Melbourne: Serbian Novak Djokovic dismantled Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in straight sets to win a record-extending ninth Australian Open title at the Rod Laver Arena on Sunday. The win moves World No. 1 Djokovic, 33, within two of Swiss great Roger Federer and Spain’s Rafael Nadal’s record total of 20 major victories.

With Naomi Osaka and Novak Djokovic winning, the two favourites for the tournament turned up and delivered big time despite all the obstacles. While Osaka navigated the draw from hell. Djokovic tore through the challenges that came his way and beat Daniil Medvedev 7-5, 6-2, 6-2, for his 18th Grand Slam.

“Great guy Daniil, class act. We used to spend more time practising in Monaco. You are not calling me anymore… (both laugh) He is one of the toughest players I have faced on court.You will definitely win a Grand Slam… if you don’t mind waiting a few more years (all laugh).” said Djokovic. Medvedev.

“A small story. I first played Novak when I was 500 in the world. He was talking to me, asking me questions. It never changed whether I was 500 or No. 4. You are a great person.”

At Australian Open Novak Djokovic played 90 matches; he lost 8 matches and won 82 matches with a win percentage of 91.11. Not quite 100-2, but that is as good as it gets. It’s his living room, after all. Domination should be like this!
