Carlos Alcaraz’s path to the US Open finals initially appeared challenging, but favorable outcomes in other matches have left him in a fresh condition for the semifinals. He avoided formidable opponents like Cameron Norrie and Jannik Sinner. His toughest rival, Alexander Zverev, was fatigued from a long previous match, reducing the challenge to the top seed. At just 20, Alcaraz is the youngest player to reach three Grand Slam semifinals in a single season since Novak Djokovic in 2007. He boasts an impressive 84% win rate in Grand Slam tournaments, second only to Bjorn Borg before turning 21. Despite winning the US Open in 2022 and Wimbledon recently, he faced a semifinal setback at the French Open due to the grand stage pressure. Alcaraz aims to defend his US Open title, a notoriously unpredictable tournament, and become the first player to do so since Roger Federer’s 2004-2008 streak. Winning would also make him the first to reach back-to-back finals since Novak Djokovic in 2015-2016.

Daniil Medvedev’s impressive comeback from a break down in all three sets secured a straight-set victory over Andrey Rublev in the quarterfinals, a relief considering the challenging New York conditions. The intense heat made extended court time a potential detriment to his semifinal chances. Medvedev’s mental fortitude has helped him consistently outperform top players like Tsitsipas, Rublev, Sinner, and Zverev. However, he faces pressure against Carlos Alcaraz, whom he struggled against in their recent meetings. His previous game plans against Alcaraz at Wimbledon and Indian Wells were ineffective, making tactical adjustments crucial for this semifinal clash. Medvedev’s inspiration can come from his remarkable hardcourt Grand Slam record, including a close 2019 US Open final against Rafael Nadal and a dominant victory over Djokovic in the 2021 final. With a 5-5 record against world number ones, Medvedev’s victories against Djokovic have set him apart from others on the tour in high-profile events.

Head to head

Carlos Alcaraz leads 2-1. Carlos Alcaraz is considered the favorite against most players, except Novak Djokovic, on any surface, including his upcoming match against Daniil Medvedev. However, Medvedev has previously shown his strength in hardcourt Grand Slams between 2019 and 2021, suggesting he could be a formidable opponent in these conditions. If Medvedev can replicate his past performances, he may offer a tougher challenge than he did in their recent Wimbledon semifinal encounter.
