<h2>Daniil Medvedev (10) vs. Dusan Lajovic</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Medvedev - Lajovic Betting Odds"><strong>Saturday, April 20, Monte Carlo</strong></a></p><p>Dusan Lajovic backed up the biggest win of his career against world No.5 Dominic Thiem on Thursday to become the first player through to the semi-finals in Monte Carlo. The 28-year-old Serbian ended Lorenzo Sonego’s dream run at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters with a 6-4, 7-5 win over the Italian qualifier in one hour and 47 minutes. As we predicted in our <a href="" target="_blank" title="Best Value Bets for Monte Carlo Masters Day 6: Lajovic vs. Sonego">Monte Carlo Masters Day 6 analysis</a>, Sonego couldn’t find the answer to Lajovic’s heavy topspin and kick serve with the Italian ending the match with only four winners and 12 unforced errors from the backhand side.</p><p>Lajovic will next take on Daniil Medvedev, who pulled off the biggest win of his career on Friday at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters after a 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 victory against world No.1 and two-time champion Novak Djokovic. The 23-year-old Russian broke serve five times and won 42.86% of the points on Djokovic’s serve to reach his maiden ATP Masters 1000 semi-final. Despite facing one of the most consistent players in the game, Medvedev proved too solid from the baseline to the Serbian with just 21 unforced errors to 47 from his opponent.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;MEDVEDEV MAGIC ✨&lt;a href=\"\"&gt;@DaniilMedwed&lt;/a&gt; defeats the World No. 1 to move into the &lt;a href=\";amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#RolexMCMasters&lt;/a&gt; semi-finals! 👏 &lt;a href=\";amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#Tecnifibre&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— ATP Tour (@ATP_Tour) &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;19 de abril de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p>These two players will face each other for the second time in their career with Medvedev emerging victorious in their previous encounter at the 2018 VTB Kremlin Cup in two easy sets.</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, Daniil is the favourite at 1/2 (1.50) with <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join William Hill &amp; Start Playing Today!">William Hill</a> while <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a> offers 7/4 (2.75) for Lajovic to reach the final. Medvedev has one of the best two-handed backhands in the game and is a very tough matchup for the Serbian. Adding to this, Medvedev should play the important points better against a player who is not very strong under pressure. With this in mind, our suggestion is to add Daniil’s moneyline to your <a href="" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a>. On the other hand, betting on Medvedev’s -3 game handicap at 83/100 (1.83) with <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a> is also an interesting approach for this match.</p>
