2020 Australian Open – Men's Singles

Novak Djokovic was the defending champion[1] and successfully defended his title, defeating Dominic Thiem in the final, 6–4, 4–6, 2–6, 6–3, 6–4.[2] In winning his eighth Australian Open and 17th Grand Slam singles title, Djokovic also regained the ATP no. 1 singles ranking from Rafael Nadal. Thiem became the first Austrian player, male or female, to reach an Australian Open singles final. This was Thiem's third Grand Slam singles final loss in as many attempts. The match also marked the first time Djokovic came back to win in a Grand Slam final after trailing two sets to one, having lost each of the last seven times this had happened.[3]
