Novak Djokovic won his tenth Australian Open, rewriting the record book once again. In addition to having hooked his eternal rival Rafael Nadal at 22 Grand Slams, the Serbian phenomenon also took his revenge after last year’s events.
We recall that Nole had to skip the past edition of the Happy Slam due to his vaccination status, ending up at the center of a bad soap opera that led to his sensational expulsion from the country. The world number 1 used the following months to recover physically and above all mentally, before going back to beating the competition.
The 35-year-old from Belgrade gave a real show of strength at Melbourne Park, dropping just one set during the tournament and demolishing all his opponents from the round of 16 onwards. However, the ‘Djoker’ ended up in the eye of the storm due to his father Srdjan and the injury to his left hamstring suffered in Adelaide.
Indeed, many have doubted the veracity of that physical problem. In an interview with ‘Tennis Majors’, Djokovic said he will show medical evidence to confirm the extent of his injury.
Nole Djokovic is angry
Novak Djokovic told TennisMajors that he has made the decision to show medical evidence that will confirm the extent of his hamstring injury in his left leg.
“I feel the need to prove the veracity of my problems because some comments have bothered me. Soon I will go into details and offer proof, not so much for those people who doubt, but for me and all the people around me,” said the Serbian tennis player, who insisted on the difficulty he has had to deal with this physical problem and on the obligation imposed by his medical team not to train on days when he did not have a game.
Two years ago he passed himself and there were people who also doubted. If it had been a small problem he would have trained, he had never had to give up practice on days without matches. It has been an exhausting process and I have felt God’s support to get ahead,” he said.
Nole was glad to spend time after his 10th win with the same people who cheered him on during his maiden triumph in Australia 15 years ago. “Hey everyone. The morning after, always feels great holding this trophy for the 10th time, and very grateful for all the support I’ve been getting over the last few weeks here in Melbourne but also around the world.
I’m really glad to share some nice moments, the morning after victory, with my parents and brother that have been here the first time I won a Grand Slam, Australian Open in 2008. So, it’s been a wonderful journey, 15 years and to have them there, makes this win even more special,” said Djokovic.
