Paris Masters 2021: Daniil Medvedev vs Alexander Zverev – World No 2 Daniil Medvedev demolished Alexander Zverev 6-2, 6-2 in the Paris Masters semifinal on Saturday, setting up a rematch of the US Open final against Novak Djokovic. Follow live updates of Paris Masters 2021 on InsideSport. 

The Russian fired off six aces and won nearly 80% of his first-serve points to keep alive his chances of winning back-to-back titles in the Paris capital. Zverev produced four double faults and lost his cool in the second set, smashing his racquet with the Russian up a break.

Medvedev was near flawless throughout the contest, saving all three break point opportunities. He will face Djokovic for the 10th time after the world number one beat Polish seventh seed Hubert Hurkacz 3-6 6-0 7-6(5) in the other semi-final.

The Russian ended Djokovic’s hopes of completing a sweep of all four Grand Slam titles in 2021 when he defeated the Serb in the U.S. Open final in September to pick up his maiden major.

Medvedev saved all three break points he faced and soaked up the German’s powerful hitting, committing just eight unforced errors to level their ATP Head2Head series at 5-5. With his victory, the Russian has now won his past four meetings against Zverev, including last year’s championship match in Paris.

“We had a tough match. Sometimes the score doesn’t show exactly what happened on the court. I am happy to have this score, but he had 2-1, 15/40 in the first set on my serve. I think this first break of serve when you play Sascha is really important because he gains confidence. I am really happy I managed to raise my level throughout the match and I didn’t make too many unforced errors,” Medvedev said after the match.
