In the opening two sets Medvedev  didn’t need to push himself to work hard, he just implemented his “plan A” and it was enough to break Tsitsipas  a few times, holding comfortably. In the 3rd set the crowd was involved and helped the Greek to go from *1:3 (30/40) to 4:3* (40/30) – Medvedev delivered very good serve then as well as at *4:5 (0/30). He broke in the 11th game with a stunning backhand pass on the run and closed out the match in the following game without any troubles. He now leads 6:1 in H2H vs Tsitsipas. “[When I was scared], I just tried to hit aces and winners or put the ball in the court,” said Medvedev. “That is the only way to do it… I am happy I managed to keep my nerves because I didn’t make so many bad choices, except for the game where I got broken… I am happy that I managed to keep my calm.”
