Although the Russian won only one title in 2022 (Los Cabos Open), he did perform in a consistent manner in most of the tournaments on the tour, reaching three more finals, including the Australian Open Championship. The US Open is the tournament that brought the best results for Medvedev. In the last three editions, the current world no. 1 reached at least semi-finals, having won the title in 2021 and lost in the finals of 2019.
We are witnessing the best year in the career of Nick Kyrgios. Despite the sheer number of controversies, the Australian seems to be in the form of his life as he keeps on performing in every tournament he plays.
The 27-year-old won an ATP 500 event this year at the Washington Open last month. However, his highlight of the year came a month before when he reached his maiden grand-slam final in the Wimbledon 2022.

Medvedev vs Kyrgios Prediction:
Medvedev vs Kyrgios is the clash of two of the most talented players on the tour. Both of them had a fiery start to the tournament. Medvedev is yet to drop a set, while Kyrgios has lost only one set in the first three matches.
Considering their form, it is hard to predict who will win. Medvedev has been nearly unstoppable in the US Open since 2019. World no. 1 is determined to replicate his last year’s performance to defend his title. However, if someone can beat Medvedev at the Flushing Meadows, it’s an in-form and focused Nick Kyrgios.
Prediction: Daniil Medvedev wins in Three Sets
