Rob Barnett’s Sports Round Up

Andy Murray suffered the heartbreak of a third Grand Slam final defeat as he lost the Australian Open decider to Novak Djokovic in straight sets.

Murray, who also fell at the final hurdle in the 2008 the US Open and last year’s Australian Open – both times to Roger Federer, was defeated 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 by Djokovic in Melbourne.

It leaves Britain still without a male Grand Slam singles winner since Fred Perry won the US Open in 1936.

Blue Square Premier side Crawley Town earned a dream FA Cup tie with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Crawley became the first non-league side to reach the competition’s fifth round in 17 years thanks to victory at Torquay.

Three League One teams will play Premier League opponents: Leyton Orient host Arsenal, Sheffield Wednesday travel to Birmingham and Brighton play Stoke.

Another League One side, Notts County, could face top-flight Aston Villa after holding big-spending Manchester City to a draw.

England surrendered the one-day series to Australia with two games remaining after another disappointing display in coloured clothing.

Having kept the series alive on Australia Day, the tourists lost by 51 runs in Brisbane as Australia took a 4-1 series lead.

Finally, the Six Nations starts this weekend: Wales host England in Cardiff on Friday evening before Ireland take on Italy in Rome and defending champions France meet Scotland in Paris on Saturday.
