Novak Djokovic beats Daniil Medvedev for an astonishing ninth Australian Open title on Sunday.
The men’s final at Melbourne Park saw a stunning opening set from both men, but the Serb world No. 1 was able to put his foot down and raced to a 7-5 6-2 6-2 win in less than two hours.
The World No. 1 won 89 percent of net points (16/18).
For top-seeded Novak Djokovic, 33, this is his 18th Grand Slam singles title two behind Federer and Nadal.
Djokovic is now just the second man in history to win at least 9 titles at any Grand Slam event.
“On the court, Daniil is one of the toughest players I have ever faced in my life. It’s only a matter of time before you hold a Grand Slam trophy,” said Djokovic speaking after winning the championship.
“If you can wait a few more years, I’d appreciate it. It’s amazing that he has put together a 20-match winning streak over the past few months.
