Daniil Medvedev challenges Novak Djokovic in the final of the Australian Open

 The  danger for Novak Djokovic comes from Russia. If anyone manages to keep the Serbian eight-time winner of the Australian Open from his ninth coup, it will probably be Daniil Medvedev. Even the «Djoker», who has never lost a Melbourne final, knows that: «Intelligence is his strongest weapon», he says respectfully before today’s final (9.30 am, SRF 2). Medvedev, who plays chess excellently and also studied mathematics and physics, is known for his unpredictable, technically unconventional game. And that’s exactly what an opponent needs to crack Djokovic, who is usually playful and mentally impressive in the most important matches.

“Experience is the key,” says the Russian intelligentsia after playing Stefanos Tsitsipas fadengrad in three sentences. Well, the 25-year-old’s key word speaks primarily for the 17-time major champion, who will replace Roger Federer as the longest world number 1 in history the week after next. Medvedev also means his own backpack, which he filled with a Grand Slam final at the US Open (loss to Rafael Nadal), three successes in four duels with Djokovic and a winning streak of 20 matches in a row.
