Daniil Medvedev is history’s gatekeeper once more, with Rafael Nadal three sets away from the title that will make him statistically the most successful male player of all time. The Spaniard has the upper hand in their head-to-head, but does he still have the stamina to cope with the towering Russian’s power? Here’s how to watch a Nadal vs Medvedev live stream wherever you are – including ways to see the Australian Open final absolutely FREE.
The role of pantomime villain is second nature to Med, who’s been given a rough ride by the Melbourne crowd over the past two weeks. The 25-year-old’s outburst on Friday made for compelling viewing, but he displayed his growing maturity by holding his nerve and pushing Stefanos Tsitsipas aside.
Few expected Nadal to be the one to break the 20-slam deadlock he shares with Djokovic and Federer, especially after his very recent return from a knee injury – and even fewer thought it could happen on Djok’s turf – but his dismantling of Matteo Berrettini was a reminder of the 35-year-old’s enduring class.
Medvedev and Rafa have met four times before, Nadal winning thrice, but the big man is improving all the time, and he’s got unfinished business to attend to.
Somewhere on the other side of the world, Novak Djokovic will have his eyes glued to a screen. Will you? Watch all the drama unfold by following a Nadal vs Medvedev live stream at the final of the Australian Open 2022.
