Novak Djokovic on Sunday night at the Melbourne Park’s Rod Laver Arena, one again etched his name in history when he defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets to lift an unprecedented 10th Australian Open title and also take his tally of Grand Slams to a record-equalling 22. An evening later, Rafael Nadal spoke out on Djokovic equalling his Slam record while Roger Federer shared a priceless five-word post.
It wasn’t one but three of Nadal’s magnificent record that Djokovic levelled with his Australian Open haul. Besides the aforementioned Grand Slam record, Djokovic also became the second player in Open Era to win a major 10 or more times at a single event, equalling Nadal, who won the French Open 14 times. The two also became the only male players in Open Era to win a single major 15 or more years after their first ever haul.
“Congrats Nole, to you and your team for this great achievement. Enjoy the moment!,” captioned Nadal as he shared a picture of the Instagram story he uploaded on Djokovic’s win.
