Medvedev’s streak at 20; faces Djokovic in Australian final
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Daniil Medvedev has reached his second Grand Slam final by beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets at the Australian Open. Medvedev will face eight-time champion Novak Djokovic at Melbourne Park on Sunday. The fourth-seeded Medvedev played nearly perfect defensive tennis at the baseline and helped himself with 17 aces and 46 total winners in the semifinal. The fifth-seeded Tsitsipas looked drained after his epic five-set, four-hour comeback victory over Rafael Nadal in the previous round. Djokovic will be appearing in his 28th major final and seeking an 18th Grand Slam title. Medvedev was the runner-up at the 2019 U.S. Open.
