"Winning it three in a row, it's incredible," Djokovic said after his 6-7 (2), 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-2 victory over his friend Murray. "It's very thrilling. I'm full of joy right now. It's going to give me a lot of confidence for the rest of the season, that's for sure."

Nine other men had won consecutive Australian titles in the Open era, but none three straight years. One of them was Andre Agassi, who presented Djokovic with the trophy.

Serbian Djokovic also captured the Aussie Open title in 2008, which means four of his six career major titles have come Down Under.

This year seems to be promising for Djokovic but with Nadal coming back soon, its going to be a four-some  (Nadal, Djokovic, Murray and the FedEx) race for the rest of the grandslams this year. Gonna be mouthwatering :D
