MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Novak Djokovic climbed into the Rod Laver Arena stands to celebrate his 10th Australian Open championship and record-tying 22nd Grand Slam title Sunday and, after jumping and pumping his fists with his team, he collapsed onto his back, crying. This was also the 93rd ATP tour-level title for Djokovic, breaking a tie with Nadal for the fourth-most. Too speedy and flexible on the run (other than when, moving to his left, Djokovic took a tumble). Yet Djokovic pushes and pushes and pushes some more, until it’s the opponent who is something less than perfect on one swing, either missing or providing an opening to pounce. Still, Srdjan Djokovic did not attend his son’s semifinal or the final.
