Daniil Medvedev may have captured four ATP Tour titles since the start of last year, but the Russian made a significant breakthrough at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters on Thursday.

The 23-year-old defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 to advance to his first ATP Masters 1000 quarter-final after one hour and 45 minutes. Medvedev extends his unbeaten FedEx ATP Head2Head record against the #NextGenATP Greek to four matches, following three wins in hard-court encounters last year.

The 6'6" right-hander earned 80 per cent of points behind his first serve (20/25) to secure his second Top 10 victory (2-11). Medvedev claimed his first win over Top 10 opposition at 2017 Wimbledon, defeating Stan Wawrinka in four sets.

The Sofia Open winner becomes the first player to reach 20 tour-level victories this season (20-6). Medvedev has now reached the quarter-finals or better at four of his eight tournament appearances this year.

Tsitsipas was bidding to reach his second career ATP Masters 1000 quarter-final. The sixth seed claimed four consecutive Top 10 victories to advance to the Rogers Cup final last year (l. to Nadal).

Medvedev will meet World No. 1 Novak Djokovic or American Taylor Fritz in the quarter-finals. The 10th seed pushed Djokovic to four sets in their third FedEx ATP Head2Head meeting (0-3) at the Australian Open in January and is yet to meet Fritz at tour-level.
