Australian Open review; King Novak reigns supreme!

Novak Djokovic put himself into the history books with a record equalling 26th grand slam title, after he won the Australian Open final in straight sets against Stefanos Tsitipas.

Novak’s latest Australian Open title,, his tenth sees him all out on his own as the most successful man in tournament history. It could have been more for tthe new world number one, had it not been due to Australia’s Covid rules.

Rival Rafael Nadal has an unprecedented 13 French Open titles and he is seen as the King of clay.

Maybe Djockovic is the King of Australian grass? Decide amongst yourselves. One thing is for certain, the 36-year-old will be returning to the top of the world rankings as a result of this emphatic win.

In the last final between the two men, in what was the French Open final, Tsitipas was two sets to love up, but wasn’t able to hold on. Here in Melbourne, he was outclassed by the better man on the day and never stood a chance.

Despite a battling performance from Stefanos Tsitipas, his wait for an elusive grand slam title goes on. If Novak’s injury situation during the week was anything to go by, the Serbian did very well to even get this far.

It’s been a very good tournament, where there were many shocks such as Andy Murray for all his injury problems he has had over the years, still being able to get to the third round of the Australian Open.

With Rafael Nadal, Daniel Medvedev and Alexsander Zverev all getting knocked out in earlier rounds, Novak Djokovic would have seen a clearer path to the final.

Not to taken away from the now 10-time Australian Open champion, but the exits of some of the bigger names in the men’s game, did help Novak. Congrats to the new world number one, who regains his title from Nadal.

Just to think what could have happened had Djokovic not been deprived of his right to defend his title.
