Tsitsipas vs Khachanov: match preview

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Karen Khachanov each have their own demons to exorcise as they meet in the first men's semi-final of the Australian Open. The Greek No.3 seed has never progressed beyond this stage in three previous attempts, while No.18 seed Khachanov is developing something of a complex with Tsitsipas. He's played him five times and lost them all.

Tsitsipas has always been a popular figure in Melbourne, and he's further endeared himself to the crowds over the past week and a half. His masterful use of the local colloquialisms has probably helped, but it's the seat-of-his pants brand of tennis that's done most of the heavy lifting. The 24-year-old has faced 49 break points in Melbourne and saved 43 of them. It's the escape act that keeps giving, and having seen him fall to Nadal and Medvedev in three of the past four years, fans would love to see him finally book his place in the title match.

Khachanov needs to either learn from or completely forget his history with the Greek star, and pick up exactly where he left off. The huge-serving 26-year-old has dished out two of the most brutal beatdowns of the tournament: the 6-0 6-0 7-6 pummelling of Yoshihito Nishioka, and the subsequent destruction of Sebastian Korda's spirit. The American retired with the scoreboard reading 7-6 6-3 3-0, and while Khachanov may have appreciated the chance to put his feet up, he perhaps didn’t get the plaudits he deserved.
