What has been the outcome of the fight between the two remarkable tennis players in the Australian Open title championship that has left the fans of this much-liked game stunned? The recently concluded Australian tournament crowned the proud Novak Djokovic with a strong force as he knocked his Russian opponent Daniil Medvedev on the tennis court. He claimed a record-setting ninth Australian Open title with this.
Credited with the honour of the world number one, Djokovic registered his huge victory by 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 under the glossy lights at Rod Laver Arena. By his feat, he ensured his 18th Grand Slam title that brings him within tantalising ambit of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s all-time men’s record of the record 20. He is only two positions behind Federer and Nadal. Will he be able to win over them this year? The three players have definitely crossed the age of 30 and moving out of the peak age of staying on the tennis court. Federer and Djokovic are still challenging young players despite their age.
There is arguably no other outstanding player than Djokovic, who took respite under the bright sky after his big win. His skilful play outsmarted his direct rival in three different sets. He emerged as an engineer who prepares a mobile phone that can even survive deep waters. Tennis game lovers watched him earning points in this game through his gaze on attacks all along. He broke Medvedev seven times for the match and closed out the one-sided underhand court contest with a skill of net-rusher and a stunning swooping volley.
More or less, it did remain a reverse of the year 2019 US Open. We saw at the final how this Serbian player had held a commanding lead. The champion served for a straight-sets victory at 6-3, 5-4, but Russian Medvedev capitalised on the uncharacteristic errors from his opponent and turned the match in his favour. However, Djokovic reversed the game point on this edition of the Australian Open Tennis Tournament and brought laurels for himself.
