Daniil Medvedev winning the Australian Open would be ‘good for tennis,’ says defeated semi-finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The Russian absolutely outclassed Tsitsipas to cruise into his second Grand Slam final in Melbourne on Friday, where he will face world number one Novak Djokovic.

Tsitsipas was some way short of the height he reached in overcome a two set deficit against Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals, but he thinks Medvedev can win the title on Sunday.

“I can see Daniil Medvedev winning the tournament,” Tsitsipas told the press.

“On the other hand, two years ago when Rafa beat me, I was sure that he was going to win.

“Again, could be Medvedev, it would be good for tennis.

“Everyone saw what just happened. He put up a show, he became Daniil Medvedev for three sets.

Tsitsipas produced an amazing comeback against Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinal, but he believes he was never likely to reproduce that again so soon.

“It didn’t really matter,” Tsitsipas said of his brief third set rally.

“I don’t think I would have had the energy to last, it was all in the first two sets.”
