The 10th time winning the highest title at the Australian Open has also sealed the 35-year-old return to No. 1 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings for the first time since last June. Losing to Djokovic caused 24-year-old Tsitsipas to lose his first chance to climb to the top spot.
Sunday’s triumph saw the Serbian tie Rafael Nadal’s record of 22 Grand Slam crowns, extending his lead in the ‘Big Titles’ race over Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
