Livescore Sunday, May 19

There will be a new Australian Open men’s champion on Sunday night as Jannik Sinner takes on Daniil Medvedev at Rod Laver Arena.

Italian fourth seed Sinner will go in favourite after vanquishing 10-time Melbourne Park winner Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals.

Medvedev, seeded third, is into his third Australian Open final having been beaten by Djokovic (2021) and Rafael Nadal (2022).

Despite having a losing 3-6 record against Medvedev, Sinner has won the last three matches between the duo through 2023.

Will the talented Sinner get his first Grand Slam title? Or can Medvedev win another major to go along with his 2021 US Open?

Handicap lean: Sinner -4.5 games ($1.80)
Set prediction: Sinner in 4 sets

Sinner has been in exceptional form at the Australian Open.

He has only dropped one set so far – against 10-time champion Novak Djokovic in a tiebreak – and it is his performance against the Serbian that has placed him firmly as the favourite for the final. 

If he can replicate that showing on Sunday night, he will likely secure his maiden Grand Slam title.

Despite this, it is still a little surprising to see Medvedev as a fairly comfortable bookmakers’ underdog. 

The Russian has considerably more experience than his opponent, competing in five Grand Slam finals.

It is a concern, though, that he has lost four of those deciders.

Another major challenge will be competing physically with Sinner – the Italian has spent less than 15 hours on court this tournament, while Medvedev has played for over 20 hours.

If the match goes the distance, can he keep up with a fresh Sinner?

Or can a wily Medvedev hold his nerve and defeat a young gun in his Grand Slam final debut?
