14.10.2020, 21:05 #News #Best

The top seed Daniil Medvedev from Russia began his title defence at St. Petersburg Open 2020. In the opening match  he defeated the seasoned player Richard Gasquet from France 3/6, 6/3, 6/0 in 1 h 37 mins. The Russian fired 23 aces while his opponent had  none and Daniil also had an advantage in points won on his return (37-16).

“I felt I led the game but there were a couple of close outs and a bad game on my serve in the opening set. But after that I found my rhythm and I broke him several times. I am happy I rallied to win and that I was playing consistently in the 2nd and 3rd sets. The crowd support was unbelievably good. It helped me a lot”, – said Medvedev after the match. In the next round he will take on Reilly Opelka from the USA.
