Novak Djokovic joked Roy Emerson was "p*****" to lose his record for most Australian Open titles.

The Serbian star, 31, usurped Emerson and Roger Federer with his seventh Melbourne crown courtesy of a 6-3 6-2 6-3 thrashing of Rafael Nadal in the final on Sunday.

Djokovic was pictured with Australian greats Rod Laver, Frank Sedgman, Ken Rosewall and Emerson after his stunning victory.

"Mr Emerson said he's p***** with me because I broke his record," a smiling Djokovic told a news conference.

"I'll definitely cherish that forever."
