Defeating Tsitsipas, Medvedev clashed with Zverev in the Shanghai Masters 2019 final

Daniil Medvedev took a lot of effort to overcome Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-finals of Shanghai Masters 2019 with the score 7-6 (5) 7-5. Meanwhile, Alexander Zverev defeated Matteo Berrettini in the other semi-final with 6-3 6-4.

The quarter-finals of Shanghai Masters 2019 witnessed a big shock when Novak Djokovic let Stefanos Tsitsipas juniors defeat after 3 sets of drama.

In the semifinals, Tsitsipas continued to face a big challenge called Daniil Medvedev (No. 3 seed of the tournament).

Before this match, the two had met 4 times. In it, Tsitsipas has not once tasted victory over Medvedev.

Entering the match, both Tsitsipas and Medvedev showed incredible stability, with the foundation of extremely good serve.

However, Medvedev is better at the ability to control the ball on two corners of the pitch as well as the ability to finish dangerous. Meanwhile, the strong point of Tsitsipas is its stubbornness, great resilience to the pressures Medvedev creates.

Struggling in 12 major competitive games but still inconclusive, forcing them to pull each other into the tie-break series.

Here, Medvedev played better and won the choking 7-5.

Winning set 1, Medvedev has a psychological advantage in the second set. And in the 3rd game of set 2, Medvedev broke the opponent's game.

However, Tsitsipas is also not a "moderate hand" of Greek players' efforts to be rewarded with a break in the 10th game.

Unfortunately, shortly afterward, Tsitsipas made a very bad mistake to let the opponent break the game a second time. And that was more than enough for Medvedev to win with a score of 7-5.

In the end, Daniil Medvedev defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-finals of Shanghai Masters 2019 with a score of 7-6 (5) 7-5, after 99 minutes of drama.

Medvedev's opponent in the final was Alexander Zverev, the German tennis player who defeated the legendary Rogers Federer in the quarter-finals before defeating Matteo Berrettini in the semi-finals after only two sets of matches.

Entering the match, Zverev completely took the upper hand with aggressive attacks. Meanwhile, Berrettini is no longer as sharp as the previous matches. 11 ace and 1 serve serve rate up to 89% helped No. 5 seed win 6-3 6-4 quickly.

It is expected that the 2019 Shanghai Masters final between Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev will take place at 16:30 (GMT+8) this afternoon (October 13th).
