Auger Aliassime vs Medvedev: prediction for the US Open match
On September 10, Felix Auger Aliassime takes on Daniil Medvedev in the US Open semifinal. What to expect from the opponents? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Felix Auger Aliassime
This is the first time in the US Open semifinal for Auger Aliassime.Earlier this year, the Canadian tennis player reached the semifinals at Wimbledon. Auger Aliassime started his New York campaign with a hard-earned victory over Evgeny Donskoy. The Canadian needed three sets to defeat the Russian, and he won all of his sets on tie-breaks.
In the following rounds, Auger Aliassime eliminated Bernabe Zapata Miralles (7-6, 6-3, 6-2), Roberto Bautista Agut (6-3, 6-4, 4-6, 3-6, 6-3), and Frances Tiafoe (4-6, 6-2, 7-6, 6-4). The quarterfinal was a walkover: Auger Aliassime's opponent Carlos Alcaraz withdrew during the second set (6-3, 3-1).
Medvedev is in fantastic shape. He hasn't had any difficulties at the current tournament, except maybe when he lost one set to Botik van de Zandschulp (6-3, 6-0, 4-6, 7-5). However, he still overcame the handicap offered by bookmakers on his victory.
In all of his other matches at the US Open, Medvedev won in three sets. The World №2 defeated Richard Gasquet (6-4, 6-3, 6-1), Dominik Koepfer (6-4, 6-1, 6-2), Pablo Andujar (6-0, 6-4, 6-3), and Daniel Evans (6-3, 6-4, 6-3).
Auger Aliassime has played 4 tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
In 3 of Medvedev's last 5 matches, under 9,5 games were played in the first set.
Medvedev is the favourite of this fixture. He looks amazing right now and few people doubt that he won't make it to the final. Moreover, he has defeated Auger Aliassime before, and the Canadian should become a problem for Medvedev.
Our prediction - handicap (-6) games to Medvedev.
