Murray v Djokovic in Madrid

HAVING disposed of Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals of the Madrid Open, Andy Murray must have had high hopes of keeping his title in the final against Novak Djokovic but sadly, he just wasn’t up to the challenge and despite the fact that he did win the second set he was beaten by the Serb in the three set final 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 on May 8.

Djokovic has now moved ahead of Nadal having won 29 major tournaments but this is his only his second triumph in Madrid.

In a somewhat strange sequence of events concerning world seeding, Murray who was the runner up in this tournament will drop from second to third place in the rankings when announced on Monday May 9, being replaced by Roger Federer but his bank balance will still have increased by €450,000 even though he lost the match!
