Australian Open: Jannik Sinner wins first Grand Slam after miraculous comeback vs. Daniil Medvedev

Jannik Sinner might have believed he was ready for this moment before. But on Sunday, he was truly ready to ascend to the top of his sport.

Against Daniil Medvedev, one of his main rivals and the ATP No. 3, Sinner came back from a two-set deficit to capture his maiden Grand Slam title 3-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 over a 3-hour, 44-minute match. Sinner, a gangly, 22-year-old redhead from Northern Italy, used every tool in his belt to defeat Medvedev, relying on his elite athleticism to stage a comeback from what looked like almost certain defeat.
