Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Daniil Medvedev score and latest updates

Good morning and welcome to coverage of the second Australian Open men’s semi-final between Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Daniil Medvedev. Tsitsipas is desperate to claim the first grand slam title of his career but he will come up against an opponent, who has arguably been the best player in the world over the last six months. 

Tsitsipas has lost six of his eight matches against Medvedev, including a semi-final defeat at the Australian Open last year.  But Tsitsipas did win their last meeting at the 2021 French Open, winning in straight sets. 

“I’m headed towards the right direction and things look good for me so far,” Tsitsipas, the youngest of the four semi-finalists at 23, said. “And, well, with the right mindset and with the right attitude and with the right development throughout the tournament, my chances are pretty good.”

Medvedev is bidding to make his own bit of history by becoming the first man in the Open era to follow up a maiden grand slam title by winning the next major tournament.

“It’s a good challenge,” he said. “I’m two matches away. US Open gave me a lot of confidence. I need to continue fighting.”

In the quarter finals, Medvedev had to save a match point to get past Felix Auger-Aliassime.  “I never had this experience,” said the Russian. “I played some long matches but never like four hours and never won it to be able to play in two days.

“If we look at the best, they were able to do it somehow. I don’t know how. So, if I want to be a part of this group, even if I’m really far right now, I want to try to make it happen.

“I’m going to try to recover as well as possible, to be ready to play against Stefanos, because he’s a great player. I need to be at my best to beat him.”
