Djokovic wins 6th Australian Open title

Djokovic wins 6th Australian Open title

Novak Djokovic defeated Andy Murray 6-1 7-5 7-6(3) to win his sixth Australian Open title, the fourth time he has taken down the Scot in the Melbourne Park final.

Nole equals Roy Emerson’s Australian Open haul and closes to within six majors of Roger Federer’s record.

“I have to say I’m extremely honoured to be mentioned alongside the legends of our sport, like Rod Laver. Thank you Mr Laver for coming along tonight and making this match special,” Djokovic said. “Mr Roy Emerson, who is not here tonight, it’s a great privilege to match the record of one of the greatest players to have played this game.”

The loss marks the fifth time Murray had fallen in the Australian Open decider.

Australian Open Champion Novak DJokovic Final Interview

Australian Open Champion Novak DJokovic Final Interview

Novak Djokovic def Andy Murray 6-1 7-5 7-6(3)

Q. What do you think made the difference tonight against Andy?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, I think I started the match very well, as I started in semifinals versus Roger, with not many things I've done wrong. Actually I was very aggressive and just played the way I wanted to play against him, and executed the game plan perfectly for a set and a half.

I made a break in the second. I felt he was pretty neutral from the back of the court and was allowing me to take a charge and control over the rallies. I had more time.

Then he started serving better. He came back to the match. The second set was decided in a few points, as it was the third. I thought I maybe could have done better in my service games when I was up a break both sets, second and third, but credit to him for fighting and showing why he's one of the best in the world.

Novak Djokovic def Andy Murray 6-1 7-5 7-6(3)

Q. Can you give us your verdict on the match?
ANDY MURRAY: I mean, basically I saw some of the stats just at the end of the match. He won 25 more points than me, 26 more points. I had 25 or 26 more unforced errors.

You know, I think I didn't hit my forehand particularly well at the beginning of the match. I started to hit it better in the third set. But, yeah, that was it.

Q. The level of tennis in the second and third sets was pretty high, judging by your standards?
ANDY MURRAY: Yeah, I think so. I mean, the end of the second set, obviously the game I lost 40-Love up, was a tough one.

Australian Open Novak Djokovic pre-final press conference

Australian Open Novak Djokovic pre-final press conference

Q. What more can you say? (Laughter.)
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: (Laughter.) That's a good question, because I don't know how many questions I can really get in this pre-final press conference except one, that I'm playing Andy Murray in another final, which of course I'm very excited about.

And also it's a possibility for me to make history, which is of course another great imperative for me for tomorrow's match. These are the kind of matches that you work for. These are the kind of occasions that define you as a tennis player. I'll try to do my best obviously and get my hands on that trophy again.

Q. Did you watch Andy's match yesterday against Raonic? What do you think of how he's playing right now?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I have watched only last set, a little bit of the last set when Milos was already not moving that great. But I heard that it was a great match and that Milos played well in three sets and then he physically couldn't really push Andy until the end.

Andy Murray semifinal Interview Australian Open 2016

Andy Murray def Milos Raonic 4-6 7-5 6-7(4) 6-4 6-2

Q. Very solid match. You only lost the first serve and never any more. Was that something important?
ANDY MURRAY: Yeah, for sure. When you play against someone who, you know, is tough to break like Milos, you need to protect your own serve to put pressure on them.

I think at the end of the fourth set I did very well. I won some of the breakpoints I faced. I came up with some good second serves. You know, changed the position of the second serves on a few points. Served close to the lines. That was big.

But, yeah, against anyone, is one of the most important shots, if not the most important, especially tonight.

Q. Can you tell us what the injury was and when you first felt it?
MILOS RAONIC: Just a difficulty to push off my leg with my adductor midway through the third set. That's what it was.

Q. Must be a very unpleasant way to lose when you're playing so well.
MILOS RAONIC: Yeah, it's unfortunate. Probably the most heartbroken I felt on court, but that's what it is.

Q. Have you had this before?
MILOS RAONIC: I struggled with it a little bit in Brisbane, but it was not an issue so far in Melbourne.

Novak Djokovic Australian Open Semifinals Press Conference


Novak Djokovic def Roger Federer 6-1 6-2 3-6 6-3

Q. Did you ever play a better first set?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, I've had matches where I've played similar tennis. But I think against Roger, these first two sets have been probably the best two sets I've played against him overall I think throughout my career.

I've had some moments against him in sets where I've played on a high level, but this was, yeah, I think a different level than from before. I'm just very, very pleased that I was able to perform the way I did from the very beginning till the end.

Q. Does that mean you weren't fazed when he got into it in the third set?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I mean, of course, after two sets, you know, you start to think the player of Roger's caliber will start playing better, will change few things. I think he started raising his first-serve percentage. He used his slice, short slice, very well, and court positioning. He started to be more aggressive.

Novak Djokovic def Roger Federer 6-1 6-2 3-6 6-3

Q. Was it disappointing that after you took the third set that you had to stop for the roof closing?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, yeah. I mean, maybe. But then again, I don't think that's where the match played out, to be quite honest. The match was in a tough spot at that point anyway.

But maybe with momentum it could have helped. I don't think so. We were told beforehand that this could happen. It's fine, you know.

Q. You played him many times. How good was he in those first two sets?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, I've seen Novak play this well before. It's tough when it's from the start because obviously you got to try to stop the bleeding at some point, you know. Because he returns very well, like Andre Agassi. He can get one or two sets all of a sudden. Those sets run away very quickly.

Andy Murray def David Ferrer 6-3 6-7(5) 6-2 6-3

Q. How much of a difference did it make there when the roof closed?
ANDY MURRAY: I think it changed things a little bit. Obviously, you know, I had chances in the second set. Obviously at 4-All I had 15-40 in that game, and then a couple shots in the tiebreak that I could have done better with.

You know, when the roof closed, I was obviously up a break in the third and was feeling good. That first game after the delay was a very important. I saved a couple of break points, but then actually played a good game. So it was nice to get through that game.

Then I felt like started to play better as the match went on.

Milos Raonic def Gael Monfils 6-3 3-6 6-3 6-4

Q. Congratulations. How did you feel about that match?
MILOS RAONIC: I felt good. You know, I did the things well. Even in that second set before I got broken I created some opportunities. He came up with some big serves. I don't know if it was two or three opportunities that I had. I had another opportunity later in that set.

I was creating a bunch of chances for myself. I made good use of a few of them. I then continued to make the most of those little leads.

Q. How did you feel in a match like that just being back, second time back in a big match on Rod Laver against a guy maybe you're expected to beat?
MILOS RAONIC: I felt good, you know, especially that I took care of the things I need to take care of. I was dictating I felt most of the time. I was hitting my shots well. I was quite efficient off the baseline. When I had the chance, I came forward. Closed shots off there.

Andy Murray def David Ferrer 6-3 6-7(5) 6-2 6-3

Q. What are your thoughts on the match?
DAVID FERRER: It was a good match. It was a lot of rallies. It was tough.

In the third set, the first games, it was tough but it was close. He was better than me playing very aggressive with his backhand.

And in the fourth set when I broke him with 2-0 for 2-All, well, in the game 4-3 or 4-2 I didn't -- I lost a little bit the concentration. It was the key.
