Prime Time Zone, Sports: The Australian Open means Djokovic has turned a blind eye. Continuing his dominance at the Australian Open, he not only won the hat-trick title but also won the Australian Open 9 times. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia has reached the Australian Open finals nine times, winning all the time. He defeated the world number four Daniel Medvedev 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 in the final at the Rod Lever Arena on Sunday to become the Australian Open champion. Medvedev, who faced Djokovic in the first set, lost the set and never recovered. Djokovic also won the remaining two sets with great fanfare. During that time, Medvedev repeatedly looked at his coach and said, “I can’t do anything.” With this victory, Djokovic won 18 Grand Slams. Before Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal topped the 20 Grand Slams. It would not be difficult for Djokovic to break their record if they continue in the same form.

Djokovic has won six of the last 10 Grand Slam titles. With this victory, Djokovic will remain at No. 1 until March 8. With this, Federer is going to break the record of being the top ranker for 311 weeks. This is Djokovic’s 28th Grand Slam final. Federer leads Djokovic with 31 finals.
