French Open: Medvedev thumps Kecmanovic, storms into the fourth round

PARIS: The second-ranked tennis player Daniil Medvedev secured a resounding 6-2, 6-4, 6-2 over the Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic to book his spot in the fourth round of the ongoing French Open.

Medvedev, who seemed to be struggling with his strikes and was not at his sparkling best, eased past the Serb with a straight-sets victory to make his way into the next round.

The Russian blunted the in-form Kecmanovic with a straight-forward victory as he dropped only eight games in total in the progress.

The second seed kept the youngster on the back foot as he dominated the majority of the match with his accurate drop shots and strong net coverage.

After failing in the first four main draw matches in the French Open between 2017 and 2020. The Russian has found his luck this time around as he is just a victory away from reaching a second consecutive quarter-final.

He will lock horns with the winner of the third-round match between Croatia’s Marin Cilic or Frances Gilles Simon, in an attempt to make it to the final eight of the tournament.
