“My Biggest Victory” Poetic Justice For Novak At AO23

Facing Djokovic

By Scoop Malinowski

It has to be the ultimate triumph in the history of tennis. Novak Djokovic overcome the interference of politics, media backstabbing and character assassination attempts, grotesque corrupt injustice, hired goon boo bird agent provocateurs, deep state and establishment backstabbing, ATP and WTA player backstabbing and Lord knows what else – to win his tenth Australian Open and 22nd Grand Slam title overall 63 76 76 vs Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The 35 year old’s final shot of the tournament was an inside in forehand on the line that the brave, determined Tsitispas couldn’t not handle and hit long. Djokovic stood tall, looked at his box and pointed with his index finger at his brain, heart and then balls. The fake news ESPN media got it wrong again and said he pointed to his legs.

Djokovic climbed up and celebrated with his team and family in his box and unleashed a range of emotions – happy, relief, defiant rage and tears of joy. None of his previous 21 major titles ever meant more than this one.

He did it with precise dominant serving and a monster forehand. One TV commentator said Djokovic is still improving at 35.

The Serbian juggernaut has regained the world no. 1 ranking and slayed all the goliath dragons which tried to derail and destroy his career. This was the ultimate triumph in not only tennis history but the history of sport.


Mats Wilander: “You can easily compare the record of Djokovic’s 10 Australian Opens with Rafa Nadal’s 14 French Opens. If you win 10 Australian Opens on hard, that means you have to beat maybe the best field in tennis because everybody knows how to play on hard courts.”

Tsitsipas: “He’s one of the greatest in our sport and I think… he’s the greatest one to ever hold a tennis racquet… It’s all in the numbers… You make me a better player when I’m on the court.”

Novak: “This trophy is yours (his team) as much as it is mine.”

“This has been one of the most challenging tournaments in my life.”

“Thank you very much for being present tonight, Sir (Rod Laver).”

“Probably the biggest victory of my life, considering the circumstances.”

2023 Australian Open attendance, including qualifying, is 902,312 That’s an all-time AO record.

    Well said Scoop and don’t forget the biomedical Security State
    the Deep one

    Goat, nothing else to say

    GOAT. And he will continue to dominate. Who will stop him? Nadal is banged up and won’t be a serious factor on hard… Fed gone… Murray depleted… Medvedev, Alcaraz and Tsisipas will have their days but not while the Lion is roaring. There are other names we like but no one will contend today.

    I love the meme/collage going around of genocide king, Bill Gates, watching on in real-time as the unvaccinated and impudent Djoker triumps. I’m sure a good half of the ATP isn’t vaccinated but that’s immaterial since Djokovic was one of very few who stood up, defied the king’s orders, refused to compromise his natural rights.

    What makes Novak the champion that he is is that year after year, “affair” after “affair”, he is more and more anti-system.

    He refused to embrace woke-ism, matriarchy, LGTB, COVID, Ukr-war and so forth, and remained true to himself. He paid it dearly — from fixed draws to unfavorable schedules, from disqualifications to imprisonment.

    He remains the embodiment of secular human values — generosity (no PR — he paid from his own pocket several times), manhood, courage.

    I liked also that this year, he came back with vengeance. No turning the other cheek. Like a true man should.

  • Scoop Malinowski · January 29, 2023 at 8:22 pm

    Cory, I really doubt Rafa is injured at all. He had to concoct something for the very bad loss to journeyman Mackenzie McDonald. Given Rafa’s track record of promoting injuries after bad losses, his sincerity about any injury is questionable. Ever notice how he never gets hurt when he’s winning? Yes Djokovic has made it clear he’s as hungry as ever to keep on rampaging through the grand slams. He may win all four this year.

  • Scoop Malinowski · January 29, 2023 at 8:24 pm

    Well said Mat, Djokovic overcame the worst injustice in sports history and a whole lot more to regain the throne. Most impressive conquest I’ve ever seen in sports. The book is not finished yet either.

  • Cyndy · January 29, 2023 at 8:54 pm

    Very nicely and distinctly said Scoop Malinowski… was so good that Djokovic won his 10th and most prestigious Australian Open title as well as get back his rightful place of being at number one… it sure had felt odd to hear each time him being at number “5” at all the recent tournaments that he had played in … nevertheless he ploughed on against all the most ridiculous as well as evil odds and played his most tenacious game of which he is the master of. Also,I am not seeing any congratulatory messages from Federer or Nadal. And it was strange to see Mr Gates seated at the Open with the kind of expression on his face that maybe Djokovic may wilt? Hope Djokovic goes on to win the slams this year including RG and USOpen., Mr. Gates should rightfully redeem himself and speak in favour of Djokovic being allowed into the US.

  • Scoop Malinowski · January 29, 2023 at 9:11 pm

    Cyndy, Federer apparently has congratulated Novak’s historic win on Instagram, hopefully it came from the heart and not on the advice of his handlers. It would be nice to see more of Federer publicly respecting Djokovic, as a fair balance to how Djokovic always speaks so favorably of Roger. I kind of wonder if Gates appearance in the front row was for pleasure to enjoy or if he had some kind of ulterior motives such as to distract. Whatever, the tennis deep state failed. The proper world champion has returned to the throne.

  • Cyndy · January 30, 2023 at 7:47 am

    Yes I only just saw that Federer has congratulated Djokovic but he put it as “congratulation” instead of congratulations… and since you mentioned about handler… now it makes me wonder…to be seen if he will genuinely write more nice notes to Djokovic. Yes I do agree with you Scoop Malinowski that Djokovic always has nice words to say about him with that recent one after his semi finals match.

  • Scoop Malinowski · January 30, 2023 at 8:28 am

    Cyndy, now even Rafa has congratulated Djokovic also. This is a big surprise. Slightly wonder if Fedal doing this suddenly is from twitter pressure about not expecting them to congratulate Novak or did it really come naturally from the heart and not for PR image reasons. Let’s see if Rafa and Fed maintain this public kindness for Novak.

  • Cyndy · January 30, 2023 at 11:21 am

    Scoop Malinowski… it’s like an omg moment on Nadal congratulating…. Why take 24 hours plus to do so…. Surely he must’ve watching it live yesterday eager to know. Your hunch could be right on the congratulatory messages coming from the heart in a genuine gesture or just because they were frazzled by seeing the questionable comments on twitter….. either way we shall know as it remains to be seen… I totally agree..

  • Scoop Malinowski · January 30, 2023 at 3:31 pm

    Cyndy, I think because of what’s at stake for Rafa and Djokovic, there is extreme respect but also deep vicious animosity and hostility by each for the other however they both conceal it. They both want to be the best, the same prize. This is the moment of truth. Surely when it’s all over they will be friends but right now they are not even remotely close to being friends. Rafa’s history of backstabbing Novak through the media is indisputable. Just some obligatory congrats on social media means nothing. It all will be settled on the court this year.

  • Scoop Malinowski · January 30, 2023 at 8:01 pm

    Cyndy, this is the first time I ever remember Nadal publicly congratulating another grand slam winner. So for him to do it suddenly now is both curious and suspicious and possibly not authentic.

  • Cyndy · January 31, 2023 at 12:24 am

    Scoop Malinowski…. Yes most definitely not authentic… very matter of fact and very general… secondly it’s very questionable as to whether the admin in his team could have written it …., as if you see the msg it says Nole on there twice and not Novak which is how he always says…. I’m not sure he has ever called him Nole by name… And then to put two cups on there with 22 in between and a photo of Nadal as well in that congratulatory msg…. It’s Djokovics moment so just wish him .. plain and simple….So probably not authentic and genuine….strange!

  • Scoop Malinowski · January 31, 2023 at 7:32 am

    Probably for optics and image reasons. Time will tell, need to see more Cyndy.

  • Cyndy · February 1, 2023 at 8:46 am

    Scoop Malinowski…. Can I ask if you’re also on FB?

  • Scoop Malinowski · February 1, 2023 at 8:53 am

    Yes Cyndy I am on facebook and one of my favorite pages is the Golden Age of Tennis Clubhouse page, many former pros are on it too.

  • Cyndy · February 1, 2023 at 8:17 pm

    Thanks for letting me know Scoop Malinowski…very nice of you to share that and I do appreciate it…will surely look it up…there is also a so called group ‘RafaMania’ which I’m not a part of but keeps popping up now and then… and I somehow feel that’s one way definitely that the hate for Djokovic is planted…. The latest that I saw not even a week after Djokovic won his 10th AusOpen title…, a statement by Toni Nadal saying that Nadal will surely win the next GS (hint//RG) … never mind anaesthetic injected foot, abdominal tear and other body parts issues…here’s hoping that Djokovic will win the calendar slams for this year (RG inclusive) now that he’s cleared to play the USOpen….

  • Scoop Malinowski · February 1, 2023 at 8:55 pm

    Cyndy, the tennis deep state uses many methods to try to villainize Djokovic but the good thing is they are all failing miserably. There is a sense team Nadal realizes what their destiny is for Roland Garros and there only way to avert it is by corruption. Which I heard a rumor is how he managed to “win” RG in 22. The lack of full intensity and adrenaline emotion by Djokovic vs Rafa was suspicious too. Everybody seemed to roll over for Rafa at RG22 including Ruud. We shall see.
