MELBOURNE, Australia — Novak Djokovic beat Andy Murray 6-7 (2), 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-2 in Sunday’s final to become the first man in the Open era to win three consecutive Australian Open titles.

After two sets without a service break, top-ranked Djokovic broke Murray in the eighth game of the third set to seize momentum in the match.

It was Djokovic’s sixth major title and his fourth at Melbourne Park, where he is unbeaten in 21 matches.
