The two went to training camp together. The two are of the same age. Murray won the first match ever they played. They have competed 34 times since then. Djokovic leads 24-10.
But this time the situation is different. They not only fight for the prestigious ATP World Tour Finals Trophy, which is yet to be won by the Scott, they fight for the year end World Number 1 ranking, something that both are hungry for at the moment.
Djokovic has had a pretty off season of 2016. Despite winning two grand slams, he or any of the Nole fans would count this season as memorable for the Serb especially considering he lost the Number 1 ranking to Murray on November 7th, 2016.
With the stakes ever so high, the two meet off again. Will Andy Murray be able to translate his run of form to outscore Djokovic or will the former world number 1 strike back with all his might?!
Meanwhile, check out of 5 of their best head to head matches so far:
2013 WIMBLEDON SEMIFINAL
Murray had to fight back from a break down in both the second and third sets, ultimately winning the last 4 games of the match after being down by 4 games to 2. Leading by two sets and 5 games to 4 in the third, Murray raced into a 40–0 lead in the final game, gaining three championship points. However, not to be outdone, Djokovic fought back strongly, first to deuce, after which he held three separate break point opportunities. Murray managed to save each of these, before Djokovic hit the ball into the net twice to hand Murray the title, the first by any British man since Fred Perry in 1936. The straight sets victory meant Murray tied Djokovic at 2 wins each in Grand Slam finals, leading by 5 to 4 in their total finals head-to-head.
