ATP Den Bosch Day 5 Predictions Including Daniil Medvedev vs Ilya Ivashka

Daniil Medvedev in action at the ATP Mallorca Open.

Day 5 at ATP Den Bosch will hopefully (if the weather allows it) see all four quarterfinal matches being played, with a star-filled lineup that includes Daniil Medvedev, who will return to #1 in the world on Monday, and defending champion Adrian Mannarino.

ATP Den Bosch Day 5 Predictions

Adrian Mannarino vs Brandon Nakashima

Head-to-head: Mannarino 1-1 Nakashima

Both matches between the pair were played earlier this year on American hard courts, and they split wins. The move to grass theoretically favors Mannarino, who tends to thrive on the surface and is the defending champion at this very tournament. After a very impressive win against De Minaur, Mannarino might just go all the way yet again judging by his great form.
Prediction: Mannarino in 2

Tim Van Rijthoven vs Hugo Gaston

Head-to-head: first meeting

Van Rijthoven is on an unbelievable run this week and he might just continue it against an opponent who’s never achieved anything of note on grass. The Dutch will be incredibly motivated after his sensational win over Taylor Fritz and with the backing of his home crowd his fairy tale might well continue into the weekend.

Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Karen Khachanov

Head-to-head: Auger-Aliassime 1-1 Khachanov

Khachanov is likely still wondering how he escaped Thursday against Majchrzak; the Pole was 4-0 up in the deciding set and had a match point, but Khachanov somehow found a way through. His level was, however, very far from what he needs to be a contender at Wimbledon, and very far from what he needs to beat someone like Auger-Aliassime, who goes into this match as a clear favorite to advance and make yet another deep grass run in his young career.

Daniil Medvedev vs Ilya Ivashka

Head-to-head: Medvedev 3-1 Ivashka

Medvedev will retake the first place in the world rankings on Monday, and there’d be no better way to celebrate that than with a title on a surface he has often struggled with. After a first career win against Gilles Simon in what was a potentially tricky first encounter, Medvedev should be favored to make it through here. Despite not being as good on grass as on hard courts, Medvedev is still an incredibly complete player and a threat on all surfaces.
Prediction: Medvedev in 2
