The victory placed Djokovic at the top of the list of all-time champions after he defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas for his 23rd Grand Slam win. Following his historic win, the tennis champ said in a post-game interview that this is his "biggest victory" to date after overcoming the many obstacles thrown at him over the past few years.
"Obviously a Grand Slam is a Grand Slam," said Djokovic at the awards ceremony, according to ATP Tour. "The four biggest tournaments that we have in our sport. Every single player dreams of being on this stage and winning the trophy at least once in their career. I’m beyond fortunate in my life to win 23 times, it’s an incredible feeling."
In 2022, Djokovic suffered a memorable loss to Nadal in the French Open quarterfinals after being deported from Australia over refusing the experimental Covid-19 gene therapy vaccine. He went on to win the Wimbledon Cup but withdrew from the US Open, Fox News reports.
Djokovic, who has won 10 Australian Open men's singles titles, ranks as the No. 5 men's singles player worldwide, according to ATP.
