08:30 - Time for the second semi!

It's almost time for the second Australian Open men's singles semi final between Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas. These two players are well-matched and so this has the potential to be one of the matches of the tournament.
Tsitsipas, of course, knocked out Rafael Nadal in the quarter finals while Medevdev was solid in his victory over fellow Russian Andrey Rublev. Who do you fancy to win this one?

'Both phenomenal players' - Henman on Tsitsipas v Medvedev

Eurosport analyst Tim Henman has Medvedev as the favourite to make the final but, the former world number four added that it would be folly to write Tsitsipas off, though.
“The match could be called a glimpse into the future, but that's not necessarily true because they've already arrived; they're both phenomenal players,” began Henman.
Medvedev is probably the favourite - his level of tennis over the last three or four months has been phenomenal. He won the World Tour Finals and he has hit the ground running at the ATP Cup. He is in fantastic form.
"Tsitsipas had an unbelievable win against Rafel Nadal in the quarter-finals coming back from two sets to love down," added Henman.
"I wonder whether physically and emotionally he's going to be able to back that up, but we should be very careful about writing off Tsitsipas."
