Daniil Medvedev vs. Cameron Norrie

It’s a final that should surprise no one as Daniil Medvedev and Cameron Norrie were rather favored to be here. Medvedev returned to tennis after missing a few weeks and he looked as good as ever as he slowly built up his form over the past two days.

All of his wins were pretty comfortable but his draw was relatively easy so that’s no surprise. It was much trickier for Norrie who faced better players overall but did pretty well in the test. The only complicated match was against Auger-Aliassime but he managed to win that one in straight sets.

All in all, it’s a game that heavily favors Medvedev simply because of the styles of play. Norrie will have a hard time breaking Medvedev’s defense and he’ll have to rely heavily on his serve. It’s worked well for him so far and he’ll need it to keep the points short.

Norrie’s best bet is to catch Medvedev playing too loose, which can happen. He did it against Kecmanovic but pulled himself together in time. If Norrie has that chance, he’ll have to take it. I’m not sure he can do it but Medvedev has lost his last two finals so there you have it. I think Medvedev wins but in three.

Nick Kyrgios vs Mikael Ymer

Nick Kyrgios is in spectacular form and it’s been going on for a few months. You don’t make the Wimbledon final without doing something special and he certainly shows a certain level of maturity and seriousness that his game previously lacked. A chance to make the final of an ATP 500 event should keep Kyrgios keen In this one.

Ymer is enjoying a brilliant out of nowhere as his season has been pretty bad so far. The Swede has become a clay-court specialist, but in recent years his tennis has generally performed quite well on hard courts, with the results confirming this. He can play well under these conditions but consistency is something that rarely shows up in his game.

He did it this week and it’s a rare chance for a final. The Swede will certainly frustrate Kyrgios with his speed and ability to hit accurate shots from both ends of the pitch, but the Aussie saw it last night with Tiafoe. He faced major issues to salvage 5 match points in that one, but in doing so, Kyrgios once again proved he was serious about tennis.

This will definitely favor him in this match as he has more power than Ymer and he will definitely have to use it. Serving is a notorious weakness for the Swede and if Kyrgios can continue to come back well, he should be comfortable.

Daria Kasatkina vs. Paula Badosa

This is a superb match between two players who are playing very strong tennis at the moment. Both had spectacular performances in the previous round with Badosa beating a scorching Gauff and Kasatakina coming back to win against Sabalenka.

There are some important things to remember about this one. Badosa likes to attack with Kasatkina more of a counter puncher. The counter-puncher tends to do very well in these matchups and Kasatkina has easily won in Rome this year. Badosa won easily in Sydney and this is the most relevant game so far.

Badosa does well on fast courts and those courts help him free up his serve when it works. Kasatkina generally struggles to keep up with faster courts versus slower courts. The Russian is capable of winning this game but Badosa will have to miss a lot, like she did in Rome.

The Spaniard looks quite comfortable as she hits way more than she misses and I think that will count. The match is on her racket and although I think we will see three sets, I think she will win. The safest bet is three sets, so that’s what we’ll recommend, but Badosa will decide the winner with their level in this one.
