Andy's still number 1 isn't he.

Was a very good match, new year new start. Last year's run doesn't matter now. Andy has every chance in the world at Melbourne though this year he is neck to neck with. Novak now I feel.

Yep. He should remain so for a while if he does well in Australia.

  True, but you called it over before it was, which is a real loser mentality.

Agreed. Boogers thinks it's pretty cool to predict the outcome of the match (always when Andy is about to lose) in the most distasteful way.

not particularly when they both beat everyone else with regularity, even more so in australia.
Well joker was lucky to be in final today. It was only Vadascos massive choke , could happen to him in a GS for sure . Andy has played much more consistently than joker recently.

I wouldn't be terribly surprised to see one or the other get knocked out before the final. Stan vs Djokovic in a semi, for example.

hey, great if djokovic goes down. but he's looking better. if he brings the level he brought today he will win it.

i think murray will be less prone to upset though. i struggle to see anyone bar djokovic beating him at the moment. raonic and wawrinka would both have some chance but i'd still take him quite heavily over them.

As a positive he has no streak to keep up now.
Andy will look at this and make changes for the next time!
Come on Andy

I think they are pretty even and even if I see the same result throughout the year I will watch those two play with that sort of intensity and entertaining tennis in multiple finals .

As an Andy fan it's a shame he lost but both played fairly evenly, both with a few dips. Andy needs to serve better if he wants a different result next time they meet.
Andy had 8 aces to Novaks 2....

Djokovic is simply more consistent whereas Andy tends to throw in more than one bad service game. But it was not a thrashing as we have too often seen it. However, once more Djokovic has proved himself an unlikeable guy.

Today showed us there is nothing between them in ability. But Andy will have Lendl at AO. Much needed.

As long as Andy reaches the SF in Melbourne he'll probably stay number 1 until April at least.

It's the same old same old really; very evenly matched throughout except that Murray had one very poor service game each set. Djokovic just the one.  Murray can get away with that against almost every other player because he can usually break back. But he can't get away with it against an in form Djokovic. Or Federer for that matter.

Murray has yet to find a way of beating him with any regularity.

2016 played 5, won 2, lost 3.  Now Murray's finished getting over his injury and getting his confidence back, it's always going to be anyone's game between them (except on grass, where Djokovic might take his first set off Murray one of these days).
