“They tolerate a lot of things from me, on and off the court and put up with a lot from me. Without my family and closest people this wouldn’t be possible and I thank you for supporting me. Last but not least, the fans. A record 733,000 – it’s been a record-breaking year in terms of the fans coming to this Australian Open and it’s truly one of the most remarkable sport events around the world and I’m honored to be standing here as a champion for a fifth time and be among an elite group of players.”
