Novak Djokovic won the men’s singles title at the Australian Open tennis tournament for the 10th time in his career.
Djokovic, ranked 5th in the world, defeated Stephanos Tsitsipas (4th place, Greece) 3-0 (6-3 7-6<7-4> 7-6< 7-5>).
Djokovic, who regained supremacy in this tournament two years after 2021, went up to the player box after winning the championship, shared the joy of winning with his family and staff, and then lay down on the floor and shed tears of emotion.
He could have been calm by winning 10 times in this competition alone, but this year’s victory was especially meaningful to Djokovic.
He had to go through the humiliation of being deported last year in Australia, which he regarded as his ‘second home’.
Arriving at Melbourne International Airport to compete in the Australian Open in January of last year, he was unable to go to his accommodation and was sent to a quarantine facility because he did not get the vaccine for the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19).
He filed two court cases with the Australian federal government, but was unable to appear at the Australian Open and had to return to Serbia ahead of the opening of the tournament. 메이저사이트
