Tennis: Karen Khachanov cracks Daniil Medvedev in Monte-Carlo

Daniil Medvedev broke down... again. The world number 4, under pressure from his Russian compatriot Karen Khachanov (17th), once again lost his nerve on Thursday in the round of 16 in Monte-Carlo and lost 6-3, 7-5. Medvedev had already succumbed to anger the day before against Gaël Monfils and lost his concentration during three games before returning to the game. Against Khachanov, the incident occurred at the very end of the game and cost him the match.

A ball from his opponent announced as good but clearly in the corridor gave Khachanov two break points. Medvedev saved the first but followed up with a double fault to allow his opponent to lead 6-5 service to follow. Then Medvedev, in a gesture of great violence, threw his racket backwards against the wall at the back of the court, without hurting or touching anyone. However, he started the last game with a penalty point and could not prevent Khachanov from finishing.

“I'm happy because it's the first time I beat him since 2018” in the semi-final in Moscow, said Khachanov, silver medalist at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021. “Finally, I reach the quarter-finals” in Monte-Carlo, underlined the one who had never yet gone beyond the round of 16, reached in 2018 and 2023. He will face Stefanos Tsitsipas (12th) or Alexander Zverev (5th) on Friday for a place in the semi-finals. -finals.
