The US Open tournament takes place in New York, and in this analysis I will detail the semifinal match between Daniil Medvedev and Dominic Thiem, and I will conclude with the related bet.
New York is a town of 8.1 million inhabitants, with over 60 million tourists annually.
This tournament is big, grand slam, with a prize pool of $ 21,656,000.
The host is the Flushing Meadows complex, which has land covered with a fast, outdoor hard drive.
In this phase we have Zverev, Busta, Thiem and Medvedev.
Daniil Medvedev: Team form, news and statistics
Daniil Medvedev is a 24-year-old Russian, ranked 5th in the ATP.
And Medvedev is a very solid player, a tennis player who will probably stay in the top 10 ATP for a long time if there are no injuries or extra-sports problems. But Daniil has all the chances to become a great champion, having a mentality suitable for performance, being in control of himself although he is very young and being smart, which obviously helps him even on the field.
And Medvedev already has a grand slam final, last year right here at the US Open tormenting Nadal a lot and losing after 5 long sets.
Now he wants to go one step further, the final being in fact this semifinal, the last act being easier for anyone who wins here.
In 2019 he has the final in Brisbane, the title in Sofia, the semifinals in Rotterdam, the semifinals in Monte Carlo, the final in Barcelona, the semifinals in Queen’s, the final in Washington, the final in Montreal, the title in Cincinnati, the final at the US Open, the title in St. Petersburg and title in Shanghai,
And in 2020 he has the quarterfinals in Marseille and the quarterfinals in Cincinnati, two weeks ago.
There he played quite well but lost to Agut, after a rather chaotic match.
Dominic Thiem: Team form, news and statistics
Dominic Thiem is a 27-year-old Austrian, ranked 3rd in the ATP.
And Thiem is one of the best players in the world and an athlete who is very close to his first grand slam tournament.
He already has 3 finals, all lost, but he was getting closer to the trophy, in January at the Australia Open taking Djokovic in 5 sets. In addition, Dominic is now in sports maturity, he plays the best tennis of his life, so I consider him the main favorite for the title.
In 2019 he has semifinals in Buenos Aires, title in Indian Wells, title in Barcelona, semifinals in Madrid, final in Roland Garros, quarterfinals in Hamburg, title in Kitzbuhel, quarterfinals in Montreal, title in Beijing, quarterfinals in Shanghai, title in Vienna and final at ATP Finals.
And in 2020 he has a final at the Australian Open and a quarter-final in Rio de Janeiro.
Thiem also played for ATP Cincinnati, where he clearly lost to Krajinovic.
🎾Statistics of direct matches Daniil Medvedev vs Dominic Thiem

Tennis Prediction of the Day Daniil Medvedev vs Dominic Thiem
Dominic Thiem has gradually raised his form here, and in the last two games, those with Aliassime and De Minaur has been incredible. This shows his sporting maturity, Dominic already knowing how to manage a grand slam tournament very well and reach the maximum form in the final stages.
In addition, Thiem can be seen that he worked physically, being very fast and active on the field, good at work but also on return and on defense. And the slower center field helps him. Daniil Medvedev is statistically the best player here. He did not lose a set, he gave up his service only 3 times the whole tournament and with Rublev he did not even offer a break ball.
But the Russian has not met players like Thiem so far, having an easy run until the quarterfinals, and with Rublev having two problems with big problems, winning them at the limit in the tie-break.
I thus consider that Thiem is the favorite, my prediction going on his victory at a odds offered by Betano.
