Novak Djokovic still looks like man stunned by what he accomplished this weekend at the Australian Open. Not only did he beat Andy Murray in almost five hours, he then beat Rafael Nadal 48 hours in nearly six in hours to win his third Australian Open in one of the greatest Grand Slam finals in history.
“I’m very tired, but fulfilled and full of joy and full of positive emotions,” Djokovic said. “But it’s still very early to realize what’s we havebeen through. Both players in this finals match.
“I’m just happy to be a winner from such a historical match.”
Djokovic won the match in an incredible 5:53.
“It was an amazing effort from both us,” he added. “We drained the last drop of energy that we had in our body to win the match. I think in the end it was just a matter of who wanted more to win it.
“I’m very proud of this achievement.”
Djokovic has now won seven straight against Nadal, all in finals.
“The success is even bigger knowing that I won against my biggest rival,” said Djokovic. “This rivalry gets bigger and bigger everytime we play against each other. I think this is the best match we’ve played against each other.”
