The Incredibly Great Novak Djokovic Eases To A Record 8th Australian Open Crown, Naomi Osaka Wins Her Second Straight Major, Also “Down There”

January 27, 2019

Novak Djokovic won his third straight major tennis tournament and fifteenth of his incredible career, completely outplaying another great, Rafael Nadal to win the final match held earlier today in Australia, in straight (the minimum three) sets.

This is Djokovic’s 7th Australian Open crown, breaking a record he shared with Roy Emerson and Roger Federer. He moved by Pete Sampras into third place in major tournament wins, trailing only Federer (20) and Nadal with 17.

Meanwhile, Naomi Osaka won her second straight woman’s major crown, defeating Petra Kvitova, in a very tough maximum (3) set match.

Perhaps Ms. Osaka is on her way to greatness, while Mr. Djokovic already there moved closer to a special pantheon of that all too often used term (greatness), easing by Nadal, who had not lost even a set, before Djokovic eased (6-3, 6-2 and 6-3).
