2016 Australian Open – Men's Singles

Novak Djokovic successfully defended his title, defeating Andy Murray in the final, 6–1, 7–5, 7–6(7–3) to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2016 Australian Open. This was a rematch of the previous year's final, and the fourth Australian Open final between the pair. Djokovic also equaled Roy Emerson's all-time men's record of six Australian Open singles titles. [1][2] Murray also became the second man in the Open Era (after Ivan Lendl) to lose five Grand Slam finals at one event, and is the only one to have the distinction without having won the title.
