Serbia's Djokovic Retains Australia Open Title

In this season's first Grand Slam tournament, the world's number one male tennis player Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open for the third consecutive time.


Djokovic beat the world's number three, Britain's Andy Murray, three sets to one (6-7, 7-6, 6-3, 6-2) in Melbourne on Sunday.

Murray took the lead at the beginning, winning the first set, but then Djokovic took complete control over the match, winning the tournament for the third time in a row and the fourth in his career.

Andre Agassi, another four-time Australian Open champion, presented Djokovic with the trophy.

Djokovic said that he was happy to have claimed another victory in his favourite Grand Slam tournament and commiserated with his defeated opponent Murray.

"Andy, you didn’t have luck this time but I wish you a lot of success over the rest of the season. Our matches have always been exciting and I know it will be the same in the future," Djokovic said on Sunday.
