In a stunning turn of events at the Australian Open, tennis star Novak Djokovic’s bid for an 11th title in Melbourne and a 25th Grand Slam came to an abrupt end as he suffered a four-set defeat at the hands of 22-year-old Italian sensation Jannik Sinner.

This marked the first time Djokovic lost a semi-final at the Australian Open, breaking his flawless record in the last four of the tournament.

The 36-year-old Serbian astonishingly won only three games in the first two sets, and despite saving a match point in a third-set tie-break, he couldn’t overcome Sinner’s determined play.

Expressing his happiness and gratitude, Sinner shared, “I was looking forward to this match. It’s always nice to have this kind of player where you can learn from.”

He referenced a previous loss in the Wimbledon semis, emphasizing the learning process in his tennis journey.

When asked about his strategy against Djokovic, Sinner kept it cryptic, stating, “I don’t know – ask him!” He hinted at playing similar styles but remained tight-lipped about specific tactics.

With a sense of anticipation, Sinner concluded, “I have the feeling I might play him hopefully a couple of different matches.”

As Djokovic exits the Australian Open, Jannik Sinner’s historic achievement has set the stage for an intriguing final and established him as a rising force in the world of tennis.
