Djokovic won the record for the ninth time, saw the Australian Open, career and the world that no one can take his match
Serbia’s star player has again told the world of Jit that there are no more booklets to match him, Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open for the record ninth time at the London Laver Arena on Sunday and the world has seen no one . Can do In the title match, the world number one player won the 18th Grand Slam after defeating Russia’s Daniel Medvedev 7-5, 6-2 and 6-2 and won the trophy nine times since the last 13 years. And every time people have told that no one can take Djokovic.
Looking at the bigger picture, Djokovic has won six of the last 10 major tournaments and is assured of remaining at No. 1 in the rankings at least through March 8. That will give him 311 weeks in the top spot, breaking a mark held by Federer.
Why has Novak Djokovic been disqualified?
The No. 4-ranked Medvedev was appearing in his second Grand Slam final — he was the runner-up to Nadal at the 2019 U.S. Open — but is still left trying collect his first such championship. Djokovic ended the 25-year-old Russian’s 20-match winning streak. Medvedev also had won his previous 12 matches against Top 10 opponents. But going up against Djokovic in Australia is a much different challenge. Who won the 2009 Australian Open men’s final?
By the second set, as things slipped away, Medvedev bounced his white racket off the blue court, then absolutely destroyed it with a full-on spike. By the third, he kept looking up at his coach with palms up as if to ask, “What can I possibly do here?” It is a familiar sentiment in this stadium, on this court, at this tournament. Federer, Nadal, Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka, Dominic Thiem — all Grand Slam champions, all defeated by Djokovic in semifinals or finals in Melbourne. So place the nine triumphs in Australia alongside five at Wimbledon, three at the U.S. Open and one at the French Open for Djokovic. The math looks good for Djokovic. How many times has Djokovic won the Australian Open? He is about a year younger than Nadal and 6 1/2 younger than Federer, who turns 40 in August. Federer hasn’t competed in more than a year after having two knee operations but is expected to turn to the tour next month.
