Daniil Medvedev is getting close to winning his first Grand Slam.
The World No. 2 should be too classy for Felix Auger Aliassime in the US Open semi-finals and is backed to win in 4 sets.
Medvedev has won 13 of his last 14 matches. He reached the Tokyo Olympics quarter-finals to get back in action on hard courts.
The Russian followed up by winning the Canada Masters. He beat Hubert Hurkacz and John Isner before taking out Reilly Opelka 6-4 6-3 in the final.
The World No. 2 was looking good at the Cincinnati Masters, beating Grigor Dimitrov and Pablo Carreno Busta in straight sets before a 2-6 6-3 6-3 defeat to Andrey Rublev in the semi-finals.
Medvedev didn’t drop a set in his first four matches at the US Open, beating Daniel Evans in the fourth round followed by a 6-3 6-0 4-6 7-5 win against Botic Van De Zandschulp in the quarter-finals.
Auger Aliassime, meanwhile, reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals, taking a month off before returning to action on hard courts.
The Canadian lost against Max Purcell in the Olympic Games first round. It was the start of a bad run of form that saw him knocked out in the second round in Washington and first round in Canada.
The World No. 15 improved at the Cincinnati Masters, beating Matteo Berrettini before a 3-set loss to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter finals.
Aliassime brought that form into the US Open. He beat Roberto Bautista Agut in 5 sets and Francis Tiafoe 4-6 6-2 7-6 6-4 before receiving a gift in the quarter-finals, 6-3 3-1 up against Carlos Alcaraz before the 18-year-old retired.
Medvedev is 1-0 against Auger Aliassime, winning 3-6 6-4 7-6 at the 2018 Canada Masters.
