Daniil Medvedev reached his fifth straight ATP Tour final with a 7-6 (7/5), 3-6, 6-3 win over fellow Russian Karen Khachanov at the Miami Open on Friday.
In Sunday’s championship match, Medvedev will face the winner of Saturday’s other semi-final between world number one Carlos Alcaraz of Spain and Italy’s Jannik Sinner.
The 27-year-old Medvedev, playing against his boyhood friend, survived a second-set comeback but his trademark precision strokeplay saw him through against the big-serving Khachanov.
The contest saw a series of long rallies as Medvedev fended off Khachanov’s thumping shots from the baseline and then pinned his opponent back on his service game.
Medvedev hit 13 aces and saved four of six break points as the match turned decisively in his favor when he broke Khachanov in the fourth game of the third set.
Medvedev won 82% (14 of 17) of his first-serve points in the final set.
