Free tips Australian Open 2021 Final Predictions: Daniil Medvedev Can Create History & Defeat Novak Djokovic at Australian Open
Top seed and defending champion Novak Djokovic will be seeking a ninth Australian Open title against the Russian fourth seed Daniil Medvedev on Sunday. Here’s a look at both finals with the best Australian Open final odds and some predictions…
Australian Open Final Predictions:
Men’s Final: Winner – Daniil Medvedev 1/1 @ William Hill
Women’s Final: Set Betting – Naomi Osaka to Win 2-1 @ 10/3 with BetVictor
Men’s Final – Djokovic v Medvedev
As anticipated, Djokovic saw off qualifier and world number 114 Aslan Karatsev in his semi-final. The Russian put up a spirited fight, but Djokovic came through in straight sets – 6-3 6-4 6-2.
The 33-year old Serb has a 100% record in finals in Melbourne, so it-s a daunting task facing the 25-year old Russian, who will be contesting just his second Grand Slam final.
Reasons for Optimism
There are plenty of reasons for optimism for Medvedev though. He came through his semi-final against Greek fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas (conqueror of Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals) with a straight sets 6-4 6-2 7-5 win, to secure his 20th consecutive victory.
He showed he has the temperament for the big occasion when taking Nadal to five sets in his previous Grand Slam final at the US Open in 2019.
He also closed out 2020 by winning the ATP Finals, where he became the first player to have defeated the world’s top three players (including Djokovic of course) in any ATP Finals competition. Medvedev now has 12 straight victories over Top 10 opponents and has won three of his past four meetings against Djokovic.
The long-awaited change in the order at the top of the men’s game is finally starting to happen and this might just be the tournament where one of the established legends of the game finally succumbs to one of the younger generation.
