Daniil Medvedev vs. Alexander Zverev 2024 Australian Open Odds, Time, and Prediction

Daniil Medvedev vs. Alexander Zverev is a semifinal match of the 2024 Australian Open, which is on the program on Friday morning (Eastern Time)

Daniil Medvedev is the betting favorite in the 2024 Australian Open semifinal for several reasons. First of all, he’s ranked higher in the ATP Rankings. He’s also been more impressive than Alexander Zverev at the Australian Open, reaching the tournament Final twice in his career.

However, Zverev has turned into a real giant slayer, even beating the former No. 2 AO24 favorite Carlos Alcaraz in the quarterfinal.

Daniil Medvedev Dreaming of the AO Title

Only five different players have won the Australian Open in the last 20 years. Only two of those are still active (Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal). However, Daniil Medvedev did come very close to winning this tournament on two occasions.

He reached his first AO Final in 2021, but Djokovic stopped him, winning the match 3-0. The following year, he reached the Final again. This time around, his opponent was Rafael Nadal. Although Medvedev started the match in top gear, winning the first two sets, Nadal bounced back and won 3-2.

Fast-forward to 2024, and Medvedev is dreaming of the title again. He hasn’t been too impressive so far, if we’re going to be honest. In his most recent match, he beat Hubert Hurkacz 3-2 after four hours on the court. It was a hard match, but his next opponent had an even harder journey.

Can Alexander Zverev Upset the Odds Again?

In Round of 16, Alexander Zverev beat Cameron Norrie 3-2 after spending more than four hours on the court. After this exhausting match, Zverev was expected to get steamrolled by Carlos Alcaraz. However, the opposite happened.

In the quarterfinal of the 2024 Australian Open, Zverev beat the ATP No.2 in just over three hours, with the final score being 3-1 in sets. The only set he dropped was the third set, which Alcaraz won after a tiebreaker.

All this has probably boosted Zverev’s confidence, but there’s one thing that needs to worry him. He doesn’t have a very good record against Medvedev, winning just one of their last seven matches (since 2021).

Daniil Medvedev vs. Alexander Zverev Prediction

The 2024 Australian Open odds favor Daniil Medvedev to win, but we think Alexander Zverev might be a better bet. This guy’s been in top form, which isn’t the case with Medvedev. The fact that he beat Alcaraz in the previous round means that he will play with more confidence on Friday.

Even if he doesn’t win the AO24 semifinal, we are confident he’s going to give Medvedev a real war on the court. This is why Zverev +1.5 sets looks like a fantastic bet.

Pick: Alexander Zverev +1.5 (-110)
