And one of his matches finished at 3.40 am. Twice he was down two sets to love. It's incredible he got so close.

His fault for toiling against a no name Finn, a Portuguese, and letting go of the 4th set against Hurkasz. He played 3 consecutive 5 set matches to end the tournament. I am not sure we’ll see that happen anytime soon. Yes, he did well to make it that far, especially considering he was basically out of the tournament in round 1.

He’ll rue his missed chances of winning by playing too passively and allowing so many matches to go the distance. Hopefully he starts being as aggressive as he was in the first 2 sets today.

If I were him I would take a couple months off, though he is defending points a lot of points this spring. Could be a lose lose situation for him. Too bad.

I assume Rotterdam is next for Medvedev?
 
Tennis takes the Saudi money ...
https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2024/feb/28/tennis-atp-agrees-partnership-with-saudi-arabia-pif
Saudi Arabia’s influence has stretched deeper into men’s tennis after the ATP Tour agreed a “multiyear strategic partnership” with the kingdom’s Public Investment Fund.

As a result of the deal the ATP rankings, plus the year-end world No 1 award, will be named after the PIF. The PIF will also have on‑court branding at major ATP 1000 events at Indian Wells, Miami, Madrid and Beijing, as well as the season-ending ATP Finals in Turin.
