Fifth seed Daniil Medvedev will take on Tomas Machac in a highly anticipated third-round clash at the 2024 French Open on Saturday, June 1.

Medvedev opened his campaign with a 6-3, 6-4, 5-7, 6-3 victory over Dominik Koepfer in the first round. Up against Miomir Kecmanovic in the second round, Medvedev began well, breaking serve in the fourth game. Another break in the following game ensured he comfortably sealed the first set.

Medvedev raced to a 3-0 lead in the second before Kecmanovic called a time-out. Kecmanovic was forced to retire two games later because of an injury, handing Medvedev a 6-1, 5-0 victory.

Navone fought back in sets 3 and 4 to level the score at two sets each. Machac outclassed Navone in the last set, however, breaking serve four times en route to a 6-2, 6-1, 3-6, 1-6, 6-1 victory.

A tantalizing encounter awaits fans as Daniil Medvedev and Tomas Machac prepare to face off in the third round of the 2024 French Open.

Medvedev has seen patches of brilliance on the red dirt so far this season but has struggled to find overall consistency. He avoided a major hiccup in his first-round encounter in Paris but put up a much better showing in his second round.

Machac, meanwhile, has carried his good form from Geneva into Paris, sealing a couple of impressive wins so far. He showed great mental resolve to plow through his second-round five-set epic, closing it out in the final set with much ease.

We can expect an incredibly tight encounter between the pair given their similar styles of play. The winner could ultimately boil down to who serves better and takes the greater initiative on the return. Dictating play from the baseline, while keeping the points will also be in order.

Pick: Medvedev in four sets.
