Daniil Medvedev blasts his way into the Australian Open final

Daniil Medvedev blasts his way into the Australian Open final

Russian tennis star Daniil Medvedev has another opportunity to land a first Grand Slam title after beating Stefanos Tsitsipas to reach the Australian Open final.

The in-form Russian won 6-4 6-2 7-5 against Greek fifth seed Tsitsipas, to secure his 20th victory in a row, Yahoo reported.

Fourth seed Medvedev, 25, will contest his second major final when he meets Novak Djokovic on Sunday (08:30 GMT).

After losing in the 2019 U.S. Open final, Medvedev aims again to become Russia's first male major champion since 2005. In his way stands top seed Djokovic, who is bidding for a record-extending ninth men's title at Melbourne Park.

Medvedev has won three of their past four meetings but facing the 33-year-old Serb in an Australian Open final - in which he has a 100% winning record - should be a different proposition.
