Djokovic wins Australian Open
Serbian tennis legend Novak Djokovic claimed a historic ninth Australian Open championship on Sunday night, beating Daniil Medvedev of Russia, 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 in the final.
It was a surprisingly convincing win for Djokovic who remains unbeaten in all nine of the Australian Open finals he has played at Rod Laver Arena.
Djokovic overcame an abdominal injury, sustained mid-tournament, to survive the remaining rounds, and eventually dominate the final battle.
"It has been definitely emotionally the most challenging Grand Slam that I ever had with everything that was happening, injury, off-the-court stuff, quarantines," Djokovic said. "It has been, least to say, a roller-coaster ride in the last four weeks."
