Djokovic lost 1-3 to Sinner Australian Open semifinals ‘shocking elimination’

Sinner, who was completely defeated without a single break, was eliminated in the semifinals of the Australian Open for the first time, and advanced to the finals of a major tournament for the first time.

“My performance… “I was shocked too.” Novak Djokovic (Serbia), the world number one in men’s tennis, postponed his record number of wins in a major tournament to the next opportunity. On the 26th, Djokovic was defeated by Jannik Sinner (Italy, 4th place) in the semifinals of the Australian Open, his first major tournament this season, and was thwarted from advancing to the finals. At the press conference after the loss, Djokovic said with a gloomy expression, “I was a little shocked by my performance.” The photo below shows Sinner, who beat Djokovic and likes it.

Novak Djokovic (37, Serbia, 1st place) suffered the most painful defeat in the history of participating in the Australian Open tennis tournament. Djokovic bowed 1-3 (1-6, 2-6, 7-6, 3-6) to Jannick Sinner (23, Italy, 4th place) in the Australian Open men’s singles semifinals on the 26th. This is the first time that Djokovic, who holds the record for the most Australian Open men’s singles wins (10), has recorded a loss even after reaching the semifinals. Djokovic was previously a player who was guaranteed to win the Australian Open if he reached the semifinals.

It has been 2,195 days since January 22, 2018 that Djokovic, who holds the record for the most wins (24) in the four major tournaments (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, US Open), lost at the Australian Open. Djokovic lost 0-3 (6-7, 5-7, 6-7) to Korea’s Chung Hyeon (28) in the round of 16 of the tournament. Djokovic was on a 33-game winning streak at the Australian Open. Except for failing to participate in the 2022 tournament due to his refusal to be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus infection, Djokovic had not lost a single tournament since 2019.

Djokovic, who failed to break his opponent’s serve game once that day, said, “I was a little shocked by my condition today. His first two sets were a mess. “I think he was the worst in the history of major tournament appearances.” Djokovic could only win 13 games on this day, including sets 1 to 4. Djokovic left such a record at the Australian Open 17 years after losing 0-3 (2-6, 5-7, 3-6) to ‘Tennis Emperor’ Roger Federer (43, Switzerland, retired) in the round of 16 in 2007. That’s it.

Djokovic, who complained of wrist pain ahead of this tournament, was asked if he was starting to age, saying, “I’m not sure. He doesn’t usually feel good at the start of the season. But it has already happened. “I still think I can challenge for major championships and the Olympics.” Ahead of this season, Djokovic announced his intention to challenge for the ‘Golden Grand Slam’ of winning all four major tournaments and the Olympics. It is a record that no one has achieved in men’s tennis history.

With today’s victory, Sinner took one step closer to the title of ‘Djokovic’s nemesis’. Sinner won 2-1 (6-2, 2-6, 7-5) over Djokovic in the Davis Cup, a national men’s tennis tournament, on November 26 last year, and then continued his two-game winning streak. Sinner has 3 wins and 4 losses against Djokovic. Sinner is the first player born in the 21st century to beat Djokovic three times. With today’s victory, Sinner successfully advanced to the finals of a major tournament for the first time. Sinner also set a record of becoming the first Italian player, male or female, to reach the finals of the Australian Open.

Meanwhile, Chung Chin-won (22, China, 15th place) and Arina Sabalenka (26, Belarus, 2nd place) will face off in the women’s singles final of the tournament held on the 27th. It has been 10 years since the 2014 Australian Open champion Lina (41) that a Chinese player reached the singles final of a major tournament. Lina also took the top spot at the 2011 French Open. 19가이드03
