In fact, this match was like a master class. The game showed that the opponents are on a completely different levelMedvedev, apparently, smartly prepared for the tournament and will again fight for the title.
In the final last season, the tennis player from Russia lost to Rafael Nadal. On the eve of the current draw of the tournament, Medvedev reached the semi-finals at the competition in Adelaide, in which he defeated Lorenzo Sonego, Miomir Kechmanovich and Karen Khachanov.
John Millman had a tough first round matchup against Marc-Andrea Huesler in which the Tennessees were 2-2 down in sets. But the Australian played brilliantly in the final games, giving the opponent a total of only five games.
Millman made it through the opening round at a home major for the second year in a row. Last season, the tennis player started with a victory over Feliciano Lopez, after which he lost to Alexander Zverev.
Millman’s best result so far remains reaching the third round in the 2016 and 2020 seasons. Millman is now 33 years old and is outside the top 100 in the world rankings.
