Djokovic and Sinner attend their meeting in the Australian final

Anticipated semi-final that challenges the Serbian's historic path

Zverev and Medvedev look for the other ticket


The Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic is looking for his eleventh final at the Australian Open this Friday to continue adding to his record and his dominance in the ATP Circuit and in the history of tennis, although he will face Jannik Sinner who has been able to defeat him. face recently.

On the day of the draw for the first 'big' of the season the news was that the Italian was going for the Serbian. The expected final was that of Djokovic with the Spanish Carlos Alcaraz, but the Murcian was knocked out against the German Alexander Zverev, who will play the other semifinal against the Russian Daniil Medvedev.

The penultimate round on the high side of the draw did fulfill the predictions and 'Nole' will once again have the test of a Sinner who left a 2023 of tennis maturity. The Italian won four titles and, in the final stretch of the season, beat the Serbian twice: in the group stage of the ATP Finals and in the Davis Cup.

The one from Belgrade kept the title of Master, but in the Tennis World Cup the one from San Candido got even. Few tennis players have been able to stop Djokovic who swept last year, reaching 24 'Grand Slams' and that every time he appears in this penultimate round in Melbourne he ends up lifting the title.

The world number one has not lost a match at the Aus Open for six years, in search of his eleventh title at the Rod Laver Arena and to continue making history alone. Sinner has not lost a set in these two weeks and is aiming for his first 'major' final.

At 4:30 peninsular time it will be the turn of the Serbian and the Italian and, then, Medvedev and Zverev will experience the 19th chapter of a great rivalry, although the first in five sets. Medvedev dominates the record 11-7, with a 5-1 in 2023, although it was the return after injury of a Zverev who is now once again a fearsome player.
