US Open: a great experience enriches Daniil Medvedev | Tennis News
The world number 2, who has beaten Botic Van de Zandschulp 6-3, 6-0, 4-6, 7-5 in the last eight, will face 12th seed Felix Auger-Aliassime for a place in the title round . The 21-year-old Canadian came out on top when Carlos Alcaraz, blocked by his right captor, retired with a score of 3-6, 1-3.
Medvedev, 25, who failed in two major finals here in 2019 and Australia in February, is aiming for his first Grand Slam title and appears better prepared this time around.
“I’ve always said that experience helps me,” Medvedev said, adding that the trade is unlikely to hurt the Canadiens, who are in their first major semi-final.
“Sometimes experience isn’t everything, when I was in my first (US Open, 2019) Slam semi-final, I won it.”
Medvedev appeared on the course in Melbourne against Novak Djokovic, but the Serbian shredded the plot before he even got his hands on the book.
The Russian, who won nine matches in this final, is in New York with his psychologist Francisca Dauzet.
“2019 was my first breakthrough in Slam, so New York is already in my heart. I want to do a little better than the last two times and overcome this last, small, most difficult step. ”
