Powerful Medvedev steals spotlight in Sofia

Big-hitting Daniil Medvedev stole the show at the Sofia Open on Saturday as he punched his way to an emphatic 6-2 6-4 victory over former world number six Gael Monfils to set up a final clash against Hungarian Marton Fucsovics. 

The Russian delighted the crowd in Arena Armeets with a barrage of sizzling winners as he broke twice in the first five games and never took his foot off the pedal to clinch the opening set.

The Frenchman put up more of a fight in the second and even managed to break to love in the eighth game.

But the 22-year-old Medvedev, hauling his giant 1.96 meter frame around the court, kept his composure to seal the win on his first match point.
