The 2nd semi-final tie is all set for Friday night, we’ve saw Stefanos Tsitsipas took down Jannik Sinner before Daniil Medvedev derailed Felix Auger-Aliassime’s strong start from 0-2 to 3-2 in the end that completed a stunning rebound from the reigning US Open men’s champion.
Bugger for Auger-Aliassime where he fired off really well at the beginning even though the 1st set spell was really competitive which reflected his 2-0 lead headstart. Yes, he battled so hard against a grand slam winning opponent, but just couldn’t match the 1st half momentum where he had to make up some lost time & he’s also been hesistant at times that left limited time to execute his way.
And hats off to Daniil Medvedev with the trilling Quarter-Final win, he was almost on the brink of elimination at one point in straight sets after a 0-2 lead. However, he managed to regroup himself when Medvedev was being patient which gave him time to nail down his opponent’s weaknesses, that pragmatic 2nd half approach alongside a decent lead he kept during the 3rd-5th sets helped him shift maximum speed against Auger-Aliassime & nailed towards the finish line first.
All eyes on Tsitsipas v Medvedev now in a last year’s repeat semi-final also on this Friday night, will Medvedev advance into the Final once more & go one better or is it going to be Tsitsipas this time with his possible 2nd grand slam final meeting since last year at the Roland Garros?
For now, it’s the women’s semi-finals day today with two matches taking place tonight where one of them includes Australia’s own Ash Barty v American Madison Keys.
