Only one Singles match remains in this year’s Australian Open 2021 schedule, with the Women’s final having ended with a straight-sets victory for No.3 seed Naomi Osaka against Jennifer Brady.
Attention will now turn to the Men’s final – and it looks set to be an incredibly close contested affair between eight times winner Novak Djokovic and rising superstar Daniil Medvedev.
Of the two, it’s the Russian Medvedev who has arguably enjoyed the more comfortable run, dropping only two sets en route to his second Grand Slam final and defeating Stefano Tsitsipas in comfortable style in his semi-final.
World No.1 Djokovic also won his semi-final in straight sets, but he had a couple of scares on his way to that stage – needing five sets to defeat Taylor Fritz in the Third Round while also dropping sets to Frances Tiafoe, Milos Raonic and Alexander Zverev.
He’s never lost an Australian Open final so far – but Medvedev will certainly pose a tricky challenge, and so this is shaping up to be a mouth-watering tie.
