After two weeks of some of the best tennis, the 2023 Australian Open has come to an end. We were treated to a couple of exciting matches on day 14, with the men’s singles final being the highlight of the day. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the Australian Open results today.
Men’s Singles Final
Novak Djokovic battled Stefanos Tsitsipas for the first grand slam title of the year on Sunday. Although the former World number 1 ended up winning in straight sets, this was a tightly-contested fixture, with two of those sets ending in tie-breaks.
Interestingly, Stefanos Tsitsipas had a chance to take the second set, but failed to convert a set point on Djokovic’s serve. The Serb forced a second set tie break, which he proceeded to win. In the third set, Tsitsipas broke Novak Djokovic’s first serve, but was broken right back. Again, it was the 35 year old who emerged victorious after the third set went to a tie-break.
With his win against Tsitsipas, Novak Djokovic has now won 28 consecutive matches at the Australian Open, a new record. The former World number 1 is also tied for most singles grand slam titles alongside Rafael Nadal; and he has won a record 10 Australian Open titles.
It’s also important to point out that both players had the chance to finish at the top of the ATP rankings prior to this match; and with his win on Sunday, Novak Djokovic will be World number 1 once again.
Women’s Doubles Final
Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova went up against the Japanese pair of Shuko Aoyama and Ena Shibahara in the women’s doubles final. Although these are two of the top 10 doubles teams on the women’s side, they had previously never met before this tournament.
Aoyama/Shibahara had knocked out the second seeded team of Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula in the semi-final. They had surrendered just one set from the first round through to the final, and came into this match having won their last nine consecutive sets.
On the other hand, Krejcikova/Siniakova were the top seeded team in this tournament, as well as the defending champions. Like their opponents, they had won nine sets in a row, and only dropped one set in their previous five matches.
As expected, it was business as usual for Krejcikova/Siniakova, as they converted four of six break points en route to a straight sets victory. It’s important to point out that Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova have been by far the best doubles pair over the past year; they won three of four grand slams last year, except the French Open, in which they didn’t participate. As a matter of fact, Krejcikova/Siniakova are currently on a 24-0 run in grand slams, having won the last four doubles grand slams they participated in. That said, this was their seventh doubles grand slam title together.
