Melbourne/UNI: Daniil Medvedev of Russia cruised into the Australian Open men's singles final after defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece here at the Rod Laver Arena on Friday.

The second seed Medvedev outplayed the fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 in a match that lasted two-and-a-half hours to make his fourth major final appearance.

The Russian will meet the 20-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal of Spain in the final on Jan 30.

The summit clash will be the fifth career meeting between Medvedev and Nadal, with the Spaniard leading their head-to-head record 3-1.

The duo had earlier met during the 2019 US Open final, which Nadal won in five sets.
