Re: WWW WTF RR: [1] Djokovic vs. [3] Murray

If it was just about the tennis would pick Murray, but Djokovic is so mentally tough.

Murray should have won the last match, but Djokovic handled the match points
(all 5) so much better. Feeling too close to call.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Re: WWW WTF RR: [1] Djokovic vs. [3] Murray

Djokovic doesn't seem quite right and has some obvious distractions. All the same I wouldn't be surprised if he won, tough as he is, but it tips the balance towards Murray for me.

Re: WWW WTF RR: [1] Djokovic vs. [3] Murray

From his first performance, one has to surmise Mr. Djokovic's mind/body is not really in this tournament. Almost any other player in this tournament than mentally fried Mr. Tsonga would have likely bageled or breadsticked Nole in the first set. He hasn't been this bad since Mr. Federer iced him in Cincinnati. It's obvious that he would rather be back home tending his father. Haters that don't understand that don't understand the Serbian culture.

Even with all this against him, Nole managed to lift his level just enough to get past Jo in the first set and cruise through the second.

If he plays anywhere near this level against Mr. Murray, Novak will be well beaten by Andy, and for that matter, Mr. Berdych later.
If he somehow manages to put everything to one side, then it should be a good match.

I'm having a difficult time trying to get the HTH stats on indoor matches between these two, but from memory I believe they have very few or none. It really doesn't matter. It will come down to whose head is into this match and tournament more.

Respectfully,

They played one indoor match in Madrid, 2006. Nole won in 3 sets.

Poll results pretty much say it all. Hopefully we just get a good match.

Re: WWW WTF RR: [1] Djokovic vs. [3] Murray

Murray in 2, he's a better indoor player. I think Murray has gotten past the times when he would choke in front of his home crowd when playing against the top 4.

Re: WWW WTF RR: [1] Djokovic vs. [3] Murray

Re: WWW WTF RR: [1] Djokovic vs. [3] Murray

I hope Nole, but with these two you never know. It depends on their form on the day. They're very equal gamewise, though Nole is slightly better in every regard.



Novak Djokovic nº1!

The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
