Miami Open: Murray Against Djokovic In Final
BRITAIN’S Andy Murray will face world number one Novak Djokovic in the final of the Miami Open today.
Third seed Murray beat Czech eighth seed Tomas Berdych 6-4 6-4 to reach the final for a fourth time.
The 27-year-old Scot, who reached 500 career wins this week, won the title in 2009 and 2013.
Defending champion Djokovic overcame USA’s John Isner 7-6 (7-3) 6-2 to set up a meeting with Murray, whom he beat in Indian Wells last week.
Murray’s convincing victory, in which he broke Berdych’s serve four times, took his career record against him to 6-6.
“I did most things well; there’s not a lot I could complain about,” said Murray.
“My second serve was much better in the second set. I served well on the big points and got a lot of free points behind my serve.
“I’ve played well this week, much better than I did at Indian Wells.”
The match was a repeat of the Australian Open clash in January, which Murray won in four tense sets as he went up against Berdych and former coach Dani Vallverdu.
There was another familiar face in the Berdych box in Miami after fitness coach Jez Green recently began working with the Czech, having left Murray’s team along with Vallverdu last November.
