Tomas Machac will aim to progress to the fourth round in Roland Garros for the first time.

Daniil Medvedev advanced to the third round of French Open 2024 when his second-round opponent, Miomir Kecmanovic, retired in the second set. Medvedev was leading 6-1, 5-0 when play was stopped 55 minutes into the game on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

The fifth seed played some flawless tennis for the short time he was on the court, making just six unforced errors. The win meant Medvedev has improved to 4-0 in the pair’s head-to-head. The World No. #5 plays Czech Tomas Machac next and remains in the hunt for his second major. 

While Medvedev had it easy in the second round, Tomas Machac had to fight hard to get past Mariano Navone. Machac ultimately prevailed 6-2, 6-1, 3-6, 1-6, 6-1 in a second-round match lasting nearly three hours.

Daniil Medvedev vs Tomas Machac preview

Medevdev’s best result in 2024 is a quarter-final run at the ATP Masters 1000 event in Madrid. Machac made it to his maiden final at the Gonet Geneva Open before losing to Casper Ruud in straight sets. Norway’s Ruud picked his third Geneva Open trophy following wins in 2021 and 2022.

Giant killer Machac also overcame World No. #1 Novak Djokovic en route to the Geneva Open final. 

Medvedev and Machac are in the top half of the draw, and a win in the third round could put them on a collision course with Australian Alex de Minaur in the fourth round and possibly Holger Rune or Alexander Zverev in the last eight.

Where and how to watch the live streaming and TV broadcast of Tomas Machac vs Daniil Medvedev, French Open 2024, third round match in India?

The Daniil Medvedev and Tomas Machac third-round match at the French Open will be available for Indian viewers to enjoy on Sony Network’s television channels along with its streaming service SonyLiv in full high definition. 

Prediction

Tomas Machac may have succumbed to Daniil Medvedev in their last meeting in Indian Wells in straight sets. The born-again Machac, with a morale-boosting win against Novak Djokovic in his pocket, can take the fight to the Russian in their second career meeting.

There is no bigger or better stage for Machac to prove a point than at one of the four Grand Slam venues. The young Czech is playing his second main draw in Roland Garros and is in the third round for the first time. His previous main draw appearance was in 2020, where he lost to Taylor Fritz in the first round despite leading two sets to nil.

Medvedev will be keen to end a title drought that has lasted more than a year, with his last title coming at the Rome Masters in 2023, while Machac is yet to bag his first title on the ATP Tour.

Machac is 6-2 on clay this season, while Medvedev is 6-3 on the same surface – giving the Czech the edge, with one loss less than the Russian. Medvedev is 9-1 when playing a deciding set to 6-2 by Machac. Medvedev has won three of four five-setters played in 2024, while none of the matches played by Machac have gone the distance.

Should the match head into five sets, Medvedev will have the edge over Machac. Winning the first set could further aid Medvedev, who has a 17-1 record after bagging the first set, while Machac is on 13-2.

Daniil Medvedev bringing his usual gritty self to the match will be sufficient to take it home against Tomas Machac.

Result: Daniil Medvedev to win in four sets.
