Djokovic looking for a ‘hat trick’?
World number one, Novak Djokovic played the game of his life to beat Wawrinka in the Australian Open on Sunday.
What an absorbing and amazing match it was. Djokovic is on his way to become the first man since Open era began in 1968 to win three Ausralian titles in succession.
Djokovic, who will meet Tomas Berdych in the quarter finals, has now won 18 successive matches at Melbourne Park, a run that includes the near six-hour final victory over Rafael Nadal in 2012.
In Sunday’s match, the world number one came back from 6-1 5-2 down to win 1-6 7-5 6-4 6-7 (5-7) 12-10 in an electrifying night session.
‘Even though I was 6-1 5-2 down, I believed that I can come back even if I am two sets down. I have been in those situations before.’Djkovic said, after the match.
We thank the winner and the loser for providing us such an exciting entertainment and giving some anxious moments for Djokvic fans like us!
It was real value for money for the capacity crowd who were there to watch it in person, in Australia.
