Russian tennis superstar Daniil Medvedev has made it into the final 16 at the 2021 ATP Rogers Cup in Canada. At this stage of the tournament, Daniil Medvedev is set to play against James Duckworth from Australia. 

James Duckworth enters this match having defeated Jannik Sinner from Italy in the previous round. It was an impressive win for Duckworth as he showed great composure to defeat a strong player. During the win, James Duckworth impressed with his serving as the Australian tennis player won around 75% of his service points which allowed him to win all of his service games. This is expected to be a much bigger challenge for James Duckworth as he is playing against the number 1 seed in Daniil Medvedev. 

On the other side of the coin, Daniil Medvedev enters this match having won her previous outing in 3 sets. Medvedev lost her opening set but she fought back strongly to win the final 2 sets and the match. Daniil Medvedev had a strong tournament at the Olympics in Tokyo and he is entering this tournament in decent form. Daniil Medvedev has an outstanding record this part of the season and he is looking as someone who is going to be very tough to beat. 

This will be the first time that Daniil Medvedev and James Duckworth will be playing each other at an ATP tournament. Considering no previous head-to-head matches between these two players have taken place, this should be an exciting tennis contest with no prior baggage being brought into this contest.

Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Daniil Medvedev will win this match. Medvedev is the stronger player and he has an outstanding record in North America. James Duckworth is the weaker player and I don't see her having what it takes to challenge in this match. I see Daniil Medvedev winning this match in straight sets.
