Nadal crushes Medvedev to retain Montreal title

Nadal crushes Medvedev to retain Montreal title

"It should be a great match".

This is evidenced by some stunning 2019 hard court numbers.

In total, world number nine Medvedev committed 22 unforced errors throughout the match.

12 month data isn't quite as impressive though, and would make his [1.52] market price a little short, and as I've said before, Khachanov's solid but unspectacular win percentage this year has been affected by losing an absurd amount of tiebreaks (he's won around a third of tiebreaks in the last 12 months and a similar percentage this season).

The Russian had not dropped a set in the tournament but was no match for Nadal, who saved a break point in his first game and confidently put away Medvedev who is 10 years his junior. He cruised by Christian Garin 6-3, 6-3 in the round of 16, it took him less than an hour to dispose of Thiem by a score of 6-3, 6-1 in the quarterfinals, and he mostly dominated Khachanov in the 6-1, 7-6 (6) semifinals. I always felt when I have been playing here, have been always an unbelievable atmosphere out here, full crowd. "For me, personally, it was important to start the match in good shape", Nadal said. "When he's playing well, these kind of players that can produce wonderful shots". It was kind of working in the beginning of the match, but then I completely lost the momentum. I think that might have attributed to the success of guys like Vasek, Milos, now guys like Felix and Denis. "I was happy that I was able to play so well, to beat him so easily".

Nadal advanced to the showpiece contest on a walkover when his semi-final opponent, Frenchman Gael Monfils, withdrew with an ankle injury before their meeting.

Spain's Marcel Granollers and Argentina's Horacio Zeballos, playing together for the first time, defeated Robin Haase and Wesley Koolhof of the Netherlands 7-5, 7-5 to win the men's doubles final at the Rogers Cup.

Despite the defeat, Osaka is assured of a return to world No.1 on Monday after the second-round exit of top-ranked Australian Ashleigh Barty and a quarter-final defeat for third-ranked Czech Karolina Pliskova.

Despite seeing the game out for a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 victory in the Association of Tennis Professionals World Tour Masters 1000 event, Monfils later pulled out of his last four clash with Nadal.
