Announcements of the Australian Open 2022 semifinals
Even before he hit his first ball at this year’s Australian Open, Rafael Nadal knew he had an open door to create the record for most Grand Slam singles titles.
So far he has not closed it.
Nadal plays Matteo Berettini in a semifinal at Melbourne Park on Friday, knowing he would win two matches from the 21st big title. He equaled the 20th record with Roger Federer recovering from right knee surgery and Novak Djokovic, who was deported from Australia ahead of the match following an 11-day visa saga not to be vaccinated against Govt disease. -19.
In another semifinal, Daniel Medvedev will play Stefanos Tsitsipas in the rematch of their 2021 Australian Open semifinals. Medvedev won the semifinals last year and then lost to Djokovic in the final.
After Nadal had a tough five-set victory over Denis Shapovalov on Tuesday, he relieved some pressure from the 21st Major.
