Novak Djokovic made modern tennis history last night in Melbourne as the first man in the professional era to win three straight Australian Open titles, beating Andy Murray in the final in four sets.
It wasn't quite the classic fans have come to expect in Grand Slam finals lately, but so little separated the two 25-year olds it took two hours 51 minutes before Djokovic came up with the first service break, and he raced away to win his 6th Grand Slam title 6-7 7-6 6-3 6-2.
At the presentation Djokovic declared Melbourne was definitely his favourite Grand Slam venue.
Murray who was severely hampered by a badly blistered toe, has now lost three finals in the last four years in Melbourne, but he took some consolation from the closeness of the match.
