Andy Murray crumbled to a third straight grand slam final defeat as Novak Djokovic swept away the Scot to win the Australian Open for the second time.
Djokovic won 6-4 6-2 6-3, in the most one sided grand slam final since Murray’s loss to Federer Last year.
Although he claims the pressure of being the first British man to win a major in over 70 years does not bother him, it’s now becoming clear to everyone that he has simply never been able to produce his best tennis in those final matches.
Murray has won huge matches, tense matches, matches with pressure and he has even lost those same kind of matches, but played to his best. He’s won big matches in grand slams, twice beating Rafael Nadal, he’s won master events beating the likes of Federer and Djokovic in the final and he’s come back in grand slam matches after being 2 sets down.
Those matches though would not have made history. Britain have not produced a grand slams winnere since Fred Perry won the US Open in 1936.
The wait goes on…
