It was a historic day for tennis fans around the world as 21-year old Stefanos Tsitsipas became the first Greek man to ever reach a Grand Slam final. After defeating Daniil Medvedev 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), 7-5 in Melbourne, he will now face off against Novak Djokovic in Sunday’s men’s singles final.


The match began with high intensity as both players looked eager to win the match. However, it was Tsitsipas who made history by taking a 4-1 lead and never looking back. Medvedev was able to mount some resistance in the second set, but it wasn’t enough as Tsitsipas took the tiebreak 7-4. The third set saw more of the same with Tsitsipas winning three consecutive games to take an early lead and never relinquishing it. With his victory, Tsitsipas becomes just the fourth player under 23 years old to reach a Grand Slam final in the past decade.

Tsitsipas heads into Sunday’s title match with plenty of confidence after beating Djokovic twice last year at ATP Masters events. Despite his success against Djokovic in 2020, Tsitsipas still has his work cut out for him as he is up against one of the greatest players of all time who is also looking for an 18th major title. With so much on the line for both players, we can expect a close matchup that could go either way come Sunday night at Rod Laver Arena.


Stefanos Tsitsipas has made history by becoming the first Greek man to reach a Grand Slam Final and will now have the opportunity to become just the fourth player under 23 years old in this decade to win one when he faces off against Novak Djokovic on Sunday night at Rod Laver Arena. Even though Djokovic is considered one of tennis' all time greats and is seeking his 18th major title, Tsitsipas will have confidence heading into this matchup after beating Djokovic twice last year at ATP Masters events. This should be an exciting match that tennis fans won't want to miss!
