Novak Djokovic has won his record seventh Australian Open championship and a third consecutive Grand Slam title by beating Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 in the final at Rod Laver Arena.
The No. 1-ranked Djokovic raised his major trophy total to 15, behind only Roger Federer's 20 and Nadal's 17.
Djokovic improved to 7-0 in finals at Melbourne Park with a remarkably dominant and mistake-free performance against Nadal.
The win puts Djokovic out on his own, ahead of Roger Federer and Roy Emerson, who both won six Australian Open men’s singles titles.
Djokovic finished with 34 winners and only nine unforced errors.
