While Zverev has been sensational in his outings at Melbourne Park, Medvedev has struggled to impose himself. However, as the two face off at Rod Laver Arena, it is difficult to look past Megamind. While Zverev is 1-5 in the slam semi-finals, Medvedev has reached the Australian Open final twice. Moreover, the Russian ace has a 11-7 record against Zverev and will surely look to improve this statistic in their first-ever slam meeting.
