For sure, if Murray had taken just one of those break points in the first game of the second set when he was 0-40 up this could be a very different match up. As it stands, Djokovic is just immoveable, he's not giving away anything.

Well deserved win for Djokovic, he played a great final, especially the last two sets. He is the number one player in the world, and proved it here. Look for him to have another big year.

Really great tournament for Murray too. He just missed out, he had his chances early in the second set but couldn't quite grab them. He'll keep improving, and hopefully he can build on this final, and have a great clay court season (finally) in a couple of months. He looked a little sluggish at times, grabbing the hamstring, the blisters etc. but Djokovic played just perfect in the last two sets.

The Djokovic/Murray rivalry is in full flight now, expect many more finals between the two this year.

Nole proving his class. US Open was a fluke

The way Djokovic is playing atm, he'd be very, very good odds at getting at least 3 slams this year. Just never can tell with Wimbledon though, nor on the Paris clay with Raffa wanting to make amends.

Well that's 5 Finals losses with only 1 win. Murray must feel like shit. Sort of like Roddick

^ for real? Maybe if he hadn't won the Olympics and US Open last year.

Looked low on steam after the 2nd set. Difference in Semi's made a difference. Djokovic was too good regardless though. No shame in hanging with Djokovic for the most part of a slam final after going 5 sets with Federer.

Congrats to Djokovic, he is now the only one who has won 3 consecutive Australian Opens in the Open Era, that's pretty impressive.

This is now Djokovic's 3rd consecutive win against Murray.

Using the semis an excuse is asinine given how Murray had walked into the semis barely challenged. Nole survived the epic against Wawrinka and had enough to get through. Murray just wasn't good enough when push came to shove.

And last year Djokovic beat Murray in 4 hours and 50 minutes in the semis and then went on to beat Nadal in the final after 6 hours.
