Novak Djokovic triumphed for the tenth time at the Australian Open, respecting the predictions of the eve and proving to be still the strongest. In addition to having hooked Rafael Nadal at the top of the all-time Grand Slam rankings, Nole returned to the top of the world rankings by ousting Carlos Alcaraz from the throne.
The Serbian champion confirmed that he has a special feeling with the Happy Slam, where he hasn't lost since 2018. The 35-year-old from Belgrade lost only one set during the tournament and the only unknowns were related to his physical conditions.
Novak played the AOs with a left hamstring injury, which he sustained during the Adelaide ATP semi-final against Daniil Medvedev. Goran Ivanisevic's protégé wasn't very brilliant in the first week of the Australian Open, but his level has risen dramatically from the second round onwards.
On the sidelines of the tournament, AO director Craig Tiley revealed that the Serbian had been playing with a three-centimeter tear in his left thigh.
Broady on Nole Djokovic's injury
Challenged like many by the debate around the real injury of Novak Djokovic following his 10th title won at the Australian Open, Liam Broady, current 178th player in the world, therefore used his Twitter account to ask the opinion of his subscribers and also give his feelings on this story.
And if he absolutely does not question the injury and the assertions of the Serb, the Briton was surprised by the exit of Craig Tiley, director of the Australian Open, who himself revealed to the press the information that Djokovic suffered a 3 centimeter tear in his hamstrings.
"My sister played with a torn hamstring for a long time, and I'm not saying Novak's hamstrings weren't torn. But it's still strange that Craig Tiley leaked Novak's private medical information before Novak did. If he suffers a muscle tear like Craig Tiley said after dominating the Australian Open, that's unbelievable." A video shared by the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) showed the World No.
1 with a young boy, enganged in deep conversation. "Always believe in your dreams, I think that is very important," the 35-year-old said. "Whatever you imagine and you are at that age when your imagination is very strong so don't let anybody tell you that your imagination is not good, it is good.
When I was eight, I was in my room, in Belgrade Serbia, where I'm from, and I was making the improvised Wimbledon trophy out of the materials that I had in the room. I was making like a little toy and I had a game with myself and I was looking in the mirror, holding this trophy and saying that I will be a Wimbledon champion one day."
