A new men's champion will be crowned at Melbourne Park on Sunday night as two-time Australian Open runner-up Daniil Medvedev and first-time finalist Jannik Sinner square off for the right to be the last man standing. And, for the first time in a decade, the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup is assured to be won by a player outside of the Big Three in tennis.
Novak Djokovic's remarkable streak came to an end on Friday when the defending champion suffered his first loss at Melbourne Park in 2195 days. This incredible run encompassed 33 consecutive victories, leading to four consecutive titles. Here's how to watch the Australia Open Men's Singles Final.
New Champion to be Crowned
Affectionately known as "The Octopus," Medvedev has impressively spent a total of 20 hours and 33 minutes on the court across six rounds to secure his place in the Australian Open final for the third time.
Medvedev's sole straight-sets progression came in the third round against Felix Auger-Aliassime. Notably, half of his matches in the tournament have extended to the full distance – including a quarterfinal clash against Hubert Hurkacz, as well as notable comebacks from two-set deficits against Emil Ruusuvuori in the second round and Alexander Zverev in the semifinals.
Despite winning fewer points against the ninth-seed Hurkacz and the sixth-seed Zverev, Medvedev showed resilience and found a way to secure victories in those matches.
Sinner, in contrast, has experienced a much smoother journey to his first Grand Slam final. Demonstrating remarkable efficiency, the 22-year-old spent five hours and 49 minutes less on the court than his opponent. Notably, he did not drop a set until the semifinals.
Sinner comfortably handled seeds Sebastian Baez, Karen Khachanov, and Andrey Rublev without much difficulty before achieving the most significant victory of his career over the 10-time champion Novak Djokovic.
