MELBOURNE, Australia– Novak Djokovic’s Australian Open dominance is unchanged nine finals, 9 championship.
As well as he keeps gaining on Roger Federer and also Rafael Nadal in the Grand Slam standings, currently approximately 18 total, two away from the males’s record shared by his two opponents.
Djokovic have used superb serving as well as his usual unrelenting returning and standard quality to get 11 of 13 games in one stretch as well as defeat a visibly disappointed Daniil Medvedev 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 on Sunday for a 3 rd prize in a row at Melbourne Park.
The 33-year-old from Serbia improved to 18-0 combined in semifinals as well as finals on the hard courts of the Australian Open.
“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 was a much different challenge.
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 his palms facing upwards, apparently looking for guidance.
The maths looks good for Djokovic. 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.”Source
