Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal beat Daniil Medvedev in five sets in an epic Australian Open final at Melbourne Park to win a record 21st Grand Slam.

The two players went blow-for-blow in front of an awestruck crowd on Rod Laver Arena before the Spaniard prevailed by three sets to two (2-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 7-5).

It also marked the first time Nadal has ever come from two sets down in the final to win one of tennis’s big four events.

The match finished past 1am local time and was the second-longest Grand Slam final in history.

Nadal now goes beyond fellow greats Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic to take the outright lead in Grand Slam titles.
