Australian Open: Novak Djokovic defeats Daniel Medvedev to win 9th title in Melbourne



With a three-set win over Medvedev, Djokovic has once again proved that the Australian Open is his favorite stadium.

NOwak Djokovic won his ninth Australian Open title 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 against Daniel Medvedev in the final in Melbourne this Sunday. World No. 1 needed just 1 hour and 53 minutes to knock out the Russian, who had failed for the second time in the Grand Slam final since the US Open in 2019.

With this victory, Djokovic has 18 Grand Slam crowns and Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal together have set a record of 20 trophies.

The final was undefeated between Daniel Medvedev since last November, but there was great hope between Novak Djokovic, who has not lost in the final for the first time in Melbourne and any of the last eight at Melbourne Park.

After a controversial first round, Djokovic eventually lost (7-5). The Russian has lost a bit of his playing thread despite having 20 points to his victory.

Since the start of the fortnight, the Monagask residents have broken the second set three times (6-2) and the third time (6-2) twice. Throughout the match, Medvedev scored just 32 percent of his second ball.

If Medvedev failed to put his game into action, all the credit would go to World No. 1. Mentally superior and more violent than his opponent, he has 17 fouls against 30 Russian players. However, Medvedev had twelve wins against the top 10 players.

If Djokovic stays at the top of the world rankings on Monday, the Russian will be on stage for the first time.
