THE LOWDOWN

HEAD-TO-HEAD
Last meeting:
N/A

DANIIL MEDVEDEV

  • Daniil Medvedev responded perfectly to his thrilling US Open defeat to Rafael Nadal by winning his next tournament, beating Borna Coric in St. Petersburg in his native Russia.
  • World number four Medvedev successfully qualified for the ATP Finals in November with his third title of the year, and has established himself as the ‘best of the rest’ in that fourth world spot.
  • The 21-year-old will enter this tournament as one of the favourites, with Rafael Nadal out of proceedings, and he has received a bye this year to reach the furthest he has ever placed in Shanghai without yet taking to court.

CAMERON NORRIE

  • Cameron Norrie came through the likes of giant-killer Thomas Fabbiano in the Shanghai Masters qualifiers and then beat Gilles Simon in straight sets in the first round.
  • The British number three played out an exciting match with Andy Murray at the China Open last week and will face another big challenge here in playing Daniil Medvedev for the first time.
  • This is Norrie’s first time in the main draw at Shanghai and he has not won successive games at a tournament since late July in Atlanta, a run of six tournaments.

THE PREDICTION

There really is only one outcome in this first meeting between Daniil Medvedev and Cameron Norrie, despite the latter’s occasional outburst of excellence. Medvedev has well and truly established himself as a contender for any tournament he enters right now, especially on his favoured hard surface, and can come through this in his customary straight sets.
