Novak Djokovic Wins Australian Open 2008 Title

Novak Djokovic has claimed his first grand slam title in his career after a hard-fought 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 victory over Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. No doubt, it is a memorable night for the third seed Serbian, who had only one grand slam final appearance before Australian Open 2008. However, the victory did not come easily for Djokovic as Jo-Wilfried Tsonga started the match in style winning the first set 6-4.

After the first set, there were many who started to prepare for another magic from Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who earlier defeated Andy Murray, the ninth seed, and Rafael Nadal, the second seed, in his way to the final. However, Novak Djokovic bounced back and proved his worth once again. Djokovic won the next two sets with sheer dominance, though Tsonga tried his best and posed some threat for the Serbian.

Djokovic faced a real challenge in the fourth set that he had to win in tie-breaker. Tsonga played very well in the set going hand in hand with Djokovic. Neither of them could break serve in the set and eventually it went to tie breaker to be decided. However, Tsonga’s all resistance fall down in the tie-breaker as Novak Djokovic sealed the match and made it a special day in his life.

The tournament has come as a breakthrough for Tsonga, who started the tournament as world no. 38 and there were hardly any one who could even think off Tsonga would be one of the finalists before the Australian Open 2008 kicked off. Australian Open 2008 now deserves a place in the history as a tournament where the dominance of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal ended and it introduced two finalists who had not won any grand slam title before the tournament.
