Novak Djokovic vs. Andy Murray: Who will win the U.S. Open?

It’s Monday afternoon at Flushing Meadows and Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray are set to take the court for the U.S. Open men’s singles final at 4 p.m. ET.

(Follow the match with live scores here.)

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.
