MELBOURNE - Novak Djokovic defeated Andy Murray 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 Sunday to win a second Australian Open title.
The third-seeded Serb Djokovic claimed victory in 2 hours 37 minutes. He dropped just one set in seven matches for his second Melbourne title, the first being in 2008.
Murray, seeded fifth, failed for the third time to become the first Briton to win a men’s singles title at the majors since Fred Perry at the 1936 US Open. Murray lost the 2008 US Open and 2010 Melbourne finals against Swiss Roger Federer, also in straight sets.
