Djokovic cruises to fifth Australian Open title

Novak Djokovic reasserted his rule over the hard-courts of Melbourne Park, grinding down Andy Murray 7-6, 6-7, 6-3, 6-0 to win his fifth Australian Open title.

The pair waged a fierce baseline duel for the opening two sets, but Djokovic won 12 of the last 13 games to close out an emphatic win and become the first man in the professional era to secure five titles at Melbourne Park.

The loss was Murray's fourth in a final at Melbourne Park and third to Djokovic after the 2011 and 2013 finals.
