Australian Open: Djokovic wins eighth Grand Slam title

  • Serbia’s Novak Djokovic was the deserving winner at the Australian Open, winning his fifth title in Melbourne after beating Britain’s Andy Murray in four sets on Sunday.

    The world number one took three hours 39 minutes to overcome the Scot 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (4-7) 6-3 6-0, to win his eighth Grand Slam crown.

    Congratulating the champion, the 27-year-old Murray said Djokovic, who seemed to be troubled by an ankle problem early on, had a “fantastic record and [a] thoroughly deserved [one]”.
