Interesting dynamic in Murray-Djokovic
The first time I watched these two play was Miami semi 2007. Djokovic won 6-1, 6-0 and Murray was so awful. He had no weapons to hurt Djokovic and I thought: why are people calling him a talent at all? he will struggle in the top 10...
late 2008 - early 2009
Three straight-set wins in a row for Murray. Especially telling was the Miami final 2009. Murray was sharp, Djokovic was sluggish, inert, apathetic. I thought: Djokovic has reached his full potential and Murray has overtaken him for good
The pair did't play each other in 2010
Djokovic completely destroys Murray in the Aus final. Again, Murray looks like he has no weapons, no power, and his movement is worse than Djokovic's
Finally, both are playing well in the same year. Aus semi was great quality, as was the Olympics semi. They split the other two matches this year: Dubai semi and Miami final
What to expect of the USO final? Great battle or one of the earlier lop-sided matches?
