Novak, who is ranked No. 1 in the world, beat Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in the men’s singles finals at Rod Laver Arena.

This is also his ninth Australian Open title and 18th Grand Slam title. He is now just behind the all-time record of 20 Grand Slam wins held by Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.

“Everyone has their own journey and their own way of making history, and they’ve made history already. I’m trying to build that and develop that myself in a very unique authentic way that is suitable to me. Whether I think about winning more slams and breaking records, of course I do. Most of my attention and energy from this day forward until I retire from tennis is going to be directed in majors and trying to win more major trophies,” he said after the game.

He also made headlines for doing something in a fit of rage days before.

Novak Djokovic Destroys Tennis Racket in Fit of Rage During Australian Open Match (Video)

Novak Djokovic is going viral after he destroyed his tennis racket in a fit of rage while playing in the 2021 Australian Open today.

The 33-year-old tennis pro was playing against Alexander Zverev of Germany during day nine of the Open at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Australia.

The current number one men’s player in the world accidentally blew a play while hitting his ball into the net. In a fit of rage, he destroyed his racket on the court and even left some white marks on the blue ground.

Someone actually had to come to the court to clean up after the fit of rage. Novak ended up winning the match and will play in the semi-finals tomorrow.

Novak has been no stranger to controversy and was actually disqualified from the US Open this past year after hitting his tennis ball into the throat of a line judge.

Novak Djokovic Hits Line Judge in the Face with Tennis Ball, Not Disqualified This Time!

Novak Djokovic has done it again!

Just one month after the tennis star was disqualified from the U.S. Open after accidentally hitting a lineswoman with a tennis ball, he hit a line judge in the face during the French Open.

The moment happened during Novak‘s fourth round match against Karen Khachanov of Russia on day nine of the 2020 French Open on Monday (October 5) at Roland Garros in Paris, France.

Novak was disqualified from the U.S. Open because the ball hit the lineswoman when he smacked the ball out of the court in a moment of frustration. Since the ball wasn’t in play at the time, he was disqualified.

The French Open moment was purely accidental and it happened while the ball was still in play, so he was able to continue in the tournament. The line judge thankfully was not injured.

Novak Djokovic Makes Statement Following Being Disqualified From US Open: 'This Whole Situation Has Left Me Really Sad And Empty'

Novak Djokovic has issued a statement following his disqualification from the 2020 US Open.

If you didn’t see, the 33-year-old Serbian tennis player was disqualified after accidentally hitting a lineswoman with a ball during a fit of anger mid-game.

She was hit in the throat, and dropped to the ground at the back of the court.

After the USTA decision to disqualify him, Novak released his own statement on social media.

“This whole situation has left me really sad and empty,” he started. “I checked on the lines person and the tournament told me that thank God she is feeling ok. I’m extremely sorry to have caused her such stress. So unintended. So wrong. I’m not disclosing her name to respect her privacy.”

Novak added, “As for the disqualification, I need to go back within and work on my disappointment and turn this all into a lesson for my growth and evolution as a player and human being. I apologize to the @usopen tournament and everyone associated for my behavior. I’m very grateful to my team and family for being my rock support, and my fans for always being there with me. Thank you and I’m so sorry.”

Earlier in the summer, Novak made more headlines for his stance on coronavirus.

Novak Djokovic Disqualified From U.S. Open After Accidentally Hitting Line Judge in Throat With Tennis Ball

Novak Djokovic is disqualified.

The No. 1-ranked men’s player has been disqualified from the 2020 U.S. Open after accidentally hitting a lineswoman with a ball during a fit of anger mid-game against Pablo Carreño Busta on Sunday (September 6).

Novak was a favorite to win in the men’s singles tournament, and was down 5-6 in the first set against Pablo Carreño Busta.

Right before, on the second point, he fell to the ground after chasing a shot and was seen holding onto his left shoulder. Frustrated, he walked to the sideline and launched the ball behind him, accidentally hitting the umpire. She was hit in the throat, and dropped to the ground at the back of the court.

He appeared visibly stunned and walked towards her to check on her condition. Officials discussed for several minutes, and decided to default the player, who shook hands with opponent Pablo, who advanced to the quarterfinals.

The disqualification also means there will be a first-time Grand Slam men’s singles champion at the U.S. Open this year.

“In accordance with the Grand Slam rulebook, following his actions of intentionally hitting a ball dangerously or recklessly within the court or hitting a ball with negligent disregard of the consequences, the US Open tournament referee defaulted Novak Djokovic from the 2020 US Open. Because he was defaulted, Djokovic will lose all ranking points earned at the US Open and will be fined the prize money won at the tournament in addition to any or all fines levied with respect to the offending incident,” the USTA said in a statement.

Back in May, Novak came under fire when he broke social distancing rules in Spain and he also made controversial comments back in April about the coronavirus vaccine.

Novak would later test positive for coronavirus, releasing an apology, saying that he was wrong to set up a tour amid the pandemic.

Novak was seen wearing a “Let’s Croc the Court” tee before getting shirtless during his fitness regime on the beach.

He revealed that he tested positive for coronavirus in late June, becoming the fourth tennis player to test positive. He first played in Belgrade, and then in Zara, Croatia. His wife has also tested positive.

“The moment we arrived in Belgrade we went to be tested. My result is positive, just as Jelena‘s, while the results of our children are negative. Everything we did in the past month, we did with a pure heart and sincere intentions. Our tournament meant to unite and share a message of solidarity and compassion throughout the region,” he said.

Back in May, Novak came under fire when he broke social distancing rules in Spain and he also made controversial comments back in April about the coronavirus vaccine.
