Korda of US stops 2-time Australian Open runner-up Medvedev

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Sebastian Korda has eliminated two-time runner-up Daniil Medvedev 7-6 (7), 6-3, 7-6 (4) in the Australian Open’s third round. It is the latest in a string of victories by young American men against top players at Melbourne Park. Korda is the son of 1998 Australian Open champion Petr. He equaled his best showing at any Grand Slam tournament by reaching the round of 16. The No. 7-seeded Medvedev won the U.S. Open two years ago and made it to the final in Australia in 2021 and 2022. Jessica Pegula, Iga Swiatek and Coco Gauff are all breezing through the Australian Open’s women’s bracket so far.
