First set: Rublev *0-1 Djokovic (*indicates next server) Djokovic, his left thigh firmly fixed once again, serves to hold the big fires first. Rublev poses some threat in the second round, especially with a brutal forehand winner down the court.
Here they are! Both players took to the court and Djokovic received a standing ovation. Many Serbian flags fly in the stands of the Rod Laver Arena. It’s currently 26 degrees in Melbourne with a light breeze.
Page Page: Djokovic leads Rublev 2-1 in their previous three meetings, having beaten Rublev twice in the ATP Finals on hard courts, but the Russian may be looking forward to victory in the Belgrade final. last year.

The winner will meet here today Tommy Paul In the semi-finals, the American won the battle with Ben Shelton 7-6 (8-6), 6-3, 5-7, 6-4. The 25-year-old reached the fourth round at Wimbledon last year, but this was her best performance at a Grand Slam.
Andrei Rublev is one spot below Novak Djokovic, but that undercuts the scale of his task today. The Russian went 0-6 in the Grand Slam quarterfinals, losing five of those matches in straight sets. He still has a full game to go, but it will be difficult to overcome that hurdle today against a man chasing history.
Djokovic is one win away from matching Andre Agassi’s 26-match winning streak in Melbourne and is the favorite to win his 10th Australian Open this week. He’s taken some time to get his teeth into shape this year, with an early hamstring injury holding him back, but after brutally dispatching Alex De Minaur, he’s definitely the man to beat.
