The top seeds prevailed in the Men’s and Women’s singles at the 2015 Australian Open as Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic validated their advance billing as the best hard court players ever to step on the hard court. The finals featured determined efforts by challengers Maria Sharapova and Andy Murray, both of whom will doubtless suffer disappointment. Fortunately both losers will have plenty of money and good company to help them recover.

Novak Djokovic stunned 5th seed Andy Murray (7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-0) in an unforgettable display of power, racquet skill and grittiness. The world’s best hard court player demonstrated his superiority again wearing down feisty Scotsman Andy Murray just as he did his Swiss semifinal opponent and the 2014 defending champion, Stan Wawrinka, by closing the match with a love set. The first two sets of this match were some of the best tennis ever played on any hard court at any tournament.

After listless matches at the outset, the best female player to ever play the game threw her heaviest artillery at Russian Maria Sharapova, who could not match the champion’s serving prowess in the finals. The second best female player of the generation went down in two tough sets but may have solidified her challenger and fan favorite status with the noble effort.
