Djokovic shrugs off injury scare, wins Adelaide title

ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) — Novak Djokovic has showed no signs of an injury that might derail his Australian Open campaign in beating unseeded American Sebastian Korda 6-7 (8), 7-6 (3), 6-4 to win the Adelaide International. Djokovic worried Open organizers when he said after his semifinal in Adelaide against Daniil Medvedev that he had been troubled by a tight hamstring. He said the injury eased as the match progressed. If there had been any lingering issue, it likely would have been exposed in Sunday’s marathon final that stretched over more than three hours and finished with Djokovic claiming his 92nd career singles title.
