Carlos Alcaraz will be looking to continue his efforts to defend his US Open title when he takes on Daniil Medvedev in the semi-finals this week.
The defending champion has had a remarkable 2023 since winning his first Grand Slam at last year’s tournament at Flushing Meadows.
The Spaniard reached the last four of Roland-Garros before winning his first title at Wimbledon this summer.
Alcaraz are just two wins away from successfully defending the US Open after defeating Alexander Zverev in straight sets.
The world number one is the youngest player since Novak Djokovic in 2007 in the Open Era to reach three semi-finals in a year.
And he’ll likely have to face rival Djokovic in the final if he manages to do so, with the Serb taking on home favorite Ben Shelton on the other side of the table.
But Alcaraz must first overtake third-seeded Medvedev, who beat fellow Russian Andrey Rublev 6-4 6-3 6-4 to reach the last four.

Alcaraz vs. Medvedev: what was said?
Medvedev issued a chilling warning on camera in his win over Rublev, saying players could die from the extreme heat.
Speaking after the match, Medvedev said: “This and the Tokyo Olympics (it was the worst conditions ever), it was brutal.
“The only good thing I see in these conditions is that both suffer. It’s hard for both of us.
“There have been ups and downs but it’s so normal. At the end of the third set, I could no longer see the ball. I kind of played with the sensations.
“It looked like he couldn’t run anymore, but he kept coming back. Super hard to win.
“I feel really comfortable playing on this court, in New York,” said Alcaraz.
“I feel good physically. I feel pretty strong mentally.
“I think I will really play a great battle against Medvedev in the semi-finals.”
