Like everyone else, Djokovic, Nadal and Dominik Tim, tennis players who are the biggest favorites to win the title.
Another fact that worries Djokovic’s fans is that Novak suffered at the exhibition tournament, which was played in Adelaide, with an injury to his wrist and blisters that came out of his hands as a result of inactive training as he was accustomed to.
All these preventative circumstances tell us that the upcoming Australian Open will be completely different from the others.
It’s up to us to hope and cheer for our favorite tennis players, but let’s remember what Djokovic’s path to the eighth title at the Australian Open last year looked like.
Djokovic first defeated German Jan-Lenard Struff 3: 1, in sets 7: 6 (5), 6: 2, 2: 6, 6: 1 in the first round, for a full stadium, and thus qualified for the second round of the Australian Open.
The Serbian ace reached the 900th triumph on the ATP Tour at that match and the place where he currently won seven Grand Slam titles, in the “Rod Laver Arena”.
In the second round, the best tennis player in Serbia was welcomed by the 136th tennis player in the world, the Japanese Tacuma Ito, when the Serbian tennis player was defeated after a match that lasted one hour and 36 minutes, and thus qualified for the third round of the Australian Open.
In the eighth final of the Australian Open, the second racket in the world, Djokovic, competed with Diego Schwartzman. The result of the match was 3: 0 (6: 3, 6: 4, 6: 4) in favor of Serbia, who continued with that victory to the quarterfinals, after playing a little over two hours .
In the quarterfinals was a more serious opponent, Miloš Raonić, but the maximum result was 3: 0 (6: 4, 6: 3, 7: 6) (7: 1) in favor of Novak Đoković, after two hours and 53 minutes of play. a clash of the Titans in the semi-finals in which he failed with Roger Federer defeating Tennis Sandgren in five sets.
A spectacle in the semi-finals that we all love to remember! Anniversary 50th match between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer. A great fight, a game of nerves, but not the one we are used to, the Serb still dominated in the match and finally finished with 7: 6 (1), 6: 4, 6: 3 and on Sunday he will fight for the record eighth trophy in Melbourne against the better from the match Dominic Tim (Austria) – Alexander Zverev (Germany).
Djokovic has since led by 27:23 against an angry rival, but what was most important then was that the victory in the final would bring a return to first place on the ATP list and the 17th Grand Slam trophy in his career.
And finally, in the grand final, for the entire Rod Laver Arena, a clash between Djokovic and Austrian Dominik Tim.
A bump in the throat stood in front of Novak fans as the 0-1 team reached 2-1 in sets. He started the fourth set in which the famous Nole “woke up” and offered his best tennis, as a true champion, which brought him the eighth title at the Australian Open.
This also means Djokovic’s return to first place on the ATP list, as he won the title defense in Melbourne in 2019.
The last game was extremely exciting and dynamic. Djokovic played better in the first set, but at the end of the second and the beginning of the third followed a large series of Austrian tennis players with three equal breaks and six consecutive games.
Novak came back in the fourth set by making a break for 5: 3, and in the last he held more strength and concentration in key moments, which brought him a new title in Melbourne, 17th overall at the Grand Slam. tournaments.
This year, Djokovic will try to win the third title in a row in Melbourne. Thus, if Rafael Nadal did not win the tournament, he would secure first place on March 8, after which he would go down in history as the tennis player with the most weeks spent at the top of the ATP list, and Roger Federer defeated.
