Daniil Medvedev vs Roberto Carballes Baena  Predictions


Medvedev brought a 14-match winning streak into this Australian Open after leading Russia to victory at the ATP Cup. His first-round match against Vasek Pospisil was a one-sided affair.

The Russian has won his last 15 Grand Slam matches played on hard courts against players ranked outside the top 50. He should not have much trouble beating Carballes Baena, the world no. 99 who is more dangerous on clay.

  • Seven of Medvedev’s last 10 hard-court Grand Slam matches vs players ranked outside the top 50 went past 27 games
  • In three of Medvedev’s last 5 hard-court Grand Slam matches vs players ranked outside the top 50, the margin of victory was less than 10.5 games
  • In three of Carballes Baena’s four matches vs top-10 opponents the margin of victory was 6 games or less
  • Carballes Baena won 64% of second serve points in his last match

Daniil Medvedev Form


Medvedev was one of the hot favourites coming into the Australian Open. Runner-up at the 2019 Australian Open, Medvedev finished 2020 in red-hot form as he won the Paris Masters and ATP Finals back-to-back. 

His start to 2021 has been equally impressive as he partnered with Andrey Rublev to lead Russia to victory at the ATP Cup.

Medvedev beat three players ranked inside the top 10 at the ATP Cup. In the first round of the Australian Open, he had little trouble beating Vasek Pospisil 6-2, 6-2, 6-4. Pospisil had been a tricky opponent for Medvedev in the past but had clearly struggled after being in ‘hard quarantine’.
