Defending champion Novak Djokovic successfully defended his title, defeating Andy Murray in the final, 6-1, 7-5, 7-6(7-3) to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2016 Australian Open. It was Djokovic's record-equaling sixth Australian Open men's singles title (tying Roy Emerson) and eleventh Grand Slam title overall. This was a rematch of the previous year's final, and the fourth Australian Open final between the pair. [1][2] Murray became the second man in the Open Era (after Ivan Lendl) to lose five major finals at the same event, and is the only one to have the distinction without having won the title.

Rafael Nadal was attempting to become the first man in the Open Era to achieve a double Career Grand Slam, but he lost to Fernando Verdasco in the first round, marking his first major hardcourt first round loss in his career.

Australian Lleyton Hewitt, a 2005 finalist, two-time major champion and former world No. 1, played his last professional singles match at this event. He lost to David Ferrer in the second round.[3]
