Medvedev into Marseille final as Ebden limps out
World number 287 Ebden left the court for a medical timeout after the first set, returning but with his movement clearly compromised
Daniil Medvedev made it into the Marseille ATP final after Aussie qualifier Matthew Ebden retired injured with their semi-final at 6-4, 3-0 in the Russian’s favour on Saturday.
The top seed and world number three will face a French foe in Sunday’s final, the winner between Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Ugo Humbert playing later Saturday.
World number 287 Ebden left the court for a medical timeout after the first set, returning but with his movement clearly compromised.
“It’s a real shame for Ebden,” sympathised Medvedev, who will take the world number two spot from Rafael Nadal in Monday’s latest ATP rankings.
“He’s had a dream week with this semi-final from qualifying.
“And today, up to his injury, he was almost playing better than me.
