Top seed Novak Djokovic will face in-form Italian Jannik Sinner in the semifinal of the 2024 Australian Open. The match will be played on Friday, January 26, 2024. Here's our Novak Djokovic vs Jannik Sinner prediction.

Novak Djokovic 

Novak Djokovic is through to his 11th Australian Open semifinal after a commanding win over USA's top-ranked ATP player, Taylor Fritz. The first two sets of that quarterfinal were very competitive, with Djokovic setting an unwanted record of his own by going 0/15 on break point conversion. But he was able to wear down the American whose world-class serving deteriorated spontaneously before Djokovic prevailed 7-6, 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. After an Australian Open campaign that began with questions regarding his general fitness level, Djokovic provided the answers during the tournament, and he remains the man to beat.

Jannik Sinner

Jannik Sinner is the only player in the men's draw who has not relinquished a set during the fortnight and managed to reach his maiden Australian Open semifinal with a masterful performance over his first highest-seeded opponent in the quarterfinal. Sinner rallied from 1-5 down in the second-set tie-break and eventually prevailed in straight sets over Russia's Andrey Rublev. Now, he must take on the ultimate test at these championships, but having won the last showdown against Djokovic, he'll fancy his chances on Friday.

Novak Djokovic vs Jannik Sinner prediction

Novak Djokovic leads the head-to-head 3-2. At Grand Slam level, the Serb is 2-0, beating Sinner in back-to-back Wimbledon in 2022 and 2023. But the Italian has certainly improved within a short amount of time to convince many observers that he is the man to wrestle Djokovic's crown at the Australian Open. Form favors Sinner, who has won every singles match he has contested since losing to Djokovic in the finals of the ATP Finals in Turin last November and even avenging that loss at the Davis Cup just a week later. But Djokovic's unstained record in the Australian Open semifinals reads:played 10 and won 10. While past history doesn't necessarily guarantee future success, the 36-year-old has never looked fitter after an inauspicious start to 2024. Back Sinner to push the Serb all the way, but the final outcome firmly rests with Djokovic.
