Djokovic claims eighth Grand Slam
01 Feb 2015 16:04
Novak Djokovic reasserted his rule over the hard-courts of Melbourne Park on Sunday, grinding down Andy Murray 7-6(5) 6-7(4) 6-3 6-0 to win his fifth Australian Open title and eighth Grand Slam. The pair waged a fierce baseline duel for the opening two sets, but Djokovic won 12 of the last 13 games to close out an emphatic win and become the first man in the professional era to secure five titles at Melbourne Park. Top seed Djokovic sealed the victory on the second match-point, rushing to the net with a searing approach shot that Murray could only dump into the net. The steely-eyed Serb roared in triumph and approached his player's box to share the win with his team before tearing off his shirt and throwing it into the crowd. The loss was Murray's fourth in a final at Melbourne Park and third to Djokovic after the 2011 and 2013 finals.
