Nadal received a free pass into Sunday's final (4 p.m., Sportsnet One) when 16-seeded Frenchman Gaël Monfils withdrew with an ankle injury. I need to relax and see in two hours if I'll be fine to play another match.

Medvedev, 23, topped fellow Russian Karen Khachanov 6-1, 7-6 (6) on Saturday afternoon to advance to his first ATP Masters 1000 final.

"It's extra special, " Medvedev said of facing Nadal for the first time.

This is evidenced by some stunning 2019 hard court numbers.

The serve was the difference for Medvedev, who won 89 percent - 33 of 37 - of his first-service points to 59 percent for his opponent.

Juventus are however still very much interested in offloading the forward it seems. "I feel this is a great opportunity for me". It was his second hat-trick for the Club having also hit three against Huddersfield Town in April this year.

"I started the second set thinking I was not playing bad, just things went so quick and everything against me", he said.

"It was obvious that when you play against local guy, Canadian, the crowd would be mostly on his side", Khachanov said. With this in mind, it's hard to disagree hugely with market lines and Medvedev looks justified as favourite to likely meet Nadal in tomorrow's final. "I felt it. I say, I didn't roll it like full, but I roll it a little bit, enough for me to be careful", Monfils said. "It was OK because I was able to run a lot in the next game". The match is scheduled from 3 pm local time (8 pm August 10 BST) and you can find the Daniil Medvedev v Karen Khachanov live streaming options along with its preview, head to head and tips here. Medvedev and Khachanov will square off in one of the semi-final matches on Saturday. "I showed today that I'm still a fighter".

"We grew up together". "We know each other pretty well".

Austrian second seed Dominic Thiem hit the wall yesterday in a 6-3, 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Russia's eighth-seeded Daniil Medvedev in the ATP Montreal Masters quarter-finals. "I couldn't expect to come from Kitzbuhel to here and go all the way". "This is just not enough in the quarter-finals of a Masters 1000, especially against a guy like Daniil, who is in a great shape, who is playing wonderful tennis". "Before the match, I hadn't thought about that, but I quickly understood it was going to be the match for me to become the top one in Russian Federation, maybe top eight in the world".

"I won't be intimidated".
