Medvedev faces Aliasim and Fernandez continues the dream
Russian Daniel Medvedev (Secondly ranked) qualified for the semi-finals of the US Open (Flashing Meadows) for the third consecutive season.

Medvedev put an end to the adventure of Dutchman Boutik van de Zandscholp, to meet in the semi-finals of the Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime, while Canadian Leila Fernandez continued her dream of eliminating Ukrainian Elina Svitolina.

Medvedev seemed to be on the way to an easy victory over the 25-year-old Dutchman, ranked 117 in the world, after winning the first two sets without resistance, but then suffered and lost the third before resolving matters in his favor in the fourth, ending the match 6-3, 6-0, 4-6, 7 -5.

After the end of his career at the first and third rounds in his first two participations in the American Championship in 2017 and 2018, Medvedev succeeded in reaching the round of four for the third time in a row, hoping to go this time to the end and win his first big title.

In 2019, the 25-year-old reached the final before losing to Spaniard Rafael Nadal, while his career ended last season in the round of four when he was eliminated by Austrian Dominic Thiem, who later won the title at the expense of German Alexander Zverev, but he misses this year’s edition due to injury.

“In the semi-finals again,” Medvedev said. I want to get a better result than the two previous times and take that extra step forward (winning the title) which is actually the hardest.”

And about the semi-final match, he said, “Playing against Felix or Carlos, I think it’s great for tennis, it’s amazing.”

Medvedev imposed his rhythm completely at the beginning of the match and hit early by snatching the first half to serve his Dutch opponent, then he repeated the matter in the fifth game to advance 4-1, but the latter refused to surrender and reduced the difference 3-5 on the Russian’s serve, but he returned and gave up his service in the ninth game, to be The decision was made in favor of the second seed 6-3 in about 35 minutes.

Medvedev bared his teeth in the second set and broke his opponent’s serve twice in the second and fourth games, allowing him to lead 5-0, before winning it 6-0 on the Dutchman’s serve.

But the Russian’s performance declined in the third set, which allowed Van de Zandscholp to return to the atmosphere and lead 4-2 after he snatched the fifth game on his opponent’s serve, which enabled him in the end to settle it 6-4.

Prior to this set, the Russian, who reached the Australian Open final at the beginning of the season before losing to Serbian Novak Djokovic and then to the quarter-finals of Roland Garros, where he lost to Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, did not lose any group in the matches he played in the current edition of the American Championship.

The Dutchman also seemed a different player in the fourth set, as he responded to Medvedev in the game, and even when the latter had the opportunity to decide the match in the tenth game by sending his opponent, Van de Zandscholp maintained his composure and saved the situation, realizing the tie 5-5, but he returned and ceded His serve in the eleventh game, which allowed the Russian to win the set 7-5 and meet in two hours and 22 minutes.

By getting rid of Van de Zandschulp, who became only the third player to reach the quarter-finals after qualifying in the American championship along with Frenchman Nicolas Escudi in 1999 and Luxembourgian Gilles Muller in 2008, Medvedev will enter the round of four for the fourth time in a Grand Slam.

To reach the final, Medvedev must now pass Oger Eliassim, who knocked out the promising Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, the 18-year-old, who knocked out Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas from the final price, and beat him with a set before the Spaniard withdrew in the second due to an injury to the right adductor muscle.

Laila Fernandez

Canadian teenager Leila Fernandez surprised the Ukrainian, ranked fifth in the world, Elina Svitolina, by defeating her 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7/5).

Since defeating defending champion Naomi Osaka in the third round, and then Germany’s Angelique Kerber in the eighth final, the Canadian (73rd seed) has continued to complete her dream in the championship.

And this is what her coach advised her: “Today, he told me to fight on every point. This is your first quarter-final in a major tournament. Don’t make it your last match here. Fight for your dream.

Fernandez will face Belarusian title candidate, Arina Sabalenka (second), in the semi-finals, who won 6-1, 6-4 over the Czech Barbora Krichkova (9).
