Another chapter in the legend: Novak Djokovic won the Australian Championship today for the 10th time in his career, and once again left the tennis world thrilled with another impressive sporting display, on the way to the history books.

The Serbian continued his wonderful control in Melbourne, after defeating Stephanos Tsitsipas in the final 3:6, 6:7 (4), 6:7, won the 22nd Grand Slam title in his career and equaled Nadal as the all-time leader.

Nola, who went 0:10 in the finals in Australia, also returned to first place in the world, and at the end of the game he cried in a rather unusual way, implying that he had not had easy days.

Among the Grand Slams, Nola has indeed compared to Rafael Nadal with 22 (both are above Roger Federer with 20), but he is also above them in the other indicators.

Today the game returned to the top of the world in the 374th week of his career, with Federer having "only" 310 weeks and Landal 286.

So many trophies, and still Bogga.

"It was a great battle," said Djokovic at the end, turning to Tsitsipas, "this is not your last final, you are one of the most professional players on the tour, and one of the most interesting players I have met, I already told you that."

Djokovic said that "neither Serbia nor Greece have a great tradition of tennis, so the message is to every young tennis player in the world, who watches us and dreams - dream big, everything is possible".

According to him, "The journey my family and I have gone through, I don't know where to start. I appreciate the patience, love and support you give me. Why are you laughing, Goran? I don't know if you'll forgive me for everything I've done to you over the years, but this title is yours Just like he is mine."

Djokovic added that "It was one of the most challenging tournaments I've had in my life. After not playing last year, and coming back this year... Thanks to everyone who made me feel at home. There's a reason why I played the best tennis of my life right here, in front of Rod Leiber It's a long journey, only my family and my team know what we've been through in the last 4-5 weeks, and considering the circumstances, this is the biggest victory of my life."

What do the commentators say?

"I've never seen him as excited as I saw him today," said commentator and former player John McEnroe, "he's a phenomenal player, and a phenomenal person. I'm his age, I didn't have his fire, because of the kids. But Nola is focused on the goal, and that It requires a lot of sacrifice, a lot of determination, and that's what separated the big three from all the rest. They are hungrier, more disciplined, and do what is required."

Tim Hanneman: "He is a player who raises the bar mentally, physically and technically for the entire industry, and this is not his last title. He broke all the records, and this is not the last word."

Mats Wilander: "He manages to adapt to any situation, any injury, any situation off the field. 22 Grand Slams is amazing, but the other numbers in his career are also amazing. To win in many tournaments, in Tel Aviv, in Kazakhstan, it illustrates the determination."
