Jannik Sinner knocksout Novak Djokovic from the Australian Open


Jannik Sinner gave the world of tennis one of the biggest upsets in Melbourne at the ongoing Australian Open by defeating Novak Djokovic.

The world number one was tipped as the favourite to reach the final of the competition for the 12th time, a feat that has never been achieved by any player in the history of the sport.

It was not a good day in the office for Djokovic as he lost the first two sets 6-1 6-2 6-7 (6-8) 6-3. He took the third set before Sinner wrapped up the game by winning the fourth set. This defeat ends Djokovic's bid for a record 11th title, it also means there will be a new name on the trophy.

The 36-year-old had won 33 matches in a row in Melbourne since losing to Chung Hyeon in the fourth round six years ago. Sinner will face Russian third seed Daniil Medvedev or German sixth seed Alexander Zverev on Sunday, January 28, 2024.
