Medvedev won two matches in qualifying en route to the Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships 2018 (d. Nishikori) last week. He will now meet top-seeded Swiss Roger Federer, the 2014 and 2017 champion.

All three of Medvedev’s title wins have come over opponents playing on home soil. He defeated Alex de Minaur in the Sydney final, Steve Johnson in the Winston-Salem championship match and then-No. 12 Kei Nishikori in the Tokyo final.

The Russian No. 1 beat lucky loser Ricardas Berankis 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 to set his second FedEx ATP Head2Head meeting against Khachanov. Medvedev beat his compatriot at last year's Next Gen ATP Finals in four sets.
"I have no choice. We are both Russians. We are both playing at home. We are both motivated to win," Khachanov said of playing his friend. "We are friends off court, but on court we are rivals. I think we're going to have a great match."
Medvedev is one of the most in-form players in the world at the moment, recently capturing his third title of the season at the Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships 2018. Medvedev did not own a tour-level trophy when the year began, but the second seed could claim championship No. 4 this week, which would be his first on home soil.
