The Australian Open must be Novak Djokovic’s favorite Grand Slam tournament.
The No. 1 men’s tennis player beat Andy Murray in straight sets (6-1, 7-5, 7-6 (7-3)) Sunday to earn his sixth title in Melbourne, tying Roy Emerson’s record for most Australian Open wins. The win also represents Djokovic’s 11th Grand Slam victory.
The No. 2 Murray probably doesn’t have the same feelings as Djokovic about the Australian Open, as he’s now lost all five finals he’s been in, four of them coming against the 28-year-old Serbian native. But Murray has other business to attend to, as his wife is due to give birth any day now.
As for Djokovic, the champion will head to the French Open on May 22 in search of his first title at Roland Garros. Djokovic has fallen just short of the career Grand Slam three times, losing in the French Open finals three of the last four years.
