LON­DON

Andy Mur­ray has been drawn to meet old ri­val No­vak Djokovic in a US Open fi­nal re­match in the group stages of the ATP World Tour Fi­nals.

Bri­tain's Mur­ray, aim­ing to win the sea­son-end­ing event for the first time, will hope to re­peat his dra­matic vic­tory over Djokovic in New York in Septem­ber when they clash in Group A at the O2 Arena in south-east Lon­don. As well as the US Open fi­nal, where Mur­ray won his first grand slam ti­tle in an epic five-set match, the pair also faced off re­cently in the fi­nal of the Shang­hai Masters.

Mur­ray held five match points but it was Djokovic who even­tu­ally came out on top to make par­tial amends for his US Open loss. Mur­ray and Djokovic will also face To­mas Berdych of the Czech Repub­lic and France's Jo-Wil­fried Tsonga in their other Group A matches. The top eight play­ers in the world rank­ings qual­ify for the tour­na­ment, but Span­ish star Rafael Nadal is ab­sent due to in­jury.
