With Roger Federer out of the way, Djokovic has the opportunity to end the year the way he began it, which another Grand Slam title. A victory over Murray would give him his fifth major championship in two years.
Meantime Murray is looking to build on last month’s memorable Olympic gold medal run, which included a straight-sets semifinal win over Djokovic. The 25-year-old Scot is currently ranked No. 3 in the world, but he has yet to win a Grand Slam.
If this match is anything like Sunday’s women’s final, viewers are in for a treat. And at the very least, it’s a nice appetizer for a double-helping of Monday Night Football.
