Quarterfinal match between Alexander Zverev and Stanislas Wawrinka being played on Rod Laver Arena at the 2020 Australian Open.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic defeated Dominic Thiem in the final, 6–4, 4–6, 2–6, 6–3, 6–4 to win the men's singles title at the 2020 Australian Open.[1] It was his record-extending eighth Australian Open title and 17th major singles title overall. With the win, Djokovic also regained the world No. 1 singles ranking. Thiem became the first Austrian player to reach an Australian Open singles final. This was Thiem's third major singles final loss in as many attempts. The match also marked the first time Djokovic came back to win in a major final after trailing two sets to one, having lost each of the last seven times this happened.[2]

This was the final Australian Open appearance for former six-time champion Roger Federer. With his third-round win, Federer became the first player to win 100 matches at the Australian Open.[3] He also became the first player to have at least 100 wins at two majors (the other being Wimbledon).
