Daniil Medvedev is in the third Grand Slam semi-final and his first in Melbourne Park after a 7: 5, 6: 3, 6: 1 win against compatriot Andrey Rublev, whose level quickly fell in the scorching heat of Melbourne / p>

Medvedev’s recent triumph extends his winning streak to 19, and the fourth seed is now waiting for the quarter-finals winner from Rafael Nadal and Stefanos Tsitsipas

Immediately after the game, there were slightly worrying scenes when Medvedev asked the coach to treat his left leg on the pitch before his interview He insisted that this was only due to convulsions

The pair had previously met three times on tour, with Medvedev (who is a year older than Rublev at 24) having the upper hand in all encounters, although his last game at the US Open was a narrow three-set win and two tiebreakers were required

Both players held their ground for much of the first set, but a flawed 5-6 service game by Rublev would prove costly as he lost four direct points to take the opener

After a 43-shot exchange in the second set between the two, in which Andrey Rublev sat down to catch his breath, the commentary team noted that Medvedev was the mechanic of the two and was better off the “psychological war” conditions were prepared

“I’d love to see this,” Lleyton Hewitt said on Channel Nine of Medvedev’s approach to Rublev’s apparent fatigue

Although Rublev had a chance to break Medvedev after holding the serve, it was Medvedev who would make the most of his breakpoint chances and take the lead in straight sets

Rublev was broken early in the third movement and seemed to have come to terms with his fate, which was delivered a short time later by Medvedev
