Game info Daniil Medvedev x Alex De Minaur


The confrontation between Daniil Medvedev and Alex De Minaur takes place this Wednesday, November 2, in a match valid for the second round of the ATP Masters 1000 Paris in its 2022 version. After winning the ATP 500 title in Vienna last week, the Russian Daniil Medvedev once again occupies the number three position in the world ranking of athletes. Now, he is considered one of the favorites for the title in Paris, where he will try to win the championship twice. As his first obstacle, he will face the Australian Alex De Minaur. The estimated start of the match is at 12:00 UTC.


How the ATP Masters 1000 Paris works


The ATP Masters 1000 Paris is a traditional tennis competition that currently distributes 1000 ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals), ranking points to the winner. The tournament's first edition was held in 1972, reaching its 48th edition this year. We will have all the best players in the world in contention for the cup in the 2022 edition, except for Alexander Zverev, who will not attend due to injury. Emphasizing the main competitors, we will have the big favorite for the title, Novak Djokovic; the current number 1 in the world, Carlos Alcaraz; and the current number 2 in the world, Rafael Nadal, who will attempt an unprecedented title in his career. The ATP Masters 1000 Paris prize pool is €3.084.450, and the tournament in 2022 will run from October 29 to November 6.


Daniel Medvedev

At first, Daniil Medvedev currently occupies number 3 in the ATP ranking, reaching the best position of his career in February this year, when he was number 1 in the world. Even though he has only won his second title this season, it is a fact that the Russian has shown significant improvement in his level of play in his last appearances. After reaching the semifinals of the ATP 500 in Astana, where Novak Djokovic defeated him, he managed to confirm his favoritism and win the ATP 500 in Vienna for the first time, after an almost perfect campaign where he lost only one set in all the games, beating Canadian Denis Shapovalov in the grand final by 2 sets to 1. As the third top seed in the table, Daniil Medvedev did not have to play in the first round of the ATP Masters 1000 in Paris.


Alex De Minaur

On the other hand, Alex De Minaur currently occupies number 25 in the ATP rankings, reaching the best position of his career in June 2021, when he was number 15 in the world. Despite being far from experiencing the best moment of his journey on the ATP World Tour courts, the Australian's season is not considered an excellent disaster for his title won at the ATP 250 in Atlanta, United States. Since then, when he won the cup in July this year, he had just one more good performance, where he reached the semifinals of the ATP 250 Stockholm, being eliminated in the first rounds in the other disputes. Because he is still relatively well-ranked on the world circuit of athletes, he managed to enter the main table of the ATP Masters 1000 in Paris without having to go through the qualifiers. He beat the excellent American opponent Sebastian Korda in the first round by 2 sets to 1.
