Medvedev keeps French Open hopes alive Danil Medvedev


PARIS. Second seed Daniil Medvedev moved into the third round of the French Open by beating Serbia’s Laslo Djere.

The 26-year-old US Open champion gained a routine 6-3 6-4 6-3 victory in Thursday’s opening match on Court Philippe Chatrier.

The Russian will face Serbia’s 28th seed Miomir Kecmanovic, who won in four sets against Alexander Bublik.

“It was a very tough match but I’m happy to win. I have a lot more to do to be remembered,” Medvedev said.

“Laslo was playing a bit better clay-court tennis but I managed to fight to put one more ball in.”

Medvedev, who had a hernia operation in April, has now won both of his matches in three sets after beating Argentina’s Facundo Bagnis 6-2 6-2 6-2 in the first round.

Medvedev, competing under a neutral flag in Paris, is one of the players who will not be allowed to compete at Wimbledon this year. BBC Sport.
