MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA (AP) - Novak Djokovic won his second Australian Open title, breezing past Andy Murray 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 on Sunday to extend Britain’s near 75-year drought in men’s singles Grand Slams.

Djokovic also won the 2008 Australian title. Murray has lost three Grand Slam finals, also falling to Roger Federer in the 2008 U.S. Open and 2010 Australian Open.

The Scot hasn’t won a set in a Grand Slam final. Last year, Murray cried after his loss to Federer. They weren’t immediately visible this year, but the hurt may have been just as bad after he lost seven straight games through the end of the first set and into the second and never appeared to be in the match.
