With immense difficulty, we hand-picked a few of Friday’s must-see matches.

(29) Sebastian Korda v (7) Daniil Medvedev

Head-to-head: 0-1

Fourteen months have elapsed since Medvedev secured a comeback 4-6 6-1 6-3 win over Korda at the 2021 Rolex Paris Masters.

The American, armed with more experience on tour, will back himself to turn the tables against his older adversary after a strong start to 2023.
