Felix Auger-Aliassime was one point away from a win over world No. 2 Daniil Medvedev and a spot in the Australian Open semifinals.

But the young Canadian couldn't finish the match off, and the Russian veteran made the most of his reprieve.

One hour and 14 minutes later, Medvedev had come back from a two-sets-to-none deficit at a Grand Slam tournament for only the second time in his career and stunned Auger-Aliassime 6-7 (4), 3-6, 7-6 (2), 7-5, 6-4.

"You step on the court, you want to have no regrets," Auger-Aliassime said after the four hour, 42-minute quarter-final marathon that ended early Thursday morning in Melbourne. "I can go back and think I wish I'd made different choices or wish Daniil didn't play as well in certain moments. But, yeah, it was a good effort.

"At the end of the day, I can't regret the effort that I put in, and the chances I gave myself."
