Novak Djokovic didn't rip his shirt off after winning this year's Australian Open final. He just did a little dance after a 3-hour and 40-minute match against Andy Murray.
The Serbian player who retains his no.1 world ranking became the first man in the Open era to win three consecutive Australian titles when he beat Murray 6-7, 7-6, 6-3, 6-2.
Born just a week apart in May 1987, both players are friends since their early junior playing days.
So close yet so far
Murray who won his first Grand Slam at the US Open last year is yet to make a breakthrough in Australia after losing a third final here in the last four years.
Djokovic has now won 6 Grand Slam titles in total.
