Untouchable Djokovic seals sixth Melbourne title over Murray

Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open for a record-levelling sixth time on Sunday as he hammered Andy Murray 6-1, 7-5, 7-6 (7-3) to claim the 11th grand slam singles title of his career.

The top seed made it into the record books as he pulled alongside Roy Emerson with a victory which took just under three hours.

Father-to-be Murray has now lost five Melbourne finals - four of them to Djokovic.

Djokovic has won 11 of his last 12 matches against his longtime rival, against whom he now stands 22-9. His only recent loss came in the final at 2015 Montreal.

Djokovic boasts a 8-6 lead over Murray in Tour-level finals. He stands 4-2 against the Scot in grand slam finals.
