Novak Djokovic will play his 33rd grand slam final against Stefanos Tsitsipas on Sunday, January 29. 

Djokovic beat Tommy Paul at the Australian Open to advance to a 10th Melbourne final, having won the previous nine.

In doing so, the Serbian also edged closer to Chris Evert's leading mark across all singles players.

The Serbian has also played nine title matches at the US Open, eight at Wimbledon and six at the French Open.

Djokovic has now matched Serena Williams' record among both male and female players, with only Evert ahead on 34.

A 22nd success on Sunday would equal Nadal's Grand Slam record.

Djokovic has also joined Federer and Nadal as the only male players in the Open Era to reach 10 or more finals at one major.

Another record under his belt is that he equalled Andre Agassi's record for the most consecutive wins at the Australian Open.
