ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) — Novak Djokovic has beaten Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 6-4 to advance to the Adelaide International final despite sustaining a leg injury during the match. In the seventh game of the first set, Djokovic caught his left foot when sliding for a ball and immediately began stretching out his hamstring. He took a medical timeout. Djokovic said: “Thankfully, it was nothing too serious,. Hopefully, tomorrow it will be all fine.” The Serbian player will take on Sebastian Korda in Sunday’s final.
