The highlights from Melbourne Park.

Novak Djokovic claimed a piece of history for himself by winning a seventh Australian Open title with a crushing victory over Rafael Nadal.

The 31-year-old was tied with Roy Emerson and Roger Federer but the 6-3 6-2 6-3 triumph made him the most successful man ever at Melbourne Park.

Nadal had hoped to become the first man in the Open era to win all the slam titles at least twice but was comprehensively outplayed and lost for the fourth time in the decider at Melbourne Park.
