Novak Djokovic won his second Australian Open title,breezing past Andy Murray 6-4,6-2,6-3 Sunday to extend Britain’s near 75-year drought in men’s singles Grand Slams.
Murray has now been runner-up in three Grand Slam finals losing to Roger Federer at both the 2008 U.S. Open and the 2010 Australian Open before his third disappointment Sunday which enabled Djokovic to add to his 2008 Australian title.
The Scotsman has not won a set in a Grand Slam final. Last year,Murray had tears after his loss to Federer. They weren’t immediately visible this year,but the hurt may have been just has bad after he lost seven straight games through the end of the first set and into the second and never appeared to be in the match.
