Classy win for a top player on a somewhat off day. Not returning too well but the usual big serve + baseline consistency did the job. Just one break all match, quite a contrast to the norm. I really like Medvedev's self-believing mentality, coming from 1-5 down in the first set tiebreak was no mean feat and Rublev wasn't even too bad besides the DF, but Med hit all first serves from then on and finished the set in style, with an awesome backhand from outside the court to bring up SP, quickly converted with an ace. His physical woes have me worried though. Struggled again in the third set and took an MTO, but was able to successfully move on from camping at the baseline to calculated aggression and squeezed through.
