Novak Djokovic vs Jannik Sinner Live Stream: Australian Open 2024 results and semi-final results before Daniil Medvedev vs Alexander Zverev

Novak Djokovic blows a kiss to Nick Kyrgios after winning the point over Fritz

Novak Djokovic's Australian Open title defense ended after a stunning four-set defeat to Jannik Sinner in the semi-finals. Djokovic has not lost at the Australian Open since 2018 and won 33 consecutive matches in Melbourne but Sinner advanced to his first Grand Slam final with an impressive 6-1, 6-2, 6-7, 6-3 win over the 10th-seeded all-time champion.

Djokovic was seeking to win his 25th Grand Slam title this week, but in Sinner, the 36-year-old faced a player who had beaten him in two of their previous three meetings at the end of last season. The 22-year-old Italian dominated the opening exchanges to defeat an out-of-form Djokovic in two one-sided sets.

The third set was closer, and Djokovic threatened to come back after saving a match point to decide the tiebreak. But Sinner responded to force Djokovic into an uncharacteristic performance, as the Serbian broke a 40-0 lead midway through the fourth set. Sinner's excellent serve stayed strong down the stretch to secure a historic victory.

In the other semi-final match, the rivalry between Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev is renewed, as they meet in one of the four major tournaments for the first time. Zverev produced an impressive performance to defeat Carlos Alcaraz while Medvedev needed another five-set epic to get the better of Hubert Hurkacz. Zverev has faced off-court scrutiny in connection with his upcoming domestic violence trial – he denies the accusations – and is bidding to reach his first Australian Open final.

Australian Open Live: Novak Djokovic vs Jannik Sinner

This record is now finished. In a stunning upset, 22-year-old Sinner claimed the biggest win of his burgeoning career to reach his first Grand Slam final. Given Sinner's form at the Australian Open and his recent record against Djokovic, where he has won two of their previous three meetings, the Italian was leaning closer to the 36-year-old. But Sinner pulled off the unthinkable: first a crushing victory and then an absolutely dominant 6-1, 6-2, 6-7, 6-4 victory that handed Djokovic his first Australian Open defeat since 2018 – 2,195 days ago.

Sinner will face Daniil Medvedev or Alexander Zverev for his first Grand Slam title on Sunday, but Djokovic's entire year has evaporated in the wreckage he left behind. The world number one was aiming to win his 25th Grand Slam title in Melbourne and will have more chances to claim that record, but the chance to make one last “Grand Slam” assault of all the Grand Slams and the Olympics in one match for the year is already over. With Sinner now firmly elevating himself above his peers alongside Carlos Alcaraz as a worthy contender for the biggest honors, Djokovic will know that the challenge of staying at the top is tougher than ever.

Sinner ahead of his first Grand Slam final, where he will face either Daniil Medvedev or Alexander Zverev:

“I don't really know what to say. The confidence I've gained since the end of last year has kept the belief in my ability to play with the best players in the world. I'll go into Sunday smiling and do my best.”

“I will definitely watch the other semi-final. They are great players and I am a tennis fan! I hope it will be a great match and we will see what happens on Sunday.”

Set and match game! Sinner 6-1 6-2 6-7 6-3 Djokovic

“It was a very tough match. I started well for two sets and I felt like he wasn't feeling well on the court so I kept pushing. Then in the third set I had a match point and missed a forehand, but that's tennis. I tried to prepare for the next set. I was looking forward to it. On to this match: It's good to have these kind of players you can learn from. I learned a lot from Wimbledon (where Sinner lost to Djokovic in straight sets in the semi-finals).

Sinner was asked how he has now beaten Djokovic in three of the last four matches:

“I don't know – ask him! I think we play similarly. He's an amazing serve player but I tried to push him and move him all over the court, and I'm not going to tell you the tactics. I have a feeling I'll play a few more matches with him. It's a pleasure to be here.”
