The Serbian ace dominated his Scot opponent in all the segments of the game to emerge triumphant and clinch his second Australian Open title in one of most spectacular fashions. The large number of spectators gathered at the Rod Laver Arena gave a thundering applause at every move of the 23-year-old Serb as he went on to seal the victory.

Novak Djokovic was able to make a comeback from two break serves during the third set to take full control of the game and dominate his Scot opponent while the Serbian ace went to register the championship in straight sets. It took the Serbian player two hours and 37 minutes to defeat Andy Murray at Sunday’s Australian Open finals and materialize his dream of winning the championship for the second time.
