The South Tyrolean somewhat surprisingly prevailed against the Serbian world number one on Friday in Melbourne with 6:1,6:2 6:7(6),6:3. For Djokovic, who has won the Australian Open ten times, it was the first semi-final defeat in his favorite tournament ever.

Sinner dominated the game at will for two sets in the Rod Laver Arena. Djokovic made many mistakes and never found his rhythm. It was only in the third round that the 24-time Grand Slam tournament winner improved and fended off a match point before securing the set in the tiebreak. But Sinner stayed cool and pulled away again in the fourth set.
