Djokovic vs Tsitsipas live stream: match preview

Novak Djokovic loves Australia – or, at least, he did before being banned from the country last year over Covid-19 protocols. The Serb is in his 10th final in Melbourne and has never lost any of his previous showpiece appearances Down Under. Djokovic has still only lost one set over the past near-fortnight and dispatched Tommy Paul in the semi-final 7-5, 6-1, 6-2, after overcoming a slight first-set wobble having been pegged back from a 5-1 lead.

Stefanos Tsitsipas has been knocking on the door of the elite for some time without anyone inside ever letting him in. Still only 24, the Greek has been on the radar since winning the ATP Finals in 2019 but Grand Slam silverware still eludes him. Tsitsipas came close at the French Open in 2021, only to let a two-set lead slip against Djokovic, but in beating Daniil Medvedev en route to the final proved he has the all-court game to compete with the best. Fond of the extended bathroom break to disrupt his opponent's rhythm, Tsitsipas may have to employ every trick in the book if he's to overcome the mentally toughest player in tennis history.

This will be the 13th meeting between the players, with Djokovic winning 10 of their previous encounters, including their most recent match at the ATP Finals in Turin last November. Tsitsipas' last win over Djokovic came at the 2019 Shanghai Masters.
