Daniil Medvedev meets Stefanos Tsitsipas in a mouth-watering second Semi-Final at the 2022 Australian Open on Friday, and we’ve picked out our best betting tips on the tie.
Number two and four seed collide in an epic second Semi-Final in the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne from approximately 8.30am GMT.
Daniil Medvedev v Stefanos Tsitsipas – Prediction
With defending champion Novak Djokovic absent from this year’s Australian Open, Medvedev was immediately installed as the favourite to get his hands on this trophy.
The Russian opened his Grand Slam account at last year’s US Open and is bidding to go one better than his runner-up spot here 12 months ago.
Medvedev enjoyed a flawless run to the Quarter-Finals before battling back from two sets down to complete a stunning comeback win over Canadian youngster Felix Auger-Aliassime.
Tsitsipas will take some encouragement from that patchy early showing from the second seed last time out as he bids to avenge last year’s defeat at this stage of the competition.
The Greek ace did defeat Medvedev in the Quarter-Finals at Roland Garros last year and comes into their latest clash the fresher of the two, having swept aside Jannik Sinner in straight sets on Wednesday.
However, Medvedev will have benefitted from a day’s recovery and we expect him to come out on top here in either four or five sets to extend his dominant head-to-head record to seven wins from nine meetings.
