Medvedev and Sinner win on Wednesday move to Erste Bank Open round 2

Daniil Medvedev returned to winning ways advancing to the 2nd round of Erste Bank Open in Vienna where he will be joined by Jannik Sinner.

Daniil Medvedev hasn't had the best of times since the restart as he had to endure several disappointing results. He hoped this event might change that and today was a good start against Jung whom he beat 6-3 6-1 in 66 minutes of play. It was a solid showing from the Russian who came out focused and quickly started playing his game. He broke Jung in the first game and from there it was an easy cruise towards the victory. The Russian served very well throughout the match having excellent percentages on both his serves. He was also focused on pressure moments saving all five break points Jung had.

Joining him in the 2nd round will be Jannik Sinner who faced stiffer competition from Casper Ruud but the Italian proved better. The first set was a very close affair with both players serving and playing well. Sinner had three break points in one game but failed to use either. Ruud had a break point late in the set which would have won him the set but he too failed to use it. We ended up in a tiebreak where Sinner proved more focused winning it convincingly 7-2. The 2nd set started well for Sinner who broke Sinner early to take a 3-0 lead.

The Norwegian fought back to make it 3-3 but Sinner raised his level at the perfect time and won the next two games to make it 5-3. He would go on to finish the match with a 6-3 victory. It was a great start for Sinner who is looking to end the year on a high note.
