For 25-year-old Medvedev, this is the end of a 20-match winning streak that started in November 2020. This included a straight sets win over Djokovic himself at the ATP Finals in London. This was his second Grand Slam final, having lost to Nadal at the 2019 US Open final. Djokovic was on the money from the start, breaking Medvedev in his opening service game. He then consolidated the break for a 3-0 lead before Medvedev fought back.

The world No. 4 called himself an underdog in the final against Djokovic. “I’m the challenger, the guy that challenges the guy who was eight times in the final and won eight times. And I’m happy about it. I like to play against Novak. We have, since the first one when I was ranked 60, we had always tough matches physically, mentally. And he’s one of the greatest tennis players in the history of tennis. So playing a final against him is superb. I’m really happy about it. Let’s see what happens on Sunday.”

Djokovic had said in a recent broadcast interview that the young challengers, who look to take over from him, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, including Medvedev have a “lot of work to do” to catch up with the big three of men’s tennis. “They will be the leaders of the future, but I’m not going to hand it over to them,” world No.1 had said. “I’m going to make them work their ass off for it.”

    Djokovic vs Medvedev Live Score Australian Open Final LIVE: Djokovic dominating Medvedev at Melbourne Park. The Russian is well and truly unsettled. He has lost his concentration completely. Novak is not trying to dictate terms and has managed to do that with aplomb. The top seed is going along with Medvedev’s chaos and beating him at it, leaving the Russian even more frazzled. From 15-30 down in his own serve, Medvedev makes it 40-30. But Djokovic doesn’t let the game go at all, he fight back to make it deuce. Then, owing to his opponent’s lack of rhythm, he breaks early in the third set. Djokovic 2-0 Medvedev | 3rd Set
