Down-the-line.ru will broadcast a live online text broadcast: Tennis. Australian Open. The final. Tsitsipas – Djokovic. Direct
Djokovic is one win away from Rafael Nadal’s record 22 Grand Slams in the Open Era.
Over the past few months, the Serbian has shown top-notch tennis with 30 wins in 32 matches and titles at the Tel Aviv Open, Astana Open, Turin ATP Finals and International from Adelaide 1. He marked his return to the Australian Open with a fitting victory over Roberto Carbales Baena and continued to display his dominant form in the following rounds.
Djokovic beat Enzo Cuoco, Grigor Dimitrov, Alex De Minor, Andrei Rublev and Tommy Paul en route to his tenth Major final in Melbourne.
Stefanos Tsitsipas, on the other hand, has also started the new 2023 season well. The Greek was undefeated in his last 11 matches and qualified for the Australian Open after the semi-finals of the Rolex Paris Masters and the United Cup 2023.
He sailed through the first three rounds with ease and then showed his best qualities to defeat Yannick Sinner, Jiri Legechka and Karen Khachanov en route to the final. Tsitsipas defeated Russian Khachanov in four sets 7-6(2), 6-4, 6-7(6), 6-3 and reached his first final in Melbourne.
Djokovic leads in personal encounters with Tsitsipas 10-2. Most recently, he beat the Greek in the 2022 Nitto ATP Finals 6-4, 7-6(4).
