On Sunday night in Adelaide, Novak Djokovic was trailing and on the verge of losing when he faced Sebastian Korda for the championship. But the Serbian managed to capture his 92nd tour-level victory in signature style.
After a gruelling three hours and nine minutes, Djokovic defeated the American 6-7(8), 7-6(3), 6-4 after saving title point at 5-6 in the second set. Djokovic gave Korda credit for his tenacity by tapping his right index finger to his head after he missed a final forehand long.
After Jimmy Connors (109), Roger Federer (103) and Ivan Lendl (103), the 35-year-old is currently tied with Rafael Nadal for the fourth-most men's singles titles in the Open Era (94). Since the beginning of 2019, he has won 34 straight games in Australia. He has also won 23 of his last 24 games overall.
