Medvedev, coming off his high-octane win over home favourite Nick Kyrgios two days ago, could face either another Australian Chris O’Connell or American Maxime Cressy in the fourth round
Russian title favourite Daniil Medvedev cruised into the fourth round at the Australian Open with an unruffled straight-sets victory over Dutchman Botic van de Zandschulp on Saturday. In sweltering conditions, the World No.2 won 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 in 1hr 55min to reach the Last-16 for the fourth straight year in Melbourne.
Medvedev, coming off his high-octane win over home favourite Nick Kyrgios two days ago, could face either another Australian Chris O’Connell or American Maxime Cressy in the fourth round. “I was hoping you were going to be a little bit easier on me you guys,” Medvedev joked to the crowd, after he was booed by sections of the pro-Kyrgios crowd on Thursday.
“I’ll put it this way, it’s easier to play a guy from the Netherlands than a guy from Australia in Australia in Melbourne. Every good relationship must have its ups and downs so I think it’s good, it’s entertaining and it’s real.”
