Novak Djokovic won over Andy Murray 6-7 (2/7), 7-6 (7/3), 6-3, 6-2 in a gruelling 3-hour-40-minute match in the Australian Open on Sunday, January 27. It was the Serbian’s fourth Australian crown and his sixth Grand Slam title overall. The 25-year-old became the first man in the Open Era and only the third ever to win 3 consecutive Australian Open titles. Djokovic reaffirmed his standing as the No. 1 ranked player, as Andy Murray remained No. 3, after Roger Federer. Murray won a tight opening set with a tiebreaker, but lost the second set at the 2hr 13min mark. Hamstring problems plagued Murray as Djokovic eventually gained control of the match. Meanwhile, Belarus top-seed Victoria Azarenka successfully defended her Australian Open title against injury-hit Li Na of China 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 on Saturday, January 26. Li twisted her left ankle and banged her head on the court.
