They have split their two meetings so far this year. While the World No. 1 came through in four sets at the Australian Open, Kyrgios turned the tables on Medvedev in three sets in their most recent meeting at the Montreal Masters last month.
Kyrgios will be entering their upcoming face-off with a 3-1 lead in their head-to-head and will look to end Medvedev’s reign as the world’s top-ranked player.
The mouthwatering encounter is expected to find a place on Arthur Ashe Stadium’s evening session.
