Novak Djokovic on Sunday bagged his 10th Australian Open title defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-3, 7-6, 7-6, a year after he wasn’t allowed to compete at Melbourne Park because he was not vaccinated for Covid-19.

This is also the 35-year-old Serbian player’s 22nd Grand Slam singles title, tying him with Rafael Nadal for the men's record.

In addition to the championship, the winner also claims the No. 1 spot in the ATP rankings.
