The first of Friday’s semi-finals saw an almighty upset as Sinner ended Djokovic’s 33-game winning streak at the Australian Open. The Italian was simply sensational as he blew away the 24-time Grand Slam champion, producing a well-rounded display and a huge amount of composure as he secured a 6-1, 6-2, 6-7, 6-3 victory. 

Sinner had never been beyond the fourth round in Melbourne but since the end of last season has emerged as one of the most dangerous players on tour and has now beaten Djokovic three times in the last three months. The 22-year-old has always been a huge hitter but has cut down on errors and is now one victory away from becoming the first Italian, male or female, to lift the Australian Open title. 

While it is Sinner’s first-ever appearance in a major final, Medvedev is no stranger to the big occasion. He won his first Slam at Flushing Meadows three years ago and has twice challenged for the title in Australia, losing to Djokovic in 2021 and then to Rafa Nadal in 2022. 

Can Sinner win his first Grand Slam title? Or will Medvedev make his experience in big matches count and win a second major? Follow our guide as we explain how you can watch a Sinner vs Medvedev live stream and watch Australian Open 2024 games from wherever you are today.
