Andy Murray is in the biggest match of his recent career this afternoon as he fights to draw level with world #1 Novak Djokovic after getting hammered the first set of their Miami Sony Ericsson Open final.
Andy caught a lucky break on the way to this final when his semi-final opponent, Rafael Nadal, decided he couldn’t play on a previously injured knee. So the Scot should be rested and ready to take on Djokovic, whom he hasn’t realistically got much chance of beating.
If Murray can somehow upset Djoko, it will be a great boost for his always-the-bridesmaid track record. He’s a likable guy, and I’ll bet a lot of the crowd in Miami are rooting for the underdog today.
