The 2024 Australian Open men’s final is won by Jannik Sinner over Daniil Medvedev in Melbourne.

Jannik Sinner finally won the Grand Slam medal he had been promising for a long time by beating Daniil Medvedev to the Australian Open finale.

Sinner, 22, from Italy, was down two sets, but he came back to win the first major of his career final 3-6 3-6 6-4 6-4 6-3.

The fourth seed At first, Sinner couldn’t keep up with the Russian’s speed, but as the race went on, he forced himself to.

The last time Medvedev lost, he lost by two sets to Rafael Nadal in the 2022 final. This time, it hurt even more.

Before Sin thumped his upper body on his way to celebrate with his team, Medvedev walked around the net to say cheers.

After beating Novak Djokovic, who had won 10 times, in the semi-finals, Sinner was sure to win the Melbourne title for the first time.

After a brave comeback within a match that lasted almost four hours, Sinner made sure his name would be on the trophy, proving the talent that many people thought would eventually result in a Grand Slam win.

“I feel great. He told Channel Nine in Australia, “I guess I just have to process it and see how it feels the first time.” “It has been one hell for a journey even though I’m still only 22.”

Medvedev, the third seed and 27-year-old, has lost five out of his six major finals. He lost to Djokovic in 2021 or Nadal in 2022 at Melbourne Park.

Winner: Sinner with a forehand down the line. He was so happy that he fell to the ground on the baseline.

Medvedev looked sad as he tried to deal with his loss while sitting in his chair. When the crowd praised his work, he managed to give them a thumbs up.

Medvedev said, “It hurts to lose in the final, but I think being in the final is better than losing before.” He set a record for the longest time spent on the court in a Grand Slam tournament, 24 hours and 17 minutes.

After a shocking end to last season, Sinner was at the top of the list when people talked about who would win the Grand Slam in 2024.

People thought he would do even better this season after winning the ATP 1000 title in Toronto, beating some of the best players, and leading Italy to victory in the Davis Cup.

In the first big tournament of the year, Sinner was able to do just that. Sinner has been more sure that this might have his chance over the past two weeks and didn’t lose a set until he played Djokovic.

It had been asked for a long time why younger players couldn’t beat Djokovic in Melbourne, and the Italian answered that question by beating him.

After achieving that, Sinner had to follow up a memorable win with another one against Medvedev. Sinner had said that he knew beating Djokovic wasn’t the end of the job.

He showed how strong his mind was by refusing to believe he was defeated, even though he was in a very dangerous situation, and kept believing in his strong groundstrokes.

Medvedev was getting tired, so Sinner sped up and got more accuracy with his serves. In the last two sets, he hit 28 winners.

Many Italians were cheering for Sinner at Rod Laver Arena. “The match was going quickly in the first two sets,” Sinner said.

“There was no way I was going to play during this level, but I was searching for small chances.” He was broken, and I went on to win set after set, game after game.

The only major title Medvedev had won was at the US Open in 2021. He hoped that his more experience in these kinds of situations would help him beat Sinner.

Many players who have been to a Grand Slam final are talking about how different and possibly overwhelming it can be, especially if it’s your first time.

Sinner didn’t seem to be nervous, but Medvedev used an aggressive style of play to suffocate him in the first two sets, which turned out to be a good move.

He finally turned things around because he was able to keep going, and maybe he still had mental scars from losing to Nadal in the same stage.

During the two weeks in Melbourne, Medvedev spent approximately six hours more on the court than his younger opponent.

Three times, he had to beat his opponents in five sets, and twice, he had to come back from being down two sets, including an amazing match in the semi-finals against Alexander Zverev, the sixth seed from Germany.
