Daniil Medvedev had the enviable record of defeating Novak Djokovic in three out of their last four matches before the Australian Open final, but after Sunday‘s thrashing the Russian was left wondering if his best would have made any difference. Medvedev walked on to the floodlit Rod Laver Arena for his second major final, having won the Paris Masters, the ATP Finals and the team-based ATP Cup in a 20-match winning streak that included 12 straight wins over top-10 opponents. But his unbeaten run and the past record counted for nothing as Djokovic tutored him on his “living room”, showing him how he has managed to remain unscathed in nine Australian Open finals with a 7-5 6-2 6-2 victory.
