In the early morning hours on Monday, Audemars Piguet brand ambassador Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open against Rafael Nadal in the longest Grand Slam singles final ever.
During an epic match that lasted five sets and nearly six hours, Djokovic overcame a break in the last set to win his fifth Grand Slam tournament and third in a row. Both players pushed themselves to the very limits of human exhaustion in front of 15,000 spectators in the stands and millions of TV viewers.
With this victory Djokovic has consolidated his position as the number one tennis player in the world. All eyes will now turn to Roland Garros where, as the title-holder of Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian Open, Djokovic could become the first tennis player to win four Grand Slams on four different surfaces in a row.
Audemars Piguet congratulates Novak Djokovic on this great victory and wishes him good luck for the rest of the 2012 season.
