Victory takes Djokovic to 19 grand slam titles, just one record away from the all-time record jointly held by Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.

“It was an electric atmosphere,” Djokovic said after the match.

“I want to thank my coach, my physio and everyone who has been with me on this journey. I have played almost nine hours over the last 48 hours against two great champions. It was really tough physically over the last three days, but I trusted in my capabilities and I knew I could do it.

“I would like to say a few words to Stefanos: I can relate to what he’s going through and I understand how difficult it is to lose in the final. These are the kind of matches you learn from most and knowing him and his team, he will come out much stronger. I definitely believe he’ll win many grand slams in the future, so respect to you and your team.
“I would also like to send my big regards to all the people in Serbia who have supported me, and to everyone who has come out to watch us.
