Djokovic vs. Murray at Australian Open final
Question of the Day
“Every time we play each other it’s normally a very physical match,” Murray said. “I’ll need to be ready for the pain. I hope it’s a painful match _ that’ll mean it’s a good one.”
“Every time we played … It was always long matches, physically very demanding,” said Djokovic, who shrugged off the idea that his extra day for recovery would be a factor in the final.
“He’s considered one of the physically strongest and fittest guys around. So I’m sure he’s going to be fit,” said Djokvic, who played one of the tournament’s other thrillers in the fourth round, when he needed five hours to beat another inspired Swiss player, Stanislas Wawrinka, in five sets.
Another tennis great, Andre Agassi, thinks otherwise.
Agassi, an eight-time Grand Slam winner, was in Melbourne on his first trip back to the tournament since his loss to Roger Federer in the quarterfinals in 2005. He will be taking part in the men’s pre-final ceremony.
During a news conference ahead of the Murray-Federer match, Agassi correctly forecast that Murray would win. He went on to predict that the No. 1-ranked Djokovic had the physical advantage going into the final.
“Two days off, going into it fresh, going into it ready is a big difference,” said Agassi. “I probably give the edge to Djokovic in the finals.”
Asked how he would have tried to beat a player like Djokovic, Agassi joked: “I would have probably gotten in a fight with him in the locker room before the match. I might have had a chance.”
