Serbian tennis legend Novak Djokovic claimed a historic ninth Australian Open championship on Sunday night, beating Daniil Medvedev of Russia, 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 in the final. reports that it was a surprisingly convincing win for Djokovic who remains unbeaten in all nine of the AO finals he has played at Rod Laver Arena.

Medvedev entered Sunday's contest on the back of a 20-match winning streak, however on the night was undone by a mixture of Djokovic's prowess and his own unforced errors which numbered nearly double that of his opponent.

Djokovic overcame an abdominal injury, sustained mid-tournament, to survive the remaining rounds, and eventually dominate the final battle.

"It has been definitely emotionally the most challenging Grand Slam that I ever had with everything that was happening, injury, off-the-court stuff, quarantines," Djokovic said.
