Leander Paes congrats Novak Djokovic on fifth Australian Open title

New Delhi: Indian tennis ace Leander Paes on Wednesday congratulated Novak Djokovic for winning a fifth Australian Open title.

Paes, who himself was the winner in the mixed-doubles catergory, used his Twitter account to hail Nole.

The Serbian defeated Andy Murray in the final at the Rod Laver Arena in four sets - 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-0. While it was the fifth victory in as many finals for Djokovic, Murray lost his fourth final at the Australian Open.

Previously, Murray had lost twice to Djokovic - in 2011 and 2013 - and to Roger Federer in 2010.

Meanwhile, Paes along with Hingis, who won her first Grand Slam title since returning from retirement, won the Australian Open mixed doubles title with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over Kristina Mladenovic of France and Daniel Nestor of Canada.
