Daniil Medvedev vs. Hubert Hurkacz Pick – ATP Halle Open June 19, 2022

Two players are left in Halle, as the final round of the Halle Open is scheduled for Sunday afternoon. Daniil Medvedev and Hubert Hurkacz reached the Halle Open final match in Germany.

Medvedev has not been at his best this season, but he’s back to a tournament final for the second time in two weekends. Last weekend didn’t have a happy ending for Medvedev. He was upset in a shocker versus Tim van Rijthoven.

Medvedev was playing fine tennis without losing a set before getting tripped up in the final match in the Netherlands. Van Rijthoven blanked Medvedev for a 6-4, 6-1 win in the biggest win of his career.

He had just got done upsetting Felix Auger-Aliassime and did it again, this time against one of the top-rated players in the world. Going into the Halle Open, Medvedev was the No. 1 ranked player in the ATP rankings because of the new points structure.

Points earned during the French Open last year were removed from the rankings, allowing Medvedev to move up and Djokovic drop.

He will not be able to earn any points during Wimbledon, but is playing exceptionally well on the grass right now. Medvedev will have an opportunity to defend his US Open title.

In his best tournament over the last year, Medvedev won the 2021 US Open over Djokovic in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.

Hurkacz is coming off a tight win over Nick Kyrgios. Tough loss for Kyrgios, who appeared focused and locked in for once this tournament.

There were no typical Kyrgios antics, but he still dropped a 4-6, 7-6, 7-6 match after winning the first set. The Pole will need to dig deep and find it in him to outlast Medvedev.

Daniil Medvedev vs. Hubert Hurkacz Prediction:

Nick Kyrgios had played solid tennis up to his meeting with Hubert Hurkacz. That was a gutsy win from Hurkacz against a Kyrgios that looked motivated in a rare display in Germany. In any case, Medvedev will be a tougher foe on Sunday.

Hurkacz has gotten into some tight games at the Halle Open. In his first match, he needed three sets to edge out Maxime Cressy, 6-4, 4-6, 6-4. Three of his next four games went to a tiebreaker against Humbert and Auger-Aliassime.

In his semifinal match against Kyrgios, he needed three sets and two tiebreakers to beat the Aussie. They aced back and forth, with Hurkacz notching 27 aces to a whopping 30 aces for Kyrgios.

The difference in the match ended up being Kyrgios’ mental mistakes. The match would have worked out differently if Kyrgios hadn’t committed seven double faults. Hurkacz had just one double fault, so there’s why he won.

If Kyrgios does not give himself self-inflicted wounds, Hurkacz probably isn’t winning that match.

Hurkacz was 5-3 in eight matches last year on the grass. He’s up to 4-1, but takes on a Medvedev who has never felt better on the grass at the moment.

Medvedev is up to 7-1 on the grass, with 14 sets won in 16 attempts in 2022. He went 7-2 and 19-9 in sets last year.

Hurkacz must realize that he can’t depend on Medvedev making mistakes in the final at Halle. That’s how he beat Kyrgios, but Medvedev is likely locked in after he was upset just last week in a final.

I bet Medvedev +300 pre-tournament, so I’m feeling good right now. Matteo Berrettini at +400 to win the Queen’s Club Championship is also in my account. Both players winning and Medvedev by more than two games would make this a fine day in Halle.
