Roger Federer is the Australian Open 2010 men’s singles champion

World No. 1 Roger Federer is the Australian Open 2010 men’s singles champion, claiming his 16th Grand Slam title with a straight-sets victory over Andy Murray.
The top-seed’s ability to seize on vital opportunities proved to be the difference against the 22-year-old, as he fought off a late challenge to win the match 6-3 6-4 7-6(11) in two hours and 41 minutes before a capacity crowd at Rod Laver Arena on Sunday night.
Murray fought bravely against his more experienced opponent, but lacked the composure that aided Federer on the crucial points to eventually succumb to the Swiss.
The victory marks the fourth time Federer has won the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup at Melbourne Park, his triumph on Sunday adding to victories in 2004, 2006 and 2007.
