Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic sealed his 15th Grand Slam by beating Rafael Nadal in the final of the Australian Open Sunday.
A repeat of the 2012 final that saw both of the legends of the modern era fight it out for a little less than six hours, the game proved to be the first time Nadal has ever lose a final in straight sets.

An invincible Djokovic finished the game in a little more than 2 hours, winning the three sets 6-2, 6-3 And 6-2.
This was Djokovic’s third consecutive Grand Slam Title win as Nadal again failed to beat the Serbian on the hard court, keeping a rather unenvious streak going since they met in 2013.
This was Djoker’s seventh Melbourne title. And it helped him overtake Roy Emerson and Roger Federer, who have won the title 6 times each.
