Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic became Australian Open 2023 winner. In the final, he defeated the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas in three sets.
In the first game, the fourth game became the key – the Serb took someone else’s serve and confidently kept the advantage. In the second and third sets, Novak finished off Stefanos in tie-breaks. Moreover, in the second tie-break, Djokovic led 5-0 and almost missed the victory, missing three match points.
