Carlos Alcarz vs Daniil Medvedev

World No. 1 Alcaraz reached the semi-finals by defeating Alexander Zverev in the men's singles quarterfinals on Thursday. Defending champion Alcaraz will square off against World No. 3 Daniil Medvedev in the semifinals of the US Open 2023.

Alcaraz leads Medvedev 2-1 in the head-to-head. The Spaniard won their most recent encounter at the 2023 Wimbledon in straight sets. Alcaraz and Medvedev have faced off twice this season, with the former winning in straight sets on both occasions. On the first occasion, the Spaniard snapped the Russian's 19 match winning streak in the final of the Indian Wells Masters. More recently, Alcaraz defeated Medvedev in the semifinals of Wimbledon en route to winning the title. The two of them have captured the title in New York over the last couple of years. This match could be more competitive than their previous meetings, but the outcome is likely to be the same, with Alcaraz coming out on top.

Novak Djokovic vs Ben Shelton

Meanwhile, Serbia's Novak Djokovic registered a one-sided victory over American player Taylor Fritz in the quarter-finals and made it to the US Open 2023 semi-finals. He won the match 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 and took his record against Fritz to 8-0 in the ATP head-to-head series. Moreover, the Serbian surpassed Roger Federer's 46 to set a men's record of 47 Grand Slam semi-finals appearances in the Open Era. Djokovic will play the US Open 2023 semifinal against Ben Shelton, who created history at Flushing Meadows by defeating his countryman Frances Tiafoe in quarter-final. Shelton became the youngest American to reach the US Open 2023 semi-finals since Michael Chang in 1992. He needs just one more win to reach her first Grand Slam final.

Djokovic has a 30-0 record against Americans since his loss to Sam Querrey in the third round of Wimbledon in 2016. This will be the first time Djokovic and Shelton will face each other. Shelton has a big serve but the youngster will need much more than that to trouble Djokovic, one of the best returners in the sport.
