Australian Open: Alcaraz-Zverev headlines Wednesday

In the afternoon, the other men's semi-final will pit world No.3, Russian Daniil Medvedev, double finalist of the event in 2021 and 2022, against Pole Hubert Hurkacz (9th), a novice at this level. Australian Open and who, at 26, has only reached the semi-finals of a Grand Slam once, at Wimbledon in 2021. In the women's draw, the Belarusian Dayana Yastremska, 93rd in the world, from qualifying, will have the honor of opening the day in the Rod Laver Arena, where all the matches of the day will take place, against the Czech Linda Noskova (50th).
