Novak Djokovic has defeated Andy Murray to clinch his sixth Australian Open championship title and also his 11th Grand Slam.

The world number one won a thrilling final 6-1, 7-5, 7-6 (7-3).

Murray fought hard after a wretched start but ultimately could not cling on to the pace set by Djokovic, who has suffered just one defeat in six years on Rod Laver Arena.

Second seed Murray, 28, has now lost all five Australian Open finals he has played, four of them against Djokovic.

“I feel like I’ve been here before. Congrats Novak. Six Australian Opens is an incredible feat. The last year has been incredible. Good job.”

Murray paid respect to ex-players watching, saying: “To all of the ex-players watching, thank you for coming. It makes it extra special playing in front of you.”

Djokovic did the same to Murray for another great tournament.

“Tough final, tough luck, Andy you are a great champion and friend. I’m sure you’ll have more opportunities to fight for this trophy,” he said.

“Thank you to my team. A Grand Slam is unique, we all breathe as one, we live each hour with a purpose.”

Djokovic has now equalled Australia’s Roy Emerson’s record of six Autralian Open.
