A first-time Australian Open men’s champion will be crowned today as Jannik Sinner faces off against Daniil Medvedev.
For Sinner, today will be his first-ever major final. The 22-year-old Italian stunned crowds on Friday when he upset world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in a 6-1 6-2 6-7 6-3 victory. That match put an end to Djokovic’s 32-match, five-championship winning streak at the Australian Open. Medvedev, on the other hand, will be playing his third final at Melbourne Park. The Russian — ranked No. 3 in the world — made it to this year’s final with a comeback win against No. 6 Alexander Zverev.
