Daniil Medvedev on a 20-match winning streak, during which he has won 11 matches against top-10 players (including Novak in the ATP Finals). Can he make it one more in the AO final on Sunday?

Novak proves too good for Medvedev in the final for his 9th Australian open title and 18th slam title.

Rafa and Roger with 20 titles now, Novak with 18.who will Ed up with highest?

My guess is Novak. Federer is likely done. Nadal may have one more FO but chances are that Novak will win 4 or more from here on out.

Given their ages, Novak.

Recency bias suggests Novak! Surely the next generation -- Thiem, Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Zverev, Kyrgios -- will make the breakthrough soon. Novak was clinical yesterday, and Medvedev frankly had no real excuses (like tough previous matches) to explain away his decimation. But one of the young lot needs to have a great run, find an easier draw in a Slam, and make it all the way. Once the spell of the Big Three is broken (i.e., with one of the next generation beating one of the Big Three in a Slam final), I think the next lot will begin coming into their own. The psychological lock of the Big Three wasn't opened by a Thiem-Zverev Slam final.
