An invincible Novak Djokovic landed an historic record seventh men's title at the Australian Open and third successive Grand Slam with a tennis masterclass to crush his great rival Rafael Nadal. The world No 1 obliterated Nadal in one of the great Grand Slam final performances, winning 6-3 6-2 6-3, finishing with 34 winners and only nine unforced errors on his way to a famous victory in two hours and four minutes.
Defending champion Rafael Nadal's only trace of a problem during his second-round victory at the US Open was a warning for letting the 25-second serve clock expire. And Nadal was convinced that even that wasn't really his fault. Nadal won 46 of 55 first-serve points and wore down Vasek Pospisil 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Wednesday night.
