Dominating the men’s game, Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have now won fifteen out of the last sixteen Grand Slam titles in spite of all being well into their 30s.
A wild, see-sawing initial set paved way to Djokovic undisputed dominance as the world No. 1 with a 7-5 6-2 6-2 victory, bringing him his 18th major singles title which is just 2 lesser than his closest rivals Federer and Nadal.
In the after-match interview, Djokovic had named Medvedev “one of the toughest players” that he has ever played in his life and he is certain that he’ll win a grand slam someday — but his last line actually cracked the crowd up.
“It is a matter of time when you hold a grand slam, that is for sure — if you don’t mind waiting a few more years,”
Djokovic has confirmed that he’s back to full fitness after his abdominal injury he suffered in the 3rd round against Taylor Fritz and struggling through matches against Milos Raonic and Alexander Zverev.
He has declared himself back in peak condition after beating Aslan Karatsev in straight sets in the semi-finals, which proved to be bad news for Medvedev
Djokovic also cleared that there have been lots of mixed feelings about what has happened in the last few month with tennis players coming to Australia. But thinks when lines are drawn in the end it was a successful tournament.
He went on congratulating the head of Tennis Australia, Craig Tiley, for his effort.
“Look, it’s not easy. It’s very challenging on many different levels. But, you know, I think they should be proud of themselves and of what they have put together.
“Thank you guys (the Melbourne crowd) very much for making it possible. Appreciate it. Thank you.”
