Jannik Sinner wins Australian Open

Jannik Sinner defeated Daniil Medvedev in the Australian Open final, overcoming a two-set deficit. The fourth-seeded player, who had lost only one set, had a two-set advantage. However, the Italian found his foot midway through the match and won the match in a battle of will and endurance. This marks Sinner's first career major title and Medvedev's unwanted record. The match also marked the first time in Grand Slam history that a player lost multiple finals after winning the first two sets. The 22-year-old started nervously but managed to stay positive and stick to his game plan.

"I was in a little bit of trouble today at two sets to one down in a little over an hour," Sinner said. "So I just tried to stay positive, trying to stick to the game plan, which I had to adjust a little bit. Daniil is an incredible player and showed also again he is an incredible fighter."

Futher, He said, "I just tried to stay as long in the court as possible, knowing that he has spent so many hours on the court. The more the match goes on, maybe physically I'm a little bit better today, because he played so many hours. I think that today that was the key."

Following his breakthrough win, Sinner will retain his world No. 4 ranking, while Medvedev will hold the No. 3 slot, with a gap opening between the current top four and fifth-ranked Andrey Rublev.
