He also achieved a measure of revenge, defeating Daniil Medvedev, the player who denied him a calendar Grand Slam in the 2021 final.
Despite the lack of clear crowd support for either player, Djokovic dominated the match, breaking Medvedev early in the first set and maintaining his lead throughout.
Medvedev fought hard in the second set but couldn’t convert his break chances, allowing Djokovic to take a 2-0 lead.
Djokovic’s killer instinct remained, as he broke Medvedev in the third set and held serve to clinch the title.
