Alcaraz, with his offensive, risky and dizzying tennis, has not given up a single set on his tour of the Californian desert, where he longs to enter a select list of winners in which the five titles of Federer and Djokovic shine, and the three of Nadal.

On his side Medvedev, a defensive specialist, accumulates a streak of

19 victories in a row

, with titles in Rotterdam, Dubai and Doha, and in Indian Wells he has resisted several physical mishaps to settle his pending account in this contest, in which he had never before passed the round of 16.

"I am an ambitious guy. I want to play against the best players in the world," Alcaraz stressed.

"I always say that if you want to be the best you have to beat the best and I would say that Daniil is the best player right now", he completed.

The precedents between the two are limited to a comfortable victory in three sets by Medvedev two years ago at Wimbledon, which the Muscovite does not trust at all.

"Definitely (Alcaraz) was not the same player that he is now," he stressed.

"In a way, it will be like a first match between us," she added.
