    The Djokovic–Nadal rivalry is a modern-day tennis rivalry between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

    Novak Djokovic showed no mercy to Rafa Nadal in an unbelievable display in the men's final. Djokovic produced one of the great grand-slam final performances to swat aside Rafael Nadal and become the first man to win seven titles at the Australian Open.

    The predictions had been for something akin to their near six-hour battle in the final here seven years ago but Djokovic had other ideas, taking just two hours and four minutes to claim a 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 victory and a 15th slam crown.

    The title, his first in Melbourne since 2016, separated him from the tie he was in with Roy Emerson and Roger Federer, while Djokovic is the first man ever to win three successive slam titles on three different occasions.

    This is the first time Nadal has ever lost a grand-slam final in straight sets.
