Djokovic Versus Murray For Australian Open Title

Jan 30, 2015

So, who will play the final match of the 2015 Australian Open has been decided and it will be between world No.1 Novak Djokovic and the current world No.6 Andy Murray, it wasn’t that long ago that Murray was considered as among the big four in men’s tennis, with his impresive run to the men’s singles final in Melbourne during the past fortnight, the 27 year old Scot will soon make a return to the top quartet in men’s tennis and once again be considered one of the big four in the game, he will face off against his long-time Serbian friend and rival Djokovic in the championship decider, the two men have squared off 23 times in their respective career with Djokovic holding a distinct 15-8 advantage currently over Murray, it’s interesting to note that Murray’s two previous Grand Slam victories both came against the Serb, his first in the US Open final of 2012 and his second at Wimbledon in 2013, Novak and Andy have both shown glimpses of their best form on Rod Laver Arena but the champion will be the guy who can summon up their “A” game when it is needed the most.

Djokovic has been the dominant figure in men’s tennis since the end of last season, winning the Paris Masters in Bercy in November before going on to once again be crowned the end of season ¬†ATP world No.1 at the ATP World Tour Finals in London, Murray appears to be over his back issue’s from late 2013 and he now seems poised to make a return to the top echelon of the game, his recovery will no doubt be complete if he wins his 3rd Grand Slam titlebut he will have to get past the man that most tennis pundits predicted would win the title this year in Melbourne, Djokovic is a four-time former champion in Melbourne and is looking to continue writing his own name into the history books in Australia, the 27 year old Serb will claim his 8th career Grand Slam title if he is successful in Melbourne on Sunday evening but he will face a rejuvenated Murray in the title decider.

Who is your money on folks, does Djokovic start an overwhelming favourite in this one or has Murray shown enough form in Melbourne to suggest he can grab himself another GS title, both men play similar games so it could be a long night at the office for both of them and the fans watching around the world, the prize at the end of it all though for Nole and Andy, is that the winner will be crowned Australian Open champion 2015.
