Novak Djokovic had to dig deeper than he has ever dug in the past, but the 32-year-old Serbian still found a way to win his record-extending eighth Australian Open title and 17th Grand Slam crown on Sunday in Melbourne.
Djokovic came back from two sets to one down for the first time in a major final to beat Austrian Dominic Thiem 6-4, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 over three hours and 59 minutes.
