Daniil Medvedev vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Tips, Prediction & Preview

Familiar foes Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas renew their rivalry on one of the biggest stages of tennis when they clash in the Australian Open semi-finals on Friday night.

It’s a rematch of the 2021 Australian Open semi-finals, which Medvedev won in routine straight sets before going down to Novak Djokovic in the final.

Medvedev would have course avenge that defeat with a swashbuckling performance in the US Open final where he crushed the World No. 1 in straight sets for his first Grand Slam title.

With Djokovic missing this Australian Open, Medvedev was the clear favourite to pick up his second major – and while the Russian has faced his fair share of obstacles, he’s still on track.

Medvedev needed four sets to get by Nick Kyrgios and Maxime Cressy before coming back from two sets down and saving match point to outlast Felix Auger-Aliassime in a match that ended after midnight and lasted almost five hours.

It was one of the must physically taxing matches of the tournament, but Medvedev appeared fresh throughout the latter stages and he shouldn’t have much trouble backing up 48 hours later.

By contrast, Tsitsipas produced his best tennis in over six months to ease past Jannik Sinner in comfortable straight sets.

It was easily Tsitsipas’s best performance since last year’s French Open – the Greek fired 30 winners and didn’t face a single break point as he completely outplayed the in-form Sinner in every aspect of the game.

After undergoing elbow surgery during the off-season, Tsitsipas hadn’t looked anywhere near his best all summer in Australia, dropping sets to Sebastian Baez and Benoit Paire, along with being stretched to five by Taylor Fritz, but his quarter-final win over Sinner was a statement of intent.

However, even if Tsitsipas does repeat that same level, overcoming his match-up issue with Medvedev is another thing altogether.

Tsitsipas won their last meeting, but that was on clay – Medvedev’s worst surface – with the Russian winning all four encounters on outdoor hardcourt. At his best, Medvedev simply gets everything back, and even though Tsitsipas has plenty of firepower, he simply can’t hit through the World No. 2.

Before the quarter-finals, I would have given Tsitsipas no chance and for Medvedev to win this in straights. After crushing Sinner, I think Tsitsipas can be competitive if brings the same level, but Medvedev will relentlessly target the backhand and over the course of five sets, the Russian should prove too solid and advance into his second straight Australian Open final.
