The tournament's only set-loser, Novak Djokovic, remarked:
It's been a long journey, but a very special one. I played some of my best tennis honestly in Australian Open. The fourth round, quarter-final, semi-finals, just really comfortable on the court, hitting the ball great.- Novak Djokovic
In his first major final, at the 2021 French Open, Tsitsipas gave up a two-set lead to Djokovic, but this time in Melbourne, he never stopped trying to win.
The third seed failed to convert on the few crucial chances he had to put Djokovic in danger, most notably a set point to equal the match at one set apiece.
Djokovic has a record-breaking winning streak of 28 victories in the men's singles at Melbourne Park, dating back to 2018.
He has reclaimed the title that he was unable to defend the previous year due to his deportation from Australia as a result of a dispute regarding his COVID-19 immunization status.

Tsitsipas fought back to save two match chances, but Djokovic converted on his third opportunity when his opponent missed a forehand after a brief rally.
Djokovic stood motionless before turning to face his team and his family, which included mother Dijana but did not appear to include father Srdjan. He then pointed to his head and his heart.
The enormity of his accomplishment struck him as he climbed into the box to rejoice with them, and he burst into tears. He remained crying under his towel when he went back to his chair.
I think I emotionally collapsed there and teared up with my mother and my brother when I gave them a hug. Up to that moment I was not allowing myself to be distracted with things off the court or whatever was happening in dealing with an injury.- Novak Djokovic
