Mur­ray still wary of Djokovic

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Andy Mur­ray ex­pects No­vak Djokovic to quickly re­dis­cover his best form as the duo pre­pare to bat­tle for the world No. 1 spot. The Bri­ton over­took Djokovic at the top of the rank­ings last week and will need to match his re­sults at the ATP World Tour Fi­nals in or­der to end 2016 as the No. 1. “There’s no rea­son to

think he won’t have a re­ally good tour­na­ment,” said Mur­ray. “I’d imag­ine shortly he’ll be back to play­ing his best ten­nis.” Djokovic has strug­gled in re­cent months but has won the sea­son-end­ing tour­na­ment at Lon­don’s 02 Arena four years in a row. The Serb will open his ac­count to­day against Do­minic Thiem, while Mur­ray plays Croa­tia’s Marin Cilic in his first group match tomorrow. Mur­ray has made seven ap­pear­ances in the World Tour Fi­nals but has yet to make a fi­nal.
