Australian Open: Jannik Sinner wins his 1st Grand Slam men’s singles title
Jannik Sinner defeats Daniil Medvedev in Men’s Singles final to wins his 1st grand slam title
Italy’s Jannik Sinner defeated Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in a hard-fought game 3-6, 3-6, 6-4,6-4,6-3 in the men’s singles final of the Australian Open in Melbourne on Sunday.
The 22-year-old fourth seed rallied from two sets down to register a convincing win against Medvedev and lift his maiden major trophy at the Australian Open.
With his win, Sinner became the first Italian man to win a Slam since Adriano Panatta in 1976. The World No. 4, who lost just one set en route to the final, ended Novak Djokovic’s 33-match winning streak at the Australian Open in the semi-final.
Sinner is just the second player to rally from two sets down in the Australian Open final and lift the trophy. The other was Rafael Nadal, who defeated Medvedev from a two-sets-to-love deficit in 2022.
