US Open 2023: Daniil Medvedev upsets Carlos Alcaraz, will face Novak Djokovic in finals

The favorite to win the U.S. Open, and the tournament’s defending champ, is going home early.

Carlos Alcaraz, the top-seeded 20-year-old fresh off a Wimbledon title and winner of last year’s big event in Queens, lost to No. 3 Daniil Medvedev 7-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.

The win was redemption for the Russian, who lost to Alcaraz in the Wimbledon semifinals back in July.

It took Medvedez four match points to get the job done in the fourth set as Alcaraz did all he could to hold on just a bit longer.

Djokovic’s match on Friday marked his 47th semifinal appearance in a Grand Slam, a new all-time record.

Sunday marks Medvedev’s fifth Grand Slam final, and Djokovic’s 37th.
