The battle for the 2023 Australian Open title heats up as the men's semifinals are set to be contested on Friday.
Novak Djokovic is the man to beat at the moment as he continues to make his way through the draw with ease. He hardly broke a sweat during his quarterfinal victory over Andrey Rublev. The Serb is now just a couple of wins away from a 10th title in Melbourne.
First-time Grand Slam semifinalist Tommy Paul stands between Djokovic and yet another final Down Under. The young American will be angling for an upset here, but getting past the 35-year-old is no easy task.
Stefanos Tsitsipas has reached the semifinals here for the third straight year and for the fourth time in his career. He's currently on a nine-match winning streak and, given his form, is on track to make the final as well. The Greek is up against Karen Khachanov, who's competing in his first semifinal at the Australian Open.
This has been an exciting tournament so far and with the final just around the corner, the level of play will only go higher. Here's a look at the schedule for the men's semifinals at the 2023 Australian Open:
