for those who may have forgotten, here is how it all worked out in 2008. The mighty Serbian Slayer took his first slam here:
Djokovic Captures Maiden Grand Slam Title
Third seed Novak Djokovic became the first Serbian to capture a Grand Slam singles title with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6(2) victory over unseeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the Australian Open.
Djokovic is the first first-time Grand Slam champion since Rafael Nadal won Roland Garros in June 2005. The 20-year-old Djokovic is the fourth-youngest Australian Open champion in the Open Era.
Mark Edmondson, the last native champion from Australia, was the last unseeded winner in 1976. Tsonga, who beat three Top 10 players en route to his maiden final rises to No. 18 in the South African Airways Rankings.
Eighth-seeded Israelis Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram clinched their first Grand Slam title with a 7-5, 7-6(4) win over French duo and No. 7 seeds Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra.
