With his tenth trophy and the title of Australian champion, Novak Djokovic took a picture this morning (Monday) in the botanical gardens in Melbourne alongside many fans and dozens of photographers and media, and admitted that he is still hungry and intends to attack more and more titles, on the way to becoming the GOAT, the greatest of all time.



Yesterday, Djokovic beat Stephanos Tsitsipas in the Australian Championship final and won the 22nd Grand Slam title in his career.

He has tied Rafael Nadal as the all-time greatest, but while the 36-year-old Nadal is dealing with more and more injuries these days, Djokovic has proven throughout the tournament that he is still in his prime.

Roger Federer, the third on the list of greats with 20 Grand Slams, congratulated Djokovic and wrote to him in a post "Amazing game, again!", and apparently he also knows that the Serbian is never-ending.

"I think I still have a fire inside me, and it burns with a passion for tennis and competitiveness," Djokovic said this morning, "and I think that's what allows me to push myself to the limit. In training, in practices, day after day, over so many years, To continue the same routine and routine of training and travel, which can sometimes be exhausting and uninteresting. But I always remember that there is a greater goal, and a star that guides me, so in fact this title is the star that guides me, and it is a challenge that I always strive for."



Djokovic will try already at Roland Garros to win the 23rd Grand Slam that will put him at the top alone, above all, but in fact he has another challenge: to win the 24th Grand Slam in his career and equal Margaret Court - something that Serena Williams tried desperately to do and failed when she "stuck" " on the 23rd.



"I really don't want to stop here," the Serbian admitted, "and I have no intention of stopping here either. I feel great about my tennis. And I know that when I feel good physically, and mentally present, I have a good chance to win Grand Slams against anyone . I like my chances to continue."



Yesterday, Djokovic broke down in an unusual way after the win, and explained why.

"When I went up to the stands I broke down emotionally and burst into tears next to my mom and brother as I hugged them. Because up until that moment, I didn't allow myself to be distracted by everything outside the field, or everything that happened with my injury... It could easily have distracted me, hurt I'm focused, in my game. It takes a tremendous effort and an investment of a lot of energy from me to stay present, stay focused, take it in stride, day after day, and see where I can get to."



He returned to Australia a year after the embarrassing affair last year, in which he was expelled from the country because he refused to be vaccinated against Corona and even presented false documents.

"I didn't know how I would be received here, but in general it was a positive experience," he said.

However, adding to the constant drama around him was his dad, who was photographed with Russian protesters shouting words of support for Russia.

Following the media storm, his father decided not to come to the semi-final match against Tommy Paul, and then also did not show up for the final to be by his son's side in the big moment.



"I thought things would calm down a bit in terms of the media and everything, but it didn't," Djokovic said of his father, "We both agreed that it would be better for him not to be there. It hurt me, and it hurt him, because these are very special and rare moments, and who knows when they will return It wasn't easy for him. I saw him after that, and he hugged me, but I saw that he was a little sad. But he told me that what's important is that I feel good on the field, that I win, and that if it's better for him not to be in the stands for the victory, then so be it But the main thing is that the ending was good."

Yesterday the whole tennis world saluted Djokovic.

"Haha, I told you," Nick Kyrius wrote, "we created a monster. Well done Novak. I sat on the couch and watched the whole show, I tried to soak it all in... He'll also get the 28th Grand Slam. Easily."

Now he probably has quite a long rest ahead of him, since he will not travel to the tournaments in the USA (Indian Wells and Miami) since the USA still adheres to the vaccination policy.

Since he will likely want to keep his footing and forgo the Dubai tournament in February, it means he will rest until the start of the clay season, then arrive ready for Roland Garros, the tournament where he and Vandal could go head-to-head for a 23rd title.

The greatest Novak of all?

Tsitsipas is not safe

According to his coach, Goran Ivanisevic, the injury he suffered before the tournament was serious.

"Put it this way: I'm not saying that 100 percent, but 97 percent of the players who receive such MRI results on Saturday night before the tournament, go straight to the referee's office and announce their withdrawal from the tournament. But not him," Ivanisevic said, "he gave his all . and every day it got better. I didn't expect it... ok, one round, or two, but after that I was really scared. But he kept going and kept going and finally won the tournament... he got crazier and crazier, I can say that. Crazy In a positive sense, of course."



About Nola's battle against Nadal, Ivanisevic said: "It's a battle between Spain and Serbia... Now the score is 22:22. It's going to be very interesting this year. There are young players, there's a big future for tennis, but these two are still fighting. Now we were on the court Nola's home, and next time we'll meet at Rafa's home court. It's amazing. They really push each other to the edge."
