Reactions to Novak Djokovic’s 10th Australian Open Title From Around the Internet

Novak Djokovic Australian Open 2023

Novak Djokovic captured a record-extending 10th Australian Open title on Sunday after defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets. Djokovic simultaneously ties the men’s all-time record of 22 Grand Slams jointly held with Rafael Nadal.

The Serbian star is also set to reclaim the No. 1 ranking officially on Monday, a little over six months from losing that title.

The aftermath of this comprehensive win took many by surprise. Djokovic, a combative tennis opponent with a nonchalant look on the court, could not hold himself after sealing his 22nd Major title. There was the embrace of pure elation with his team before sobbing uncontrollably on her mother’s shoulder and lying on his back in his team’s box. Djokovic, as he put it in his post-match winner’s interview, had attained the biggest victory of his life.

There was an outpouring of praise from all corners of the tennis world from players and fans alike. The first to congratulate him was the beaten opponent Tsitsipas, who unfortunately has now lost his two Grand Slam finals to the Serbian star.

Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios lead Djokovic tributes

”He is the greatest that has ever held a tennis racket,” Tsitsipas candidly remarked at the trophy presentation.

Fellow players joined in. Nick Kyrgios whose bromance with Djokovic continues to blossom tweeted shortly after the Serb’s triumph.

Kyrgios also jokingly sent another tweet saying Djokovic ‘will get to 28 slams easy’.

Djokovic’s tennis throughout the fortnight was on a different level. Spain’s Alejandro Davidovich Fokina seemed to agree.


The incumbent to Djokovic’s throne Carlos Alcaraz also weighed in. The injured Spanish sensation applauded Djokovic’s monumental achievement and is looking forward to sharing the stage when he returns to action.

After being deported last year, resilience was at the forefront of everything Djokovic did ever since.

Djokovic is yet to taste defeat since the turn of the year and will be the man to beat in 2023.

Canada’s Vasek Pospisil who leads the Executive Committee of the PTPA council along with Djokovic also praised his counterpart’s latest milestone.


Former World No. 7 Mardy Fish who had his own battles with Djokovic towards the end of his career appreciated the effort and greatness of the soon-to-be World No. 1 again.

Australian tennis legend Rod Laver was among those who witnessed firsthand Djokovic rewriting the history books.


World No. 140 John Millman tweeted ingeniously.
