"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

Vika Azarenka - Australian Open 2013 Women's Champion

Reigning world number one, Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, retained her Australian Open title at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. She came back from a set down to beat the Chinese favorite Li Na who fell down twice to injure her ankle disrupting her momentum.

Vika Azarenka beat Li Na in a two hours and 40 minutes affair with the scoreline of 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Azarenka broke into tears after winning her consecutive Australian Open championship. 
Unfortunately, you have to go through some rough patches to achieve great things. That’s what makes it so special for me,Azarenka said. “I went through that, and I’m still able to kiss that beautiful trophy.

Li Na of China first tumbled to the court after twisting her left ankle in the fifth game of the second set and had it taped. 
On the first point after a 10-minute pause in the third set while fireworks boomed overhead from nearby Australia Day celebrations, Li fell over again and slammed the back of her head on the court. The 2011 French Open champion was treated and had another timeout before being allowed to resume the match.

Though Azarenka's victory was marred by a controversial medical timeout during her semifinals match against upcoming teenager Sloane Stephens, none could deny her hunger for victory today. Hoping for a non-controversial successful year for Vika :)
