The 2024 Australian Open semifinal is set to be an exciting match as Daniil Medvedev takes on Alexander Zverev. Medvedev is the favorite going into the match for a number of reasons. He is ranked higher in the ATP Rankings and has been more impressive at the Australian Open, having reached the tournament final twice in his career. However, Zverev has been a giant slayer, defeating the former No. 2 AO24 favorite Carlos Alcaraz in the quarterfinals.

In terms of the odds, Medvedev is favored with a moneyline of -147, while Zverev has odds of +127. The match is set to take place at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia on Thursday, January 25, 2023, at around 8:00 p.m. ET. It can be watched on fubo.

Medvedev is dreaming of winning the Australian Open title, having come close on two previous occasions. In 2021, he was defeated by Novak Djokovic in the final, and in 2022, he was defeated by Rafael Nadal after initially winning the first two sets. In 2024, Medvedev is determined to make a strong showing, despite a grueling match against Hubert Hurkacz in the previous round.

Zverev, on the other hand, is coming off a strong performance, having defeated Cameron Norrie and then upsetting Carlos Alcaraz in the quarterfinals. However, he has a poor record against Medvedev, having won just one of their last seven matches.

Despite the odds favoring Medvedev, there is a belief that Zverev might be a better bet, given his recent form and confidence. The prediction for the match is that Zverev will put up a strong fight, making Zverev +1.5 sets look like a fantastic bet, with the pick being Alexander Zverev +1.5 (-110).
