‘Head Held High’: Felix-Auger Aliassime Looks at The Bright Side of Australian Open 2022 Quarter-Final Loss Against Daniil Medvedev

By January 26, 2022No Comments

The Australian Open quarter-final between Daniil Medvedev and Felix Auger-Aliassime was one to behold. In an epic five-setter bout between two top 10 players in the world, the top-seeded Medvedev won the uphill battle.

The 21-year-old Canadian surely had the Russian backed into a corner, as he won the first two sets. Nevertheless, Medvedev never lost hope and won the final three sets to secure his place in the semi-final.

All said and done, young Felix Auger-Aliassime chalked up the match as a learning experience. Moreover, he is proud of what he achieved in the Rod Laver Arena today.

Young Felix has learned a lot from his battle against Daniil Medvedev

Felix Auger-Aliassime certainly has his regrets about his loss to Daniil Medvedev. After all, he had the title favorite on the backfoot with two sets secured.

Of course, he does wish that he had walked away victorious, and he expressed as much. “I wish I could go back and change it but I can’t,” Aliassime shared.

However, the young star is choosing to look at this experience optimistically. “I look at it in a very positive way,” Felix said. In that vein, the World No. 9 is “going to leave Australia with (his) head held high.”

Furthermore, this quarter-final tussle against the best player in the tournament inspires him for the rest of the season, too. Thus, Aliassime is “gonna go into the rest of the season knowing (he) can play well against the best players in the world.”

Certainly, Aliassime is capable of going toe-to-toe with the very best, as he definitely had the world believing that this was the last they were seeing of Daniil Medvedev at the Australian Open 2022.

Medvedev will now cross paths with Stefanos Tsitsipas

Moving into the semi-final of the Australian Open 2022, Daniil Medvedev will now face Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Greek World No. 4 put his quarter-finalist opponent Jannik Sinner away in straight sets.https://twitter.com/usopen/status/1486330529771360265

As they will cross paths now for the ninth time, Medvedev has a 75 percent win rate against the Greek. They have played against each other eight times, and Medvedev has been victorious in six of those battles.

The last time the two crossed paths was in the quarter-final of the French Open 2021, where Tsitsipas put away the Russian in straight sets. Who do you think will proceed to the final?
