Thiem Wins Barcelona Open

ATP 500- Barcelona Open

Medvedev, 23, entered the 2019 clay-court with a 2-11 win/loss record on clay at the ATP level.

"Paris is still pretty far away, I'm happy with my clay form right now, this is actually my biggest clay title - this one here", said Thiem, who lost to Nadal in last year's French Open final. Medvedev made an impressive start to his clay season as he made the Monte Carlo Masters semi-final before losing to eventual runner-up Dusan Lajovic. It was his first final on clay since last year's French Open, where he also lost to the Spaniard. Since then he's continued to improve his ATP Ranking and now sits at a career high of No.8 in April this year. Improving his game on clay now makes Medvedev a legitimate threat on all surfaces as the Russian continues his rise and improvement.

"And I think you still need to beat Nadal".

Tsitsipas has an all court game which means he probably won't focus just on clay but his upbringing on the clay courts of Southern Europe and his results over the past two seasons have proven that the red dirt holds no fear for him. "When I joined the top 100, I was the second youngest player there". He defeated Kei Nishikori on Saturday to reach the final. His stunning victory over Daniil Medvedev in the Barcelona Open final suggests he could launch a serious assault at the French Open.

The 28-year-old had come through the longest match of the year in her quarter-final against Kristina Mladenovic earlier in the week, but had enough energy to brush off a poor opening set. Assuming he can stay fit the future looks very "red" for the current World No.5.

Meanwhile, World number three Petra Kvitova won her second WTA title of 2019 as she beat Estonia's Anett Kontaveit 6-3, 7-6 (7/2) in the final of the tournament in Stuttgart on Sunday. But Thiem has already notched up an incredible four wins over Nadal on clay. The only question left for him to answers is can he win the big one, the men's singles at Roland Garros?
