    Brilliant work on another Australian title @DjokerNole , under so much pressure in such difficult times. You continue to show the world what a great champion you are. There was no doubt in your mind tonight - Daniil felt the full force of your will. Sublime 9! πŸš€

    I expect Medvedev to push Djokovic all the way in the #AusOpen men’s final. I won’t be surprised if he breaks through for the win. It’s Novak’s happy place at RLA but he will have his work cut out suppressing Daniil’s happy, free-flowing strokes. This will be a great contest. πŸš€

    What an incredible performance to win the AO title @naomiosaka. I wish I could have been there in the stands to see you win your 4th major, you’re an amazing champion. @jennifurbrady95, you had a great summer Down Under. It’s tough now but keep striving, your time will come. πŸš€
