Danny Medvedev lost his leading position in the ATP rankings to non-US players due to the lack of a Covid-19 vaccine, Novak Djokovic, on Monday, but he may quickly regain his throne. In order to do that, he has to reach the semi-finals in Miami. On Saturday, the Russians took the first step towards it. After a 200 duel, he defeated Briton Andy Murray 6:4, 6:2.

– I think it was a great match. It’s never easy in your first game, even if you’ve been training on the same court for a month or two. I’m glad I didn’t have to defend any stopping points. I can still improve, but I played really well against a great player – said Medvedev during an interview in court, who will meet Pedro Martinez on Monday. The Spaniard won on Saturday with Chilean Christian Garin 7:6 (2), 6:2.

Felix Auger-Aliassime quickly said goodbye to the party in Miami. Ranked at the “Seven”, the Canadian played a weaker match with Miomir Kekmanovic. He finished 16 balls and had 29 unforced errors. The Serbian, who has been in good shape recently, scored his opponent from the top ten and won 6:4, 6:2. In the third round, his opponent will be American Sebastian Korda or Spain’s Albert Ramos.
