World No. 3 Serbian Novak Djokovic on Sunday beat world No. 5 Andy Murray 4-6, 2-6, 3-6 in the Australian men's single final to claim his second Grand Slam title.

The Serbian defeated Murray in three straight sets in two hours and 38 minutes, putting an end to Murray's dream to become the first to win a Grand Slam champion for the United Kingdom in 75 years.

With Sunday's victory, Djokovic now equals Gustavo Kuerten in making 12 Grand Slam appearances between winning his first and second Grand Slam titles.

Djokovic has won the 2008 Australian Open title, and he has been the first player representing Serbia to win a Grand Slam singles title, and the youngest player in the open era to have reached the semifinals of all four Grand Slam events.

Earlier on Friday, the Serbian defeated world No. 2 Roger Federer 7-6, 7-5, 6-4 in the semifinals of Australian Open.

Murray is playing a Grand Slam final for the third time in his career, the previous two finals were the 2008 U.S. Open and the 2010 Australian Open.
