Stefanos Tsitsipas said he would not be surprised if Daniil Medvedev beat Novak Djokovic to win the Australian Open title on Sunday and that victory for the Russian would be good for men's tennis. The 'Big Three' of the men's game -- Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Djokovic -- have shared 57 Grand Slam titles between them and Dominic Thiem's U.S. Open triumph last year was the first time anyone outside the triumvirate had won a major since Stan Wawrinka won in New York in 2016. World number four Medvedev had a shot at breaking that stranglehold in the U.S. Open final in 2019 against Nadal but went down in five sets.
