Australian Open Final Men’s Single – Djokovic Wins The Title

Novak Djokovic of Serbia wins the singles title in the prestigious Australian Open on the 30th of January (Sunday) at the Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Australia. This is the second time he has won the Australian Open, the first was in 2008.

The final was between Djokovic and Andy Murray of Scotland. Andy Murray has had quite a few opportunities in the last couple of years to win grand slam titles, but unfortunately hasn’t been able to grab even one. He lost very convincingly to Djokovic and there was no question in anyone’s mind who was the well deserving champion of the day.

Djokovic won in straight sets, 6–4, 6–2, 6–3, Andy Murray was just no match for him. Anybody who saw the entire match would know how brilliant Djokovic’s movements were; he played magnificently and didn’t let the nerves get the better of him. It was truly pleasing to see a final with a different and unexpected pair that showed a preview of the future of tennis which Djokovic undoubtedly is. He has immense talent and a humbling personality, the calibre in tennis just keeps getting better and better.

For any sport, holding your nerve is an important attribute to have, sometimes it comes naturally and sometimes it is acquired with time and experience. Djokovic admitted later on that the mental battle was won by him which is why he won the match. He said ‘You badly want to win it. You’re thinking too much. You’re worrying too much in your head; it’s a mental battle, definitely.’

Andy Murray has a lot of thinking to do when he goes back home; choking so many times must have made him want to dissect him game. However after the match he said that he will go back home and relax for a while. Apparently the last time he lost the title he went back in and started practicing immediately but not wholeheartedly, in a way, he was just going through the motions. This time he wants to take a little break spending time with his family and his girlfriend and then think about playing. ‘I’ll see what I do from here, I might not play for a few months, I might feel like playing in a week’s time,’ he said.

Whatever he decides to do his fans will still be waiting, as both Murray and Djokovic are young and have an extremely bright career ahead of them. It is possible that we will witness Murray-Djokovic finals in the future, almost as many times as a Nadal-Federer final.
