Djokovic Revels In Historic Treble

Novak Djokovic says he’s blown away by creating history and becoming a three-time Australian Open champion after defeating Andy Murray in the final on Sunday.

The Serbian defeated the Scot 6-7 (2-7), 7-6 (7-3), 6-3, 6-2 to clinch his third successive Australian Open crown and he said it was great to be among some of the greats of tennis.

“Just seeing the trophy and reading the names of the winners in the last 50, 100 years, it’s incredible,” Djokovic said.

“To be also mentioned in the history aspect, and winning three in a row, it’s a huge achievement.”

Djokovic had dropped the first set and struggled at times in the second, which were gruelling contests, before finally triumphing comfortably in the final two sets.

“I didn’t expect an easy match. You never get the grand slam trophy in an easy way. You have to earn it. I’m very glad that I’m sitting next to it (trophy) now,” he said.

“When you play one of your biggest rivals and somebody that is in the top form in finals of a grand slam, there is a lot to play for.

“The first two sets went for I think two hours 20 minutes. I think that says enough about the intensity of the match.

“I knew that it was going to be physically very demanding, a lot of long rallies, so I needed to hang in there.”
