I'm increasingly warming to Andrey Rublev.

He's almost a little bit of a "forgotten man" in the Next Gen discussion.

He also possesses something which eludes 99% of his contemporaries:

I’ve lost a lot of respect. He’s basically Ferrer 2.0. Gritty player but can’t beat top players

While he's charming in doing so, he already sounded a bit defeated in his press conference re: Medvedev SF match upcoming. It's gotta be tough to get that breakthrough win, but it needs to happen in order to be taken seriously.

Rublev has never won a set against Medvedev, huh? And Rublev looks bad since the MC final. He isn't playing like between late 2019- early 2021. He barely beat Paire and Monfils, 2 guys who aren't even top100 in the ATP Race. PCB is in much better form and he didn't exist today. Rublev's chances are about as high as Chardy against Djokovic.lol

Zverev-Tstisipas... Based on their last 3 matches, huge advantage for Zverev. Tsitsipas lost to Opelka, saved set point against Korda and lost sets to Sonego and Auger. If Zverev keeps this level it should be a quick 2-0. But Zverev also has tendance to self-destruct against Tsitsipas. I remember his epic choke in the 1st set in Beijing 2019. In the WTF 2019 he beat Nadal and Medvedev in 2 but only won 5 games against Tsitsipas. RG this year, the first 2 sets were awful, his level (from the R4 and QF) dropped massively in SF. Tsitsipas is clearly a bad matchup. So, maybe his old demons will resurface again. But still think he he wins and it'll show how much he has improved recently.
PS... I'd totally forgotten the Acapulco final. Zverev won 6-4 7-6 so maybe he's found the key, at least on HC..

Assuming it's Medvedev/Zverev right now it'd be 50-50. But maybe I'll lean towards 1 after the SF. If Zverev struggles a lot against Tsitsipas, he loses the final. If he takes the semi in 2 quick sets Imo he wins the final as well.

Finally a masters event with the top 4 in the semis!
I think Medvedev and Zverev are in (much) better form than their respective opponents, and Medvedev likes beating Zverev in masters finals so my pick is Medvedev. Let's see what happens!

Zero votes for Stefanos, so I'll throw my hat in the ring there

I think it's Medvedev's for the taking, but I have Stefanos as 2nd favorite. He has the H2H edge over Z

Not this version of Z. This is Z fighter Z we're talking about.

I think it's got to be the professor. Zverev is the only one who really even has much of a chance against him, but it ain't much of one. Certainly on a hard court he owns all these guys. Could see that Zverev-Tsitsipas one going long too, and the winner being tired tomorrow.

Tsitsi seems to be a bad matchup for Zverev, but Medvedev is a bad matchup for both Tsitsi and Zverev, and I don't see him losing to Rublev. Medvedev should take this if he holds up physically
