Djokovic leads their head to heads 21-10. They have met 4 times in the Australian Open final. Djokovic won them all. They played 3 times last season. Djokovic won their last 2 and Murray won in Cincinnati on a hard court.
Djokovic showed yet again that he can raise his game for the tougher opponents. He looked unbeatable in the opening 2 sets against Federer. His level dropped at 2-0 and Federer took the third..
Murray was a little fortunate that Raonic got injured during their semi final. Raonic was matching him all the way until near the end of the 4th set.
Djokovic usually brings his A game for slam finals. Murray served well for most of his semi final but he won’t get away with the number of errors he made in that match. Murray can be competitive over the best of 3 set matches but Djokovic is so tough to beat over 5.
1.21 is a little low though and we will see him trade higher than that. I don’t see Djokovic doing a Serena but Murray should take a set.
Back Djokovic if he loses set 1.
