Murray choking yet again. Djokovic is completely outplaying him.

Murray's getting nowhere near enough first serves in.

Choking? He wasn't even in front to begin with.

What a horribly overused word.

ok to clarify, this is his 3rd grand slam final and he's throwing it away again. it's very frustrating.

Well he can't be throwing it all away since he never had it in the first place.

But I agree, he's playing pretty badly. Match should've gone to 5 sets.

That's it. Murray really should've done better that but kudos to Djokovic.

I suppose my point is that he's playing nowhere near the level that we know he can play. See the US Open semi final against Nadal a couple of years ago for Murray at his best. Today he hasn't been aggressive enough, first serves haven't been good enough and he hasn't won the decisive points.

Having said all that Djokovic was excellent. Such a consistant performance. The length of his groundstrokes and his defensive lobs have been outstanding

Djokovic is just getting better and better. He got to basically EVERYTHING which I found astounding, among the best defensive players on tour now.

What a bloody frustrating match, we kept waiting for Murray to pick up but he just never managed to make his short outbursts of aggression into something more consistent. Djokovic on the other hand was consistently excellent, and deserves his win.

This.

Djokovic seemed to have stronger body language, more energy. He basically owned Murray.

Too bad.

It's starting to get bad for Murray. He seems to have a mental problem with playing Grand Slam finals.

Does Murray even enjoy playing tennis? When watching him, I can't tell.

It was the first time in a while that I preferred women's final to men's at Australian Open.

I don't think they have the rights to any other tennis. But I'm not 100% sure.
