Casper Ruud vs Daniil Medvedev: Prediction and Betting Tips
Casper Ruud booming with confidence
After losing his opening match to world number one Novak Djokovic, Casper Ruud showed great persistence in his next two matches. Firstly, the Norwegian played Cameron Norrie who replaced Berrettini and had to fight back after losing the first set. Notably, it was a difficult start for Ruud as he lost the first set 6-1. However, the world number eight won the next two sets after a big improvement in his first serve during the match.
Secondly, Ruud faced the same scenario in his third match against Rublev who won the first set. Yet again, the 22-year-old Norwegian showed great fighting spirit and refused to lose winning the second and third set. With these wins, Ruud will be high in confidence. But needs to be at his best against Medvedev to whom he lost in their past two meetings.

Daniil Medvedev to reach his second final in a row
Defending champion Daniil Medvedev reached the semi-final of the ATP Tour Finals after beating Zverev and Hurkacz. Moreover, the Russian continued his winning run by beating Jannik Sinner in the third round of the group stage in a Biizzare match. After winning the first set 6-0, Medvedev lost his focus and gave away the second set.
By this time, the Italian grew in momentum, and backed by the crowd he fought his way back after going a break down. At this point, Medvedev looked to be annoyed by the crowd and started serving second serves faster than his first!! However, the Russian prevailed in the end and won the third in a tie break. Surely, the world number two will be more composed and focused in his semi-final match.
STILL undefeated in Turin ?

Casper Ruud vs Daniil Medvedev Prediction
This match will be decided by Medvedev’s form. If the Russian is up for it, Ruud cannot beat him. Notably, Medvedev lost a set in every match he played and looked vulnerable at times. Moreover, he uncharacteristically lost his temper against Sinner.
Ruud on the other hand had a tough second half of the season, but in the last two matches, the Norwegian was a warrior. In effect, if he shows that same hunger to win against Medvedev, we can be in for another three-setter.
In any case, the Bookmakers are favoring a clear win for Medvedev paying just 1.26 for the Russian’s triumph. However, with very limited markets we will back over 2.5 sets as was the case in Medvedev’s three matches and Ruud’s two.
