I warned him Daniil Medvedev: “When I lost in Indian Wells (he fell in the third round) without playing well, I went back to the practice court with the goal of reaching the semi-finals here and getting the number one back. And I’m going to try.” The Russian, who saw how in California the tennis scepter returned to the hands of Novak Djokovic, he imposed his hierarchy at the Miami Masters 1,000 to defeat Pedro Martínez 6-3 and 6-4 in 1:24.
The Russian dominated the first moto with only seven unforced errors and impeccable in service. But Martínez (24 years old and 47th in the world) did not collapse. After suffering a break (2-1), he equalized taking advantage of a couple of errors by Medvedev. Then, the Muscovite turned around, achieved the break (4-3) and was ready to serve and win. He did not forgive, but the Valencian left signs that he is willing to continue growing.
Medvedev will play in the round of 16 against Jenson Brooksby, who left out Roberto Bautista by 6-3, 5-7 and 6-4. The match had a strange outcome. The Spaniard, who made the semifinals in Miami in 2021, He dominated the third set 4-0 and the American (21 years old and 39th in the world) endorsed him six games in a row. A tremendous ‘bird’ under the Florida sun.
