MELBOURNE, Australia — Andy Murray has leveled the Australian Open singles final at 1-1, winning the second set 7-6 (4) after Novak Djokovic won the first 7-6 (5).
Djokovic saved a set point in the 10th game and Murray saved three break points in the 11th before it went to the tiebreaker. Sixth-seeded Murray dominated the breaker to lead 6-2, securing four set points before clinching it on Djokovic's serve.
The second set was delayed for about five minutes after the seventh game when a court invader protesting Australia's refugee policies was removed by security after stepping on to the court. Other spectators in the stadium unfurled a political banner.
Djokovic hasn't lost in four finals at Melbourne Park, while Murray has been runner-up three times, twice to Djokovic in 2011 and 2013.
