

But the defending champion from the 2018 Rogers Cup in Toronto found his rhythm in the second, breaking Fognini, the seventh seed, in the second game when the world's 11th-ranked player double faulted to go down 2-0.

Khachanov and Medvedev are 1-1 in their rivalry, having played each other in Moscow last season and in 2017 at the NextGen final in Milan. The match will be hard. "It should be a great match".

Thiem, who before this week had never won a match in five attempts in Canada, had his hands full against 14th-seeded Cilic but did well to save all nine breakpoints he faced while relying on a steady stream of groundstroke winners.

The French-speaking Medvedev was cheered on by a partisan crowd and finished off a tired-looking Thiem 6-3 6-1 to end the Austrian's six-match winning streak in under an hour.

"I lost (the first set) 6-2 with the feeling I was not playing bad, no negative feelings on the ball, just things (were) going too fast", Nadal said, quoted by the ATP Tour website.

This promises to be one of the more closely fought quarter-finals in the current lineup. I was not able to go the long rallies with him. "But what I can say is that the food was wonderful there, and it's really fun, and it's for a good cause". "It's just a logical score and result after what happened today".

Thiem will rest before next week's Cincinnati Masters, the last major tune-up before the U.S. Open starts on Aug 26. The Austrian hit only four winners against thirteen unforced errors.

I mean, I made the best American swing I could have made previous year, and it was only going up, and she does a lot for me in order for me to play better tennis.

Thiem beat the Russian in April to win the Barcelona title. I heard a lot about it that there were good food and stuff but never saw it.

"I've really had a great transition from good confidence in the European summer".

Thiem stressed that he has no injury problems, but simply need to regain strength for a few days.

"I was expecting a tougher match", he said. "It's just logical that I was very, very exhausted". This is just not enough in a quarterfinals of a Masters 1000, especially against a guy like Daniil, who is in great shape, who is playing incredible tennis. "I didn't have any chance like that".
