Two women and two men remain in the Australian Open singles competitions. First up is the women's final on Saturday between No. 5 Aryna Sabalenka and No.22 Elena Rybakina. Expect a slugfest between these two heavy hitters. Sabalenka is seeking her first major championship, while Rybakina is going for her second major title after winning Wimbledon last year.
On Sunday, No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas will face No. 4 Novak Djokovic. Winner of a record nine Aussie Open titles, Djokovic has never lost an Aussie Open final or semifinal match. Tsitsipas is playing in his second Grand Slam final. In his first, he lost in the 2021 French Open to Djokovic after being up two sets to none.
Tennis fans in the US will need to stay up late or get up early to watch the matches live. I recommend a disco nap or setting your DVR. Both matches will be shown live on ESPN. Here's what you need to know to watch the tennis finals without cable.
