PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Novak Djokovic cruised to a ninth Australian Open success and an 18th Slam as he outclassed Daniil Medvedev in Melbourne. Confirming the world No 1 from Serbia has no intention of passing the baton on to the next generation anytime soon, Djokovic bossed proceedings from start to finish, beating the Russian in straight sets 7-5, 6-2, 6-2.It looked ominous for Medvedev from the outset as Djokovic took the first three games and though the first set did turn out to be a tight affair, it was a one-sided contest from then on. Backed by a vociferous Serbian contingent in a 7,500-strong crowd at the Rod Laver Arena - only permitted to be half full because of Covid-19 - Djokovic moved up through the gears to dominate the second set.That concluded with Medvedev, the world No 4, smashing a racket in sheer frustration and more mistakes crept into the Russian's game in the third set.By this time in full flow, there was no way Djokovic was going to let his position of superiority slip and he wrapped up a comprehensive victory in under two hours.
