Murray was no push over, even went toe-to-toe in the second set and forced a tie-break in the third set, but #Djokovic stayed determined and held on! #Djokovic (almost) successfully completed the calendar slam (winning all four majors) in 2015, and still is just getting better and better; having former German star tennis baller Boris Becker as your coach doesn’t hurt.
