THE LOWDOWN

HEAD-TO-HEAD
Last meeting:
Daniil Medvedev beat Jeremy Chardy 7-6, 6-2

DANIIL MEDVEDEV

  • World number four Daniil Medvedev comes into the Paris Masters as many people’s favourite for the title after winning back-to-back tournaments in Shanghai and St. Petersburg.
  • 2019 has been all about Medvedev, who is almost surely the best player in the world right now, and no player has won more matches than the 23-year-old this year. He is tied with Djokovic, Nadal and Federer on four titles each.
  • The only player to have beaten Medvedev since the start of August is Rafael Nadal, at the Rogers Cup and the US Open, and he increasingly looks likely to break into the feted top three.

JEREMY CHARDY

  • Jeremy Chardy pulled off an excellent comeback win over Sam Querrey in the first round of his native Paris Masters in front of a supportive crowd, and he can be a danger to others at this tournament.
  • The French veteran is through to the second round of his 11th Paris Masters campaign but he has never made it past this stage of the tournament, losing to the likes of Federer, Nishikori and Bautista Agut in his last three second-round matches.
  • The world number 65 beat Daniil Medvedev the first time they met at Queen’s last year but more recently lost to the Russian ace, on an indoor hard court this year in Rotterdam.

THE PREDICTION

Poor Jeremy Chardy has the toughest test in tennis right now as he faces Daniil Medvedev on a hard court in the second round, which is no reward for his first-round exploits over Sam Querrey. The Frenchman exhibited great battling qualities to come back from a set down, supported well by the crowd, but quite frankly nothing but a Medvedev injury can see him beat this 23-year-old superstar.
