American tennis player Mackenzie McDonald has made it into the second round at the 2021 ATP Indian Wells Masters in the United States. At this stage of the tournament, Mackenzie McDonald is set to play against Daniil Medvedev from Russia. 

Mackenzie McDonald enters this match having defeated James Duckworth in straight sets in the previous round of the tournament. It was a solid performance by McDonald as he controlled most of the match and didn’t allow his opponent to settle. It has been a modest season for Mackenzie McDonald as he defeated David Goffin at the US Open and that should give him some confidence as he enters this match. That being said, this is expected to be a tough match as Mackenzie McDonald is playing against the number 1 seed in Daniil Medvedev. 

Looking at Daniil Medvedev, the Russian has been in supreme form and enters this match having recently won the US Open. Medvedev defeated Novak Djokovic in the final of the US Open to win his first Grand Slam title. Following that tournament, Daniil Medvedev played the Laver Cup where he won his match against Denis Shapovalov. Daniil Medvedev has been in outstanding touch and he has quickly developed into an elite player on the ATP tour. Considering his recent results, I see Daniil Medvedev as the favorite to win this tournament. 

Mackenzie McDonald and Daniil Medvedev have played each other 4 times in the past with Daniil Medvedev winning on all 4 occasions. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at the Cincinnati Masters where Medvedev won in straight sets. Mackenzie McDonald is yet to win a set against Daniil Medvedev.
