Andy Murray will be out for revenge when he faces Novak Djokovic for the right to face Rafael Nadal in Sunday’s Australian Open final. The Scot was denied a maiden Grand Slam title by Djokovic twelve months ago when suffering a straight sets defeat to him in the final. That was the first of three meetings between the pair, with Djokovic winning the first two before Murray defeated the Serbian in the Masters event in Cincinnati at their most recent clash. Overall, Djokovic has a 6-4 career advantage over the world number four.
Djokovic has been imperious in the tournament so far, dropping just ten games in the first three rounds before dropping a set in the fourth round against home crowd favourite Lleyton Hewitt. Normal service was resumed in the quarter finals, with the world number one recording a straight sets win over fifth seed David Ferrer.
After suffering a scare in the first round when losing the opening set 6-4 to young American Ryan Harrison, it has been plain sailing for Murray. He hasn’t dropped another set and appears to be getting better with each match that he plays.
