Russia complies with favoritism and will play the Davis Cup final



On the Madrid Arena track, the top five in the world to open the afternoon. A complete match, immaculate even from Andrey Rublev who did not get at any time that disconnection that he has suffered in his meetings throughout the week in the
Davis Cup
. Dominik Koepfer He barely endured a couple of games in the first set (6-4 and 6-0 in 50 minutes). The Russian’s hand, firm as ever in this competition, lashed out from all sides until he riddled the German with a 6-0 score in the second set.

The road to the final was flatter for Russia, and they finished drawing it Daniil Medvedev already in the desktop. The number 2 in the world, who already weighed the days in this competition and the responsibility of having to drag the team, and Jan-Lennard Struff They gave away a game of level, almost table tennis, of how fast the ball passed, brushing the net from side to side.

But a couple of details in the first and second sets, a double fault, an apparently easy right too long, offered the Russian the opportunity to sentence the clash in both sets (6-4 and 6-4 in one hour and 6 minutes ).

And that Medvedev had to deal, in addition to Struff, with nosebleeds throughout the game, on the ground a couple of times to stop the nosebleed and with handkerchiefs all over the bench. But the number 2 in the world has that tennis that, for the moment, and with respect to Novak Djokovic, is superior to the others. With his last serving turns resolved with direct services, up to eight in the game, he stepped onto the Madrid Arena court to confirm that it is he, and his team, who will play the final of the Davis Cup 2021 on Sunday (4:00 p.m.) against Croatia, executioner of Djokovic’s Serbia.
