Novak Djokovic wins his 22nd Grand Slam championship in Australia.

For the tenth time, Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open on January 29. The Serbian tennis player overcame Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece (6-3, 7-6, 7-6) and matched Rafael Nadal of Spain as the male players with the most Grand Slam victories, each having 22 triumphs.


Tsitsipas, who was trying to win his first Grand Slam match, was comfortably defeated by Djokovic. At Roland Garros in 2021, he had already lost against the Serbian. The 24-year-old struggled to find his rhythm in the early games as Djokovic used his expertise and relentless focus from the start of the match.


Tsitsipas's serve in the opening set was not as impressive as Djokovic's. Tsitsipas played 60% of first in terms of first's efficacy, compared to 72% for Belgrade. In the second set, Tsitsipas upped his performance and made it 2-3 in his favour, which he then wildly celebrated. However, as is his tendency, Djokovic upped the effort just in time to save a set point and win the tiebreaker game 7-4.


It was also close on the third round. Until the tiebreaker game, Tsitsipas remained unfazed and at the same level. But at this time, he made inexcusable errors that led to an amazing 4-0 run, which caused him to lose the game 5-7 and hand Djokovic another triumph. Tsitsipas demonstrated his superior level of tennis skill with ferocious shots that made the audience happy to watch the level of play. Despite this, his defence was unable to match up to Djokovic's concentration, creativity, and brilliance.


Due to his lack of a Covid-19 vaccination from last year, Novak Djokovic was forced to watch Rafael Nadal win after being kicked out of Australia prior to the tournament's start. He didn't get immunised, and as a result, he missed a total of six important competitions.
