Miami Open: Medvedev Races Past Halys To Reach Quarter-Final

Daniil Medvedev swept aside Frenchman Quentyn Halys to advance to the quarter-finals at the Miami Open.

He won 6-4 6-2 in just over an hour despite playing late into the night.

This was a result of the fact that Medvedev's contest with Halys was interrupted by a lengthy rain and was also preceded by a lengthy contest between Adrian Mannarino and Christopher Eubanks.

"I thought it was going to be cancelled," said Medvedev after coming through a tricky situation without much fuss. 

"I'm really happy I was able to play not so bad, I'm usually asleep at midnight."

"I'm really happy that I managed to play not so badly because it's not easy...

"When you play at midnight, I mean I usually sleep at midnight, so try to play some tennis there," Medvedev added.

The Russian will next face American qualifier Christopher Eubanks for a place in the semi-finals.

Eubanks beat his opponent Mannarino 7-6(2) 7-6(5) to continue his remarkable breakthrough run.

He felt good about reaching his first Masters 1000 quarter-final, saying it was really special.

"Just like yesterday, it felt good, this feels great," Eubanks said.

"Just something about all of the delays and the stopping, the starting, the warming up and cooling down and warming up, it makes a match like this even sweeter and to think it was for my first Masters 1000 quarter-final is really, really special.

"It feels great, it feels good right now. 

"Today feels a little bit more like, ‘Hey, I’m here. Trust it'. 

"I’m playing well and let’s just see how long we can keep this thing going.”
