It was Nadal’s sixth Aus Open final and second win. Medvedev fought for the title in Melbourne for the second time in a row and lost again.


It was an incredible finale. Danil Medvedev led 2-0. In the first set, the Russian was much better than the Spaniard, he confidently scored points and won. But the Spaniard Nadal gathered himself after such an account and began to score points.

To say that the Spanish in the third and fourth set was better is not true. The game was equal, it came to time breaks, but the Spaniard was better. He managed to win the 3rd, 4th and 5th set, where he won.

Nadal fired 3 times, made 5 double faults and converted 7 break points out of 22. Medvedev scored 23 aces, 5 double faults and 6 realized break points out of 22.

The match lasted 5 hours and 24 minutes. In the third set, Medvedev led 3-2 and had a triple breakpoint.
