For the first time in the history of tennis, an Italian beats the favorite and flies into the final scheduled for Sunday 28 January, where Sinner will meet the winner of the other semi-final between the Russian Zverev and the German Medvedev.
The Australian Open is one of the four most important tennis tournaments, a goal never achieved by an Italian tennis player before Sinner who beat, in four sets, Djokovic, holder of the title he won for the tenth time since last year.
The favorite defeated by Sinner
This is Djokovic's first defeat in the semifinals, and he hadn't lost a match at the Australian Open since 2018.
In the last matches played against Sinner he won only once out of three and, until then the Italian, at just 22 years old, had been the only one in the tournament not to lose a single set.
Sinner, despite his young age, in the last year he has proven to be one of the most promising tennis players in the world.
This rapid climb towards the Olympus of the greats has made Italy proud to be the homeland of a very young boy who will show us more good things.
