After two weeks of action, the Australian Open comes to a conclusion Sunday when Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic square off in the men's final at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. Television coverage of the men's final is available on ESPN beginning at 3 a.m. ET. ESPN2 will replay the match at 9 a.m. ET.
Djokovic, the top seed in the field and world's top-ranked player, is playing for his third-consecutive Australian Open title and fourth Aussie championship overall. He struggled in a long five-set victory over Stanislas Wawrinka in the fourth round of this year's tournament, but otherwise has cruised to the final. In the semifinals, Djokovic defeated No. 4 David Ferrer in three sets, 6-2 6-2 6-1, to reach the finals.
Andy Murray, the tournament's third seed, did not drop a set before the semifinal. Murray then defeated Roger Federer in five sets Friday. Murray lost in the Aussie Open final to Djokovic in 2011. He also made the final in 2010, only to lose to Federer in three sets. He did win the final major of 2012 in a surprising U.S. Open triumph.
Also on Sunday, Lucie Hradecka and Frantisek Cermak will play Jarmila Gajdosova and Matthew Ebden in the mixed doubles final.
