Top seed Daniil Medvedev has had a fine start to his 2022 grass season as he made it through to the final of the Libema Open on Saturday. The Russian had to overcome a tough challenge in the form of Adrian Mannarino who gave him a run for his money. Medvedev will go up against unseeded Dutch player Tim van Rijthoven in the final. Van Rijthoven put in an exceptional performance to overcome second seed Felix Auger-Aliassime in the semis in a match that lasted the full three sets. It was a victory to remember for the Dutchman who will perhaps play the biggest match of his career on Sunday. It will be important for Medvedev to win his first grass-court tournament of the season ahead of Wimbledon but his opponent will not give up without a fight.

Medvedev’s ability to find a way to win despite a lack of rhythm has been a highlight of his performances this week in the Netherlands. The win over Mannarino was solid rather than sensational, but Medvedev will be pleased with how he handled a true grass-court threat in the form of the Frenchman’s flat-hitting.
