TENNIS : DOMINIC THIEM CRACKS; NOVAK DJOKOVIC WINS RECORD 8TH AUSTRALIAN OPEN TITLE !


TENNIS GREAT NOVAK DJOKOVIC HAS WON HIS 17TH GRAND SLAM TITLE WITH A RECORD 8TH WIN AT THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN, AFTER THWARTING A DOMINANT DOMINIC THIEM WHO CRACKED UNDER INTENSE MERCURY PRESSURE AND BLEW HIS 2 -1 SET LEAD IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP BATTLE.

NOVAK DJOKOVIC, WITH HIS NEW TOTAL OF 17 GRAND SLAM TROPHIES, IS NOW INCHING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO ROGER FEDERER'S HISTORIC 20 AND RAFAEL NADAL'S 19 TOTAL GRAND SLAM CROWNS.

NOVAK DJOKOVIC, WHO HAD SOME ISSUES WITH THE CROWD, AND A SARCASTIC BRUSH WITH THE CHAIR UMPIRE FOLLOWING AN UNHOLY SERVE CLOCK VIOLATION CALL AGAINST HIM, WAS DANGEROUSLY TRAILING BEHIND DOMINIC THIEM, WHO LOOKED HELL-BENT IN BURYING THE 'JOKER' IN THE 4TH SET.

DJOKOVIC HOWEVER MANAGED TO TURN THINGS AROUND, LEVELLED THE MATCH AT 2-2, THEN IN THE 5TH SET, SMELLED FIRST BLOOD AND WENT FOR THE KILL.

DOMINIC THIEM, WHO LOOKED MORE HAGGARD THAN DJOKOVIC, COULDN'T PUT IN HIS FIRST SERVES, AND PAID A DEARLY PRICE FOR HIS RATHER SHAKY SECOND SERVES, NOVAK DJOKOVIC - - THE GREATEST RETURNER IN THE SPORT - - JUST ATE THEM LIKE HOT CAKES CRUCIAL MOMENTS DEEP INTO THE MATCH.

AFTER 4 HOURS OF HEART-PUMPING TOE-TO-TOE, NOVAK DJOKOVIC PREVAILED, 4 - 6; 6 - 4; 6 - 2; 3 - 6; 4 - 6.

APART FROM THE TROPHY, ALL THE ACCOLADES AND GLORY - - AND THE CROWN AS 'KING OF MELBOURNE' - - NOVAK DJOKOVIC WILL TAKE HOME A HANDSOME AUD $4.12 MILLION DOLLAR PRIZE MONEY.

WHILE DOMINIC THIEM WILL HAVE TO SETTLE AND TAKE HOME AUD $2.06 MILLION DOLLARS.

FOR NOW, AT LEAST ?
