Sinner vs Medvedev preview
Two weeks' hard work all comes down to this: Jannik Sinner vs Daniil Medvedev to be crowned Australian Open 2024 champion for the first time.
Sinner's four-set semi-final defeat of Novak Djokovic was nothing short of extraordinary. The Serb was on a 33-game winning streak at Melbourne Park and just one more from breaking Monica Seles' all-time record for most consecutive victories, yet a combination of the 10-time champion's 54 unforced errors and Sinner's outrageous hitting combined for the upset of the men's tournament. It was the fourth seed's third defeat of Djokovic in their past four meetings and his barnstorming forehand and massive first serve are potent weapons, regardless of opponent. This is the 22-year-old Italian's first grand slam final and the feeling is his game is here to stay.
Medvedev, meanwhile, has made his third final in four years Down Under after coming back from two sets down to beat Alexander Zverev 5-7 3-6 7-6(4) 7-6(5) in another epic. That was the third time the Russian has gone the distance at Melbourne Park in 2024, with his third round defeat of Felix Auger-Aliassime the only straight-sets victory. All those extra miles on court surely have to add up at some point – the only set Sinner has dropped is one tiebreak to Djokovic – but you can't discount the 27-year-old former US Open champion's fierce will to win.
Medvedev holds a 6-3 head-to-head advantage, but Sinner has won each of the last three, including a three-set win at the ATP Tour Finals semi-final late last year. Sinner's form and power tennis make him a slight favorite, despite Medvedev's grand slam final experience.
