US Open: When and where to watch?
The US Open semifinal between Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev will begin at 4:30AM IST on Saturday and will be telecast live on  Sony Sports network while the live streaming will be available on Sony Liv.

World No. 1 Alcaraz enters the semifinal crash after a 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 victory over 12th-seeded German and former finalist Alexander Zverev. The 20-year-old Spaniard, who played with his left thigh heavily taped, seemed to be struggling with his forehand throughout the match but managed to convert the break point opportunities he had.

Alcaraz has dropped only one set in his five matches so far which happened against Daniel Evans in the third round.

On the other hand, third seed Medvedev comes into the final-four fixture after beating fellow Russian Andrey Rublev in straight sets in gruelling conditions, which he later termed “dangerous” in his press conference.

While the faster courts at Flushing Meadows do suit Medvedev’s playing style, he might have to change his strategy of staying way behind the baseline against Alcaraz as that did not work at all in Indian Wells and Wimbledon earlier this year.


Played: 3 | Medvedev: 1 | Alcaraz: 2

Alcaraz leads the head-to-head record against Medvedev. The Russian won their first meeting 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 in the second round of Wimbledon two years ago. However, since then, Alcaraz has dominated him in their last two matches. The Spaniard won 6-3, 6-2 in this year’s Indian Wells final before emerging victorious 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 in the Wimbledon semifinals.
