For the second time in his career, Karen Khachanov will play in the GST semifinals and the first in Melbourne. Last year Karen reached the semifinals of the U.S. Open but lost in four sets to the Norwegian Casper Ruud. Now for the second round, his opponent is Tsitsipas, who never lost in 2023. Khachanov has learned how to prepare well for the Majors, a skill Daniil Medvedev should know as he failed another tournament. Karen got five wins in Melbourne, knocking out Zapata Miralles, Tiafoe, Nishioka, and Korda. Note that the match against Korda was not finished. Sebastian withdrew due to injury, with 0-3 in favor of Karen. But by that time, Khachanov had already led 2-0 in sets. Karen made 12 aces with zero double faults and won 80% of points on the first serve and 52% on the second. Reception statistics were 39%/52%, winners/unforced errors - 27/18. If he reaches the AO-2023 final, Khachanov will overtake Daniil Medvedev in the rankings and become the second racquet in Russia first time in a long time.
The most challenging match for Tsitsipas at AO-2023 was against Sinner in the last 16. That match lasted more than four hours and five sets. His other matches on AO-2023 were three sets, except Sinner. Stefanos knocked out Halys, Hijikata, Griekspoor, and Lehecka. We thought that Jiri would put up a fight, but we were wrong. He couldn't even take a set; the only tie-break was in the second game. That said, before, the AO Tsitsipas was not even in the top three favorites, but now he is a likely finalist. At least Stefanos is the lantern for the upcoming game. That said, before the start of AO, Tsitsipas was not even in the top three favorites, but now the Greek is a likely finalist. For Tsitsipas, the upcoming match will be the fourth AO semifinal in his career, but the Greek has not played in the finals yet.
Expert Betting Tips
Khachanov is a comfortable opponent for Tsitsipas. However, Karen showed an excellent performance in Melbourne. He wants to take revenge on the Greek for the recent failures, beat him for the first time on the hard court, and reach the final. The match will not be fleeting. Khachanov is strong on the first serve and has excellent chances at least to win the set and perhaps the whole game. At AO-2023, there were enough sensations. We will not be surprised if we witness one of them.
