When is Aus Open men's final between Djokovic vs Medvedev?

Novak Djokovic has reaffirmed his status as the king of Melbourne Park after claiming a record ninth Australian Open title in an emphatic straight-sets victory over Daniil Medvedev 7-6 6-2 6-2.

Amid a chorus of boos, the protestors were lead out of the arena and the match swiftly continued.

And he will meet another Russian in the final in Medvedev - a man who beat him at the ATP Finals past year.

It heralded a golden year where he won three of the four Grand Slam titles.

The Russian, riding a 20-match winning streak into Sunday night's men's final against Novak Djokovic, has struck the ball harder and positioned himself more offensively on court than the Serb on his journey through the draw.

But that's when Djokovic stepped up, and Medvedev stepped back.

But on the court he so proudly declared he had a love affair with during the opening round, Djokovic reminded the world of why he now sits atop the world order as he dismantled perhaps the best hope tennis' new guard have of dislodging the big-three. He never has won a match after dropping the first two sets.

"Physically it was the toughest match I ever played", said an exhausted Nadal, after addressing the crowd with: "Good morning!"

"It's definitely my favourite Grand Slam, my most successful Grand Slam".

"It has been a roller-coaster ride for me, especially in the last couple weeks", Djokovic said, cradling his silver trophy in his left arm.

Djokovic was upset in the 2014 quarter-finals by Wawrinka, the eventual champion, but was back to his punishing best a year later.

'I'm not going to stand here and hand it over to them, Mats, you know that very well.

'I mean, see Rafa, Novak, Roger in the grand slam victories, so spice it up a little bit, change the name list.

He has won six of the last 10 major tournaments overall and his total of 18 Slams moves him within two of the men's record of 20 shared by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

"I wouldn't really say I watch Medvedev, like all his matches throughout".

Daniil Medvedev also lost his first career Grand Slam final at the U.S. Open.

"There are a lot of mixed feelings about what has happened in the last month or so with tennis players coming to Australia", Djokovic said.

Medvedev is trying to collect his first Grand Slam title.

Djokovic captured his eighth title and earned his 900th tour-level match win on the way.

However, Osaka was hoping that Stefanos Tsitsipas would be taking on Djokovic, but he was dumped out in the semi-finals.

Djokovic eventually fought back from two sets to one down to secure his 17th major 6-4, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. "I love you each year, more and more". I'm going to make them work their ass off for it!'

Djokovic looked on his way out when he could barely run because of an abdominal injury in the third round against Taylor Fritz, but somehow survived in five sets.

The world No 1 put on his most convincing display against qualifier Aslan Karatsev in the semi-finals.

Another Russian awaited in the championship decider, but world number four Daniil Medvedev went the way of the Serb's eight previous final opponents as it took a rampant Djokovic just 1hr 53 min to win 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 and extend his flawless record in finals at Melbourne Park.
