2011 Australian Open Final: Murray vs. Djokovic Live Stream (Free Online Video)

Murray vs. Djokovic Live Stream: They say that all good things must come to an end, but a Grand Slam final without Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer is still hard to fathom.

Tonight, Britain’s Andy Murray [5] and Serbia’s Novak Djokovic [3] will face off in the men’s singles final of the 2011 Australian Open at Melbourne Park’s famed Rod Laver Arena. Djokovic beat defending champion Federer in the semifinals, while a visibly injured Rafa was ousted in the quarter-finals by compatriot David Ferrer.

Murray is undoubtedly the best active player not to have won a Grand Slam. The 23-year-old from Glasgow will be competing for a £3.4 million prize money, as well as a place in British sporting history. No British male has won a Major singles title since Fred Perry in 1936, and Andy is hoping to finally break that 75-year drought. The Scotsman, however, has come close on several occasions, reaching the finals of the 2008 U.S. Open and the last year’s Australian Open where he lost to Federer both times.

Unlike Murray, Djokovic has already broken his Grand Slam duck, winning in Melbourne in 2008 against France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The world No. 3, who led his country to their first Davis Cup victory in Belgrade last month, holds a slight edge (4-3) but Murray has prevailed in their last three meetings, the most recent at the Sony Ericsson Open in April last year.

Prediction: I’m going for Andy to beat Novak. But if the match reaches five sets, I’ll give an advantage to the Serbian.

The game starts at 7:30 PM Melbourne time.

UPDATE: Novak Djokovic beat Andy Murray 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 in the men’s single final of the 2011 Australian Open to claim his second Grand Slam crown.
