World’s No. 2 Andy Murray and No. 1 Novak Djokovic will clash in the Wimbledon final on Sunday. The Scot International won semi-final against Jerzy Janowicz, while the Serbian passed through Juan Martin del Potro. Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro managed to play the longest semifinal game in the 127 years of the All England Championships (4 hours, 43 minutes with 5 sets, 55 games, two tiebreakers and 368 points).
It will be the 4th Grand Slam final for big friends Murray and Djokovic. Novak won when they met in the Australian Open in 2011, while Andy succeeded in the 2012 US Open final. But, Djokovic leads their ATP Head-to-Head series 11-7. Andy Murray will play in the Wimbledon final for the 2nd year in a row, after finishing as runner-up to Roger Federer last year. Also, the Scott could become the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years. Fred Perry won this trophy in 1936 last time. Also, Murray has a 1-5 record in Grand Slam finals.
We will remember Wimbledon 2013 as a competition with shock results after the elimination of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Juan Martin del Potro and Jerzy Janowicz showed a superb play. So, Sunday’s men final will be a big fight between the world’s top 2 players. Novak Djokovic played his 13th successive semi-final, while Murray made just his 5th consecutive appearance. It will be the 3rd time in the last 4 Grand Slams that they will meet in the final. Djokovic has dominated for the past two years, but Murray carrying the hopes of a national hero.
Andy Murray has looked particularly unstoppable during the first week. Now he could make his dream come true, cause he will probably never get an easier way to the final. If it will be rainy, then the match will be played under the roof, so Djokovic could get a little advantage, as it hard to interrupt his hitting rhythm indoors. But, Murray has a great chance and a slight “home” advantage.
