Miami F: Murray vs Djokovic

Quote

So, we have the number 1 seed playing Andy, who got a walkover to the final.

Andy has a great record in Master's finals but not so much against Nole, but did beat him in their most recent meeting.

Final is on Sunday, 1 pm local time, which I think is 6 pm UK time and 5 am for me Very Happy

H2H to follow.

It's going to be an excellent match, Andy has played great against Djokovic in the 4 previous meetings.

Cheer Bev.. The Deli on the Corner looks great btw!
OK.. back to business..

The Djokernator has some serious chinks in his armour.

Based on what I saw with Nole/Monaco match tonight, I want Andy to take advantage of Nole's forehand which went awol .... also send some weak balls right up the middle of the court too bcos it appreared to me that Nole is looking for 'clever' balls and is confused by 'weak.'

Having watched the Monaco match, which was a curious re-run of the Ferrer one, it was glaringly obvious (a) that Djokovic couldn't carry the high level of play he showed in the first set of both into the second, especially in the Monaco match, and (b) that he seemed to get rattled easily (nervousness at having yet another title to defend perhaps?) when his opponents, Ferrer in particular, started pushing him in the second set while his own game was slipping.  We were also seeing occasional glimpses of negative body-language from him, something which was absent last year.

Against Monaco he managed only one ace in the entire match, and that was in the 12th game of the 2nd set, but served 3 DFs.  In the second set his forehand was misfiring badly and the number of UEs started to rise alarmingly.  Monaco's one great failing was his inability to capitalise on BPs, twice letting the score go from 0-40 to deuce.  Had things been otherwise a decider would have beckoned.

I cannot believe the Monaco match did much for Djokovic's confidence going into the final, but nothing can be taken for granted and Andy will have to play his A game right from the start.  If he can win the first set I believe he has a very good chance of lifting the title.

Andy played very well in their last 4 meetings, indeed! The ones Novak won were ones that Andy almost won too :x If he comes out calm and firing like he did in Dubai, I've no doubt he'll win the title.

I think the Djoker is feeling all the pressure not just from defending his titles but living up to the quality he set up for himself last year--something we all know he probably won't do again--because for sure fans are expecting him to dominate this year even if it wasn't as strong as last year's.

It'll be all down to Andy's first serve. It's better than Nole's and, if it's firing, I'm sure he will win. However, if it's not, and we'll know pretty quickly, he'll lose.
If it's a nasty windy day and they're both serving badly.....well, who knows Think
