Agony for Andy: Murray loses Australian Open final to Djokovic by three sets to one
Andy Murray's golden dream of history-making double grand slam titles is over after a four set loss to Serbia's Novak Djokovic.
The world number one rallied from a first set defeat to overcome the Briton in the Australian Open. Murray earlier came through some nervy moments to claim the first set of his Australian Open final against Djokovic in a tie-break.
But Djokovic put the match back to level in the second set and then triumphed in the third and fourth.
The champions were initially evenly-matched, steadily trading blows in a series of long rallies, but Murray began to falter immediately after the Serbian drew level.
