Novak Djokovic makes history, winning the Australian Open for the tenth time
The best tennis player in the world Novak Djokovic won the 10th trophy at Australian Open after defeating the Greek in the final Stefanos Tsitsipas with 3:0 in sets (6:3, 7:6, 7:6). The match lasted two hours and 53 minutes.
The Serbian tennis player started the match with a lot of energy and ease of movement, allowed the Greek only two games, and made fewer unforced errors than Tsitsipas.
He ruled a break in the fourth game, so Djokovic gained a significant advantage in the rest of the match. Unlike the first, the second set was much more exciting.
Although the short exchanges continued, Tsitsipas this time did not allow a single break to Djokovic, who was visibly nervous.
At one point, Nole got into a small verbal conflict with his coach Goran Ivanisevic, after which he played a little better, saved a set point from Tsitsipas and took the match to a tie-break.
And there, break for break, even seven, four in favor of Djokovic who managed to win the second set with a lot of drama.
The third started with one break on both sides, the Serbian in the exchange of blows patiently waited for the right moment to attack, but Tsitsipas did not give in, so we saw another tie-break in which Novak again showed his mental strength and relatively easily gained an advantage over Tsitsipas .
The Greek then saved three match points, but could not save the fourth, so Djokovic won the tie-break with 7:5.
The best Serbian tennis player has won the Australian Open a record 10 times, that is, he has never been defeated at the "Rod Laver" arena in a title match.
With this triumph, Djokovic won the 22nd Grand Slam title in his career, equaling his great rival Rafael Nadal. Along with the victory over Tsitsipas, he regained the first place on the ATP list after overtaking Carlos Alcaraz.
