MNA Sports Desk: Novak Djokovic won a record seventh Australian Open title and a third successive Grand Slam as he swept aside Rafael Nadal in Melbourne.
The Serb broke the Spaniard’s serve five times – and was rarely troubled on his own – in a 6-3 6-2 6-3 victory to clinch his 15th Grand Slam.
Second seed Nadal, 32, looked rattled by the world number one’s intensity and made 28 unforced errors, reports BBC.
Djokovic, 31, won in two hours and four minutes to move clear of six-time men’s winners Roy Emerson and Roger Federer.
A forehand winner down the line brought up two championship points, Djokovic taking the second when Nadal clubbed a backhand long.
Djokovic fell to his knees after sealing another triumph on Rod Laver Arena, smacking the court with both hands and screaming towards the sky.
