Weâ€™re sorry, this service is currently unavailable. Please try again later.
Semi-final 2: Stefanos Tsitsipas v Daniil Medvedev, Rod Laver Arena, not before 7.30pm AEDT with the winner to play Rafael Nadal in the final on Sunday.
The video replays of Medvedev arguing with the umpire are getting plenty of interest on social media.
It appears, instead of calling the umpire a pussy for not penalising Tsitsipasâ€™ father for what Medvedev believes is coaching from the box, he has called the umpire a â€˜small catâ€™.
It seems like pretty good creative abuse in a second language from Medvedev.
Medvedev leads 1-0 in the third set.
Tsitsipas had to go through a couple of deuces but he held serve and claimed the second set 6-4.
We are now tied up one set each with an hour and 25 minutes gone. This could be going the distance.
Tsitsipas has broken back and done so on a surprise double-fault from Medvedev.
The Russian was so angry he committed a code violation for an obscenity which was announced by the umpire as he walked to his bench.
Tsitsipas is serving to make it one set each.
UPDATED: Ever since Tsitsipas broke his serve in the opening game of the set, Medvedev has been probing and producing his opponent looking for the break and he earned one last game as Tsitsipas couldnâ€™t find enough winners against Medvedevâ€™s quality returns.
Itâ€™s now 7-6, 4-3 to Medvedev with Tsitsipas to serve next.
Tsitsipas leads 2-1 in the second set and will serve for 3-1 after the break.
But Medvedev just won that last service game to love, it was a clear statement to the Greek star that he doesnâ€™t plan on giving up any more breaks this set or this match.
There was a huge roar for Tsitsipas as he breaks Medvedevâ€™s serve in the opening game of the second set.
Only his most committed fans would have seen that break coming, Medvedev has been imperious with his serve so far tonight.
Now can Tsitsipas hold this break for the rest of the set? He leads 1-0.
Medvedev has won the first set in a tiebreaker 7-6 [7-5].
Tsitsipas took the early 4-1 lead in the tiebreaker after serves dominated the opening set but then Medvedev put his foot down and refused to let his opponent have any winners as he claimed the set.
There is very little in this match but Medvedev has the all-important first set.
Medvedev has been super dominant on his serve but in the second point of the tiebreaker he was finally beaten by the Greek star.
But Medvedev fought back to win the next point on serve and Tsitsipas did the same with his two serves to lead 4-1.
The signs were there from the early games, this first set is going to a tiebreaker with Tsitsipas serving first.
