” Tsitsipas Senior has been repeatedly warned for coaching – and was later in this match as well – but it was mainly an indication of just what this match meant to Medvedev. After a quality opening set was won by Medvedev, the encounter descended into chaos as the Russian received a visible obscenity warning after gesturing to the crowd, prompting Medvedev to scream at the umpire , Jaume Campistol, throughout the changeover from his bench and criticise him for not addressing the coaching he could hear being directed at Tsitsipas by his father and coach, Apostolos. a small cat. GETTY 4 Tsitsipas was outclassed by his Russian opponent There is bad blood between the world number two and Tsitsipas dating back to a fiery clash in Miami four years ago and exacerbated by their very different characters. Medvedev thrives off confrontation, while Tsitsipas is a far more sensitive and introverted man who found it difficult to handle the vitriol that was generated from the row over his long toilet breaks at the US Open last year. “If you don’t, you are – how can I say it – a small cat,” he said. This was their ninth meeting and second in a row in the semi-finals here, with Medvedev winning comfortably 12 months ago after Tsitsipas’ big victory over Nadal. “You can have a proper go through the match beforehand and afterward, but Stefanos can solve the problems. The Greek came into the tournament with doubts over his fitness following elbow surgery, but he was in top form against Jannik Sinner in the quarter-finals, while Medvedev survived an almighty scrap against Felix Auger-Aliassime, recovering from two sets down and saving a match point. By the fourth set, Eva Asderaki-Moore, a prominent Greek umpire and a tournament referee, stood in the tunnel by Tsitsipas’ team box." “I feel very lucky that I won once in 2009 but I never thought about another chance in 2022.

There was almost nothing to choose between them in a high-quality first set, but it was Medvedev who came from 4-1 down to take the tie-break. GETTY 4 Medvedev will now meet Nadal in the final in the hope of winning his second major The Russian then retrieved an early break in the second before a double fault to drop serve again and a warning for a visible obscenity prompted his meltdown after nine games. “They’ve been targeting me already a long time,” said Tsitsipas, who also said he did not hear his father and that he has told him to stop. “His father can talk every point,” screamed Medvedev at Jaume Campistol. “Are you stupid? I’m talking to you, look at me. “I feel I have been a victim of that for a long time now. How can you be so bad in the semi-final of a grand slam?” After Tsitsipas clinched the set, Medvedev had more words with Campistol regarding his coaching complaints, ending by calling the official a “small cat”. I love coming out here and playing in Australia.

Both men left the court for bathroom breaks, and Medvedev composed himself just in time to save two more break points in the opening game of the third set. Photograph: Tertius Pickard/AP As Medvedev shook Campistol’s hand, he apologised to the umpire for his outburst and later admitted his actions were wrong. Tsitsipas and Medvedev are very different tennis players as well as people and this was a compelling contest between the aggressive, flashy Greek and the defensive skills of the second seed. The pressure gradually grew on Tsitsipas, though, and his resistance ran out in the 10th game, Medvedev clenching his fist at the decisive breakthrough. “Like, I was not controlling myself anymore about anything, and that’s actually why I’m really happy to win, because many matches like this I would go on just to, you know, to do mistakes, because you lose your concentration a lot when you get in this heat of the moment things.

What’s funny is I’m going to play again against someone going for a 21st title. “It’s funny. I think Novak will be watching this one in two days also. Grand slam finals are special. I know players like to do this stuff to throw you off mentally. I’m ready. What time is the Australian Open final?
