Novak Djokovic scripted history on Sunday evening when he outsmarted Stefanos Tsitsipas to clinch his tenth Australian Open title, at Melbourne Park. The newly World Number 1 defeated Tsitsipas 6-3, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5) in the final at the Rod Laver Arena to equal Rafael Nadal’s all-time men’s record of 22 Grand Slam titles. Djokovic begins a record-extending 374th week as the top-ranked men’s player.

Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic’s video has gone viral on the internet where he can be seen singing ‘Munchachos’ that made Argentina popular at the Qatar World Cup. After winning his record title at the year’s first Grand Slam event, the Melbourne King was invited to sing the famous song during his interaction with a journalist from the ESPN Argentina channel. Delighted with his triumph, Djokovic didn’t deny the request of the report and went on to sing to the rhythm of ‘Muchachos.’ 

Check out the video.

Notably, the song ‘Muchachos’ which references Messi, Maradona and Argentina’s hopes erupted into viral song since Messi himself said on a TV channel that it was one of his favourite football songs. Originally titled “Muchachos, Esta Noche Me Emborracho” (“Boys, Tonight I’ll Get Drunk”), it was a melancholic heartbreak number written in 2003 by La Mosca lead singer Guillermo Novellis and Sergio Cairat. During the Qatar world cup, videos of Messi and his teammates singing and jumping to the song in the dressing room after the game against Mexico also went viral.

"Only the team and family know what we have been through in the last four to five weeks. This probably is the biggest victory in my life considering the circumstances. I have to say that this has been one of the most challenging tournaments I have played in my life, considering the circumstances. Not playing last year, coming back this year. I want to thank all the people that made me feel welcome and comfortable to be in Melbourne, Australia,” Novak said after winning the title.
