The 2024 Australian Open comes to a close this weekend when No. 4 Jannik Sinner and No. 3 Daniil Medvedev face off in the finals. In a shocking twist to world No. 1 and defending champion Novak Djokovic’s 33-game winning run in Melbourne — and his quest to add an 11th Australian Open win to his record — Sinner defeated Djokovic 6-1 6-2 6-7 6-4. After the loss, Djokovic called the match “one of the worst Grand Slam matches [he’s] ever played.” Last night marked the first time Djokovic has ever lost in an Australian Open semifinal or final.
Headed into his first grand slam final, Sinner will now have to face the twice-over Australian Open runner-up Medvedev. Are you ready to watch the Australian Open final?
