World Number Two Russian Daniil Medvedev has booked a titillating Australian Open final with Rafa Nadal, who is hunting for a historic 21st Grand Slam title.
Medvedev, the U.S. Open champion dismissed Greek Star and World Number seven, Stefanos Tsitispas in four sets on Friday, winning 7-6 6-4 4-6 6-1.
Hopes that Tsitsipas would stage a comeback fizzled out in the fourth set as Medvedev broke him twice to seal a second successive spot in the final.
- Rafa Nadal one win away from 21st record Grand Slam title

- Nadal outlasts Shapovalov, now two wins away from record 21st Grand slam
Only Rafa Nadal now stands as an obstacle to his dream of winning in Australia.
