Daniil Medvedev apologizes for ‘annoying’ comment on Australian Open win

Daniil Medvedev saved match point and recovered from two sets to love to defeat Felix Auger-Aliassime and reach his fifth Grand Slam semi-final.

The world number two is looking to become the first man in the Open era to follow a maiden Grand Slam title by winning the next major, but his chances hung by a thread when Canadian Auger-Aliassime won both first sets.

Medvedev fought back to take the third but lost match point at 4-5 in the fourth to save it with a big serve, take the set and clinch a 6-7(4) 3-6 7-6(2) 7-5 Victory 6-4 after four hours and 42 minutes.

The Russian now faces a rematch from last year’s semi-final against Stefanos Tsitsipas.
