Medvedev, intractable: 19 of 19 games won on service

Daniil Medvedev beat Aljaz Bedene (double 6-3) without giving up a single break point and will face Bautista in the quarterfinals. Goffin, deleted.

Reigning Cincinnati Masters 1,000 champion Daniil Medvedev has taken his title defense seriously and is intractable so far this tournament. The Russian has won the 19 games he has played with his service and this Tuesday against Aljaz Bedene (double 6-3) he did not concede a single break point (against Giron in the second round he saved the three he had against) .

Thus, the world number 5 is already in the quarterfinals, where he will meet this Wednesday with the Spanish Roberto Bautista, who beat his compatriot Karen Khachanov. "I know both of them very well, I'm going to enjoy their game," commented Daniil.

Little history had the party for the precision of Medvedev, a rock (only 9 unforced errors by 28 of Bedene). In the first set, the Muscovite, who lives and trains in Monte Carlo, soon broke the Slovenian's serve and retained his lead. And in the second heat it took him a little longer to take advantage, but when he did he kept it again without problems. He looks good, although his state of form will have to be better calibrated against rivals of greater weight. "I played much better than yesterday from the baseline. I work to improve every day and reach my potential, it is my career goal," said Medvedev.

Struff eliminates Goffin (10th)

Jan-Lennard Struff is the surprise, for now, of the Western & Southern Open. In New York, De Miñaur, Shapovalov and, this Tuesday, David Goffin, seventh seed and number 10 in the world, have already been charged. The 30-year-old 34th-ranked German continues his late-age progression and will be in the quarter-finals of the tournament for the first time in his career. He had beaten the Belgian in his last duel, last year on the land of Barcelona, and did it again on the hard court, in three sets (6-4, 3-6 and 6-4). It will now be measured against Djokovic or Sandgren.

Results of the day.
