It comes down to Jannik Sinner and Daniil Medvedev, the two players who will vie to lift the 2024 Australian Open on Sunday, January 28, 2024. Here's our Jannik Sinner vs Daniil Medvedev prediction.

Jannik Sinner

Jannik Sinner became the youngest Australian Open men's finalist in 16 years after defeating defending champion Novak Djokovic in the semifinal. Sinner dropped his first set at these championships, but he inflicted Djokovic's first defeat in a semifinal match at the Australian Open after the Serb had gone 10-0 in his last ten semifinal matches at Melbourne Park. One of the most staggering statistics after the match was that Sinner did not face a single break point on serve. Considering Djokovic's status as the world's greatest returner, this shows the incredible level that Sinner is currently operating at. He will contest his first Grand Slam final on Sunday, and while the oddsmakers have instilled him as the favorite, tennis has a funny way of deviating from the script.

Daniil Medvedev

Simply put, the Iron Man of the 2024 Australian Open. That is Daniil Medvedev. He has flirted with elimination on two occasions, coming from two sets to love down in his second-round match against Emil Ruusuvuori and then Alexander Zverv in that high-octane semifinal to pull through. Medvedev has once again loved every minute of players engaging him in long, tedious, and unproductive exchanges, despite Zverev's best efforts to try and outsmart him tactically. This is the Russian's sixth Grand Slam final, and unless he can add a second major title, Medvedev is probably the best one-time Grand Slam champion in history.

Jannik Sinner vs Daniil Medvedev prediction

Daniil Medvedev leads Jannik Sinner 6-3 in their head-to-head, but do not be fooled by that number. They played five times in 2023, which is over half of their career meetings. And Sinner won three of those matches last season. Having struggled to solve this puzzle early on in his career, the Italian has now taken control of this rivalry, beating Medvedev in two ATP 500 finals at the back end of last season. Although they have met nine times, Sunday's clash will be their first at Grand Slam level, and it will be in a final. Nerves could play a part here despite the formbook favoring Sinner immeasurably. Medvedev has been in this position before and might be the player who could potentially settle quickly. But Sinner has a multi-slam-winning coach in his team in Darren Cahill, and his mental strength has improved within the short time they have been together. He could have easily buckled after squandering a match point against Djokovic in the semis and needing to play an extra set. So, with all these factors considered, plus his recent purple match against Medvedev, he gets our backing to win this match outright.
