STATS TO KNOW

1 — Sinner wins his first Grand Slam title in his first major final.

4 — Medvedev is the first finalist to play four five-set matches in a Grand Slam tournament.

1,020,763 — a record total crowd for the Australian Open main draw. The extra day helped. The previous record for a 14-day tournament was 839,192 last year.

WORDS TO KNOW

“Yes, I like to dance in the pressure storm. I like it, because that’s where most of the time I bring out my best tennis." — Sinner.

“It’s very, very tough when you have a mentality, I don’t want to say champion, but a good mentality, a sport mentality, it’s very tough to lose in the final. It kind of hurts more. But you have to try to find positives — and the positive is, well, the final is better than the semifinal and quarters.” — Medvedev.
