Sinner sets up final against Medvedev as Djokovic’s bid for 25th Major is thwarted

Novak Djokovic lost at the Australian Open for the first time since 2018 as Italian fourth seed Jannik Sinner reached his first Grand Slam final.

Serbia’s Djokovic, 36, lost 6-1 6-2 6-7 (6-8) 6-3 as Sinner regrouped from not taking a match point in the tie-break.

It ends Djokovic’s bid for a record-extending 11th title and a 25th major to put him clear of Margaret Court.

Sinner, 22, faces Daniil Medvedev, who recovered from two sets down to beat Alexander Zverev, in Sunday’s final.

Russian third seed Medvedev, 27, won 5-7 3-6 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 in a remarkable second semi-final which lasted four hours 18 minutes and finished at 00:06 local time.

Sinner’s elimination of Djokovic means there will be a new name on the Australian Open men’s singles trophy.

Australian Open Betting

Medvedev has the greater experience, however, Sinner is clearly a man in form and will, in theory, go into the final fresher, after spending considerably less time on court this tournament than Medvedev. In our preview we cited him as the man to watch and a decent each-way bet after monitoring his form over the last year. His record against Djokovic is impressive and he came through once again.  At the time of writing, bet365 have Sinner priced at 4/11 and Medvedev at 9/4.
