Novak Djokovic, Naomi Osaka Wins 9th, 2nd Australian Open Title Respectively

Novak Djokovic overtook Daniil Medvedev to win his ninth Australian Open title.

The world number 1 recorded a score of 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 and won the 18th Grand Slam title.

From the very beginning, the 33-year-old Serbian tennis star was a favorite to win compared to its 25-year-old Russian opponent.

Djokovic has been calm in the games compared to Medvedev who throws the racket and shouts his teammates in every set it loses.

Meanwhile, Naomi Osaka pocketed her second Australian Open title after winning against Jennifer Brady.

Although the battle in the first set was intense, Osaka benefited greatly from his experience to reach a 6-4 6-3 win in just one and a half hours.

Also because of the win, Osaka won its fourth grand slam title at just 23 years old.

“Firstly I want to congratulate Jennifer, we played in the semis of the US Open, so a couple of months ago, and I told anyone that would listen that you were going to be a problem – and I was right!” said Osaka during an on-court interview.

“I want to thank my team, I’ve been with them too long. We’ve been through quarantine together and for me, they’re like my family, they’re with me through training, matches, nervous talks before my matches, I’m really appreciative of them, so this one’s for you,” she added.

“I want to thank you guys (the fans), thank you for coming and watching. I didn’t play my last grand slam (the US Open) with fans so just to have this energy it really means a lot, thanks so much for coming. Thank you for opening your hearts and your arms towards us and for sure I feel like playing a grand slam right now is a super-privilege so thank you for this opportunity,” continued Osaka.
