Djokovic vs Murray Australian Open 2013 preview

The Australian Open 2013 final will feature two of the hottest players on tour in Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. Both players have looked in great shape , and the final promises to be a great one.

Djokovic has a pretty much flawless game , and has that slight advantage over Murray in almost each and every department. Be it the forehand , backhand , pace of shot or defense. The key to Murray in this match surely has to be his first serve.He needs a high percentage of 1st serves in , has to serve a lot of aces and has to make sure that he keeps himself close to Djokovic thereby not letting the Serb get off to a quick start. 
If Murray is to win this match, he has to win the 1st set. There's no coming back if he loses set 1 , considering the fact that he had a 4 hour thriller. 
In my opinion , it's going to be plain and simple for Djokovic. He has a better baseline game , he handles pressure a lot better and he's beaten Murray two times in a row.

Murray did beat Djokovic at the US Open final , but conditions were blustery then , which favoured the Scot. Djokovic has won 20 straight matches here in Melbourne and although players have come quite close to beating him in the past , it's unlikely that Murray is going to be able to get the job done.

The pick : Djokovic in 3 or 4 sets.
