Novak Djokovic showed no signs of an injury that might derail his Australian Open campaign when he beat unseeded Sebastian Korda Sunday.

He also took his second Adelaide title 16 years after his first; he won the tournament in 2007, aged 19.

“I hope everyone enjoyed the show tonight, it’s been an amazing week,” Djokovic said. “Seb’s had an amazing tournament and put in an amazing effort today. “I’d like to thank my team for handling me, tolerating me in the good and bad times today. I’m sure they didn’t have such a blast with me going back and forth with them but I appreciate them being here.”Article content

Djokovic saved a match point at 5-6 on serve in the second set, then forced the set into another tiebreaker that he took comfortably. In doing so she ended an extraordinary run by the 18-year-old Noskova who beat third-seeded Daria Kasatkina and former Australian Open champion Viktoria Asarenka in the main draw on the way to her first final.

“I want to congratulate on an amazing week. I think you’re going to have a great future and 100 percent appear in many more finals.”
