Novak Djokovic leads Andy Murray 2-1 in sets at the Australian Open final after winning the third 6-3.

Murray appeared to be in the ascendancy after breaking in the opening game of the set and holding immediately afterwards, but Djokovic moved through the gears to claim the next three games and race into a 3-2 lead.

He forced three breaks points at 4-3 on the Murray serve and the Scot showed his frustration by smashing his racket on the ground when the Serbian won the second of those.

Djokovic needed just one of his three set points to hold serve and give himself the upper hand at Melbourne Park.
