The Serbian fourth seed overcame an early scare to romp past unseeded American Tommy Paul 7-5, 6-1, 6-2 on Rod Laver Arena in style on Friday, January 27.



Another title on Sunday will move him alongside Rafael Nadal with 22 Slam wins and see the 35-year-old return to world number one for the first time since last June.


Greek third seed Tsitsipas, who ground past Russian 18th seed Karen Khachanov 7-6 (7/2), 6-4, 6-7 (6/8), 6-3 in the other semi-final, can also become the top-ranked player should he lift the trophy.

At 24, Tsitsipas is the youngest man to reach the Melbourne final since 23-year-old Djokovic in 2011.


“I dreamed as a kid to maybe one day get to play in this court against the best players in the world,” said Tsitsipas, who is also unbeaten this season with a 10-0 record.



“I’m extremely happy that I’m in the final now and let’s see what happens.”
