Although physically impaired after twisting his ankle in the middle of the match, Medvedev overcame Zverev in 3 sets. The Russian is qualified for the quarter-finals.
Daniil Medvedev (6th in the world), with courage and adrenaline, despite the pain of a twisted ankle in the middle of the match, qualified for the quarter-finals of the Indian Wells Masters 1000, overthrowing 6-7 ( 5/7), 7-6 (7/5), 7-5 Alexander Zverev (14th), Tuesday.
This victory is the 17th in a row for the Russian, who remains in three tournaments won in Rotterdam, Doha and Dubai. Which makes him one of the two big favorites for the title, with Carlos Alcaraz, seeded number one in the absence of Novak Djokovic.
But we will have to see how the condition of Medvedev’s ankle evolves in the next few hours, as he reaches this stage of the event for the first time in the Californian desert, where he will be up against the Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich (28th ), winner 6-3, 6-4 of the Chilean Cristian Garin (97th).
