Murray has revenge on his mind in Miami

Andy Murray goes head-to-head with Novak Djokovic for the seventh time in his career on Sunday evening – with a lot more than just the ATP World Tour Masters Miami 1000 title at stake.

The Tennis Center at Crandon Park will be the setting for the final of the Sony Ericsson Open, and the match looks set to be a classic.

Murray was destroyed by Djokovic two years ago – for the loss of just one game – in the semi-final of this tournament, en-route to the Serb winning his first Masters 1000 championship.

However, the Scottish super-star is a far more complete player today than he was in 2007, and will be a much sterner test for The Djoker – as such, we’ve made him the 1/2 favourite in the betting.

Also going in the British number one’s favour is that in their last two meetings, Djokovic has been beaten both times – including the only time the pair have met in a Masters 1000 final, in Cincinnati last year. Therefore, the world number three is the outsider at 6/4.

How long Djokovic remains third in the world is another matter altogether. Coming into this tournament his ranking was under serious threat from Murray, but as they’ve both made the final it will be safe for at least another week. It’s now only a question of when, and not if, the two swap positions.

Join us on Sunday at 18:10 for all the action, where we’ll have a wide range of markets to bet on – as each ace, double-fault, rally and point passes by, our betlive service will have all the angles covered.
