Sang set 2, Khachanov regained his spirit and played very determinedly. In 12 official competitive games, each side can break 2 break and must determine the winning and losing tie-break series.

Here, Medvedev proved more brave and won the match 8-6.

Eventually, Medvedev defeated Khachanov in the Rogers Cup semi-finals 2019 with 6-1 7-6 (6) after 1 hour and 24 minutes of competition.
