Jannik Sinner ended Novak Djokovic's reign at the Australian Open on Friday, stopping the Serb's record 33-match winning run at Melbourne Park and his bid for a 25th Grand Slam title.

The Italian No. 4 seed was unfazed by dropping his first set of the tournament against the king of Rod Laver Arena, winning 6-1, 6-2, 6-7 (6-8), 6-3 to reach his first Grand Slam final.

"It was a very, tough match," Sinner said. "I started off really well. He missed in the first two sets. I felt like he was not feeling that great on court so I just tried to keep pushing."
