Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 2:6, 0:1

And now you can see the difference today. Daniil Medvedev also has the breakball against himself after a shaky service game with three (!) double faults. However, the 27-year-old serves the ace at the right moment and banishes the danger for the time being.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 2:6, 0:1

And immediately Yannick Hanfmann has to accept the next deficit! The German just doesn’t manage to put the pressure on immediately with his first serve. The Karlsruher quickly finds himself facing two more breakballs. Medvedev uses the second of these breakballs to make it 1-0.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 2:6

Daniil Medvedev grabs the first round! The Russian can use his first set point and deserves to win the first set.

That’s what makes a top player! Medvedev serves really well under pressure and turns the service game in his favor. There is the set ball for the 27-year-old!


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 2:5

Will it be exciting again? Hanfmann leads 30:0 and then has the “penalty kick” to 40:0 and thus three breakballs. However, Hanfmann leaves this lying around. Nevertheless, the German still gets the breakball here after a mistake by Medvedev.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 2:5

Of course, the Karlsruher would need four games won in a row. At least he gets through his serve for sure and shortens it to 2:5.

Unfortunately not! The Russian serves too well at the back and then makes it 5:1. Now it will be very difficult for Yannick Hanfmann.

Now, however, Hanfmann fights his way back and makes a debut. Can he perhaps steal the serve from Medvedev again?

In this phase, Hanfmann is actually just lagging behind. Medvedev has significantly better length and precision in his game.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 1:4

Medvedev keeps marching towards winning the set! The Russian keeps the ball well in play and then puts pressure on with his forehand. So he can use the first breakball directly and set it to 4:1.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 1:3

Now it’s getting very tight for Yannick Hanfmann! The German continues to struggle with his own serve. Even if he brings almost 65% of his first services into the field, he now has the breakballs against him again.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 1:3

However, that is now changing! Daniil Medvedev brings his serve through confidently and to zero. The Russian thus confirms his break.

In the end, the break actually goes to Medvedev, who brings himself back to the front. So far, neither of the two has been able to get his service through.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 1:1

Pure excitement in this important service game. Daniil Medvedev really makes the German sweat. This time Hanfmann’s stop is too long and the door is wide open for the Russian. There’s the next breakball.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 1:1

Hanfmann remains very brave and unpacks another stop. Again this is played too well and secures Hanfmann the point. A very important one in this case, because that’s how it goes after the debut.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 1:1

Hanfmann enchants the audience with an outstanding volley while sliding. However, he then conceded two strong returns from the Russian and was again faced with the breakball.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 1:1

To his chagrin, Medvedev made his second double fault on breakball of all places. So now everything is back in order.

Very strong stop from the movement of Yannick Hanfmann! Medvedev didn’t expect that at all and is facing the breakball for his part.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 0:1

Medvedev is also initially behind in his service, but then frees himself with a long rally and his first ace. Nevertheless, the Russian has to go over the debut after a slight forehand error.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 0:1

And then it happened! Yannick can only watch the balls fly in his face. The German has no chance to prevent the inevitable break.


Y. Hanfmann – D. Medvedev 0:0

The game starts with a serve from Yannick Hanfmann. This is completely caught on the wrong foot by the opponent’s good return game and so there are three break points for Medvedev.


It can start right away!

The two players are now on the pitch. After a short warm-up phase, you can finally start. Incidentally, Hanfmann and Medvedev will face each other for the first time at the gate.


Patience is required

The first women’s doubles semi-final is currently taking place on Center Court. After an exciting second round, the duel now goes into the Champions Tie Break! Accordingly, Hanfmann and Medvedev will have to wait at least 30 minutes.


Will Medvedev throw out the next German?

For that, Hanfmann has to take on Daniil Medvedev today. The Russian is the highest seeded player in the field after Alcaraz and Djokovic left. In the round of 16, Medvedev already threw a German out of the tournament in Alexander Zverev. The 27-year-old, who doesn’t really feel comfortable on clay, only had problems in the first set against the Spaniard Zapata Miralles. After the 3:6 in the first round, however, the Muscovite marched to victory.


The tournament of his life

Yannick Hanfmann seems to feel at home in Rome. The Karlsruher reached the round of 16 of an ATP Masters for the first time and faced Andrey Rublev there. He prevailed against the favored Russian in three sets and was able to rely on his consistency when serving. He will also need this today in order to perhaps be able to take another step.



Good day and hello to the ATP Masters in Rome! Today’s Thursday in the Italian capital includes the last two men’s quarterfinals. A German is also there. Yannick Hanfmann has to deal with Daniil Medvedev around 3 p.m.
