Djokovic and Murray to face off in the finals of the Miami Open 2015
The Scot has lost 6 matches in a row against the world number 1
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray both won their respective matches on Friday and will square off in Sunday’s final at the Miami Open 2015.
The third-seeded Murray handled eighth-seeded Czech slugger Tomas Berdych 6-4, 6-4 in the first semifinal on Day 10 at Crandon Park, while Djokovic claimed a 7-6 (7-3), 6-2 victory over American crowd favorite John Isner in the night match.Murray fell behind at love-30 serving in the final game of the match, but rallied and struck winners on the final three points. Berdych, who was a Miami finalist in 2010, is now 6-6 lifetime against Murray, including 0-2 this year.
The Scotsman has a home in nearby Miami and practices on the Key Biscayne courts.
“I’ve obviously played some good tennis here over the years,” Murray said. “The reason for that is because I’m extremely familiar with the conditions, with the surface, the way the court plays.”But Murray is 8-17 against Djokovic, who has won their past six meetings, including this year’s Australian Open final.
Djokovic aiming to lift the Miami Open title for the 5th time
Djokovic won the Key Biscayne title in 2007, 2011, 2012 and 2014. Serena Williams bids for her eighth Key Biscayne title Saturday against Carla Suarez Navarro. Murray won the championship in 2009 and 2013, and was the runner-up in 2012.
