With his victory in the final of the Australian Open 2021 over Daniil Medvedev, Novak Djokovic has set several statistics when it comes to Grand Slam tournaments.
The first number has to do with his final against the Russian. The Serbian got rid of his rival in just one hour and 54 minutes, being the shortest final of a grand slam that he played (He had 28 appearances in finals). Until that record, the shortest had been the one played with Rafael Nadal at the 2019 Australian Open, which lasted 2 hours and 4 minutes.
What’s more Djokovic conquered his 6th Grand Slam title in his 30s, equaling the Open Era record set by Rafael Nadal. He was also able to play his 28th major final, occupying second place with the Majorcan and only being surpassed by Roger Federer who has 31 as the three tennis players who played the most individual finals of the four major tournaments.
