    An inspired Novak Djokovic outplayed Rafa Nadal to win the Wimbledon title with an emphatic 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3 victory in the final on Sunday.

    Rafael Nadal breezed into the Australian Open third round with a 6-0 6-2 6-2 demolition of Frenchman Florent Serra on Wednesday. The world number two won the first eight games with his usual barrage of groundstrokes and although Serra competed more effectively in the second and third sets, he never threatened to halt the Spaniard's progress.
