Australian Open 2023: Novak Djokovic is the 10th tennis player: he surpasses Nadal in seven major titles and Federer in 12

Ehe place looks familiar to Novak Djokovic. In the gardens attached to the Governor’s house, the brand new Australian Open champion is immortalized for the tenth time with the Norman Brookes trophy.

For the occasion, the organization has placed a giant 10 on the grass that symbolizes the achievement of the Serbian on the slopes of Melbourne Park.. The day dawned cloudy in the capital of Victoria, but the sun shines inside a tennis player who has gone from being deported in Australia to being acclaimed in a year.

Djokovic wears a smile from ear to ear, dressed for the occasion by Lacoste, one of his sponsors. The tennis player returns to Belgrade today and will take a few days off to assimilate the victory before returning to official competition at the Dubai Open 500 (February 27 to March 4)..

In the emirate he was going to coincide with Rafael Nadal, his great rival. Finally, he will not do it due to the grade 2 injury in the iliac psoas of the Spanish, who hopes to be at his best for the European clay court tour.

That means that the two colossi of the racket will not meet again in a frame until the Monte Carlo Masters 1,000, among other things because Novak is still unable to enter the United States because he has not been vaccinated against the coronavirus. This makes it impossible for him to participate in the TMS in Indian Wells and Miami.
