Melbourne (and maybe the tournament) was said to belong to the 20-year-old Greek force of nature, Stefanos Tsitsipas, after he put 37-year-old Federer out of the tournament the previous day, and Daniil Medvedev, a mere 22, would, according to many good judges, give 31-year-old Djokovic plenty to think about in the fourth round.
