Novak Djokovic wins sixth Australian Open final, as Andy Murray loses fifth



MELBOURNE, Australia — Top-ranked Novak Djokovic maintained his perfect streak in six Australian Open finals with a 6-1, 7-5, 7-6 (3) victory over Andy Murray on Sunday night, equaling Roy Emerson’s record for Australian titles

Murray, on the other hand, continued his unwanted streak, too, slumping to 0-5 in Australian Open finals.

“First of all I need to pay the respect to Andy,” Djokovic said. “Tough match, tough luck tonight.

“You’re a great champion, great friend, very committed to this sport. I’m sure in the future you’re going to have many opportunities.”
