Novak Djokovic has been the man to beat this season. He has been in an incredible form, winning three grand slams apart from some other ATP titles.

Now, the world number one has his eyes on the prestigious Paris Masters title, as he is scheduled to meet Andy Muuray in the finals on Sunday.

The ongoing Paris Masters has provided tennis fans with some great contests, and the title decider between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray is expected to be one of the best matches of the competition.

Though Djokovic, who is on a 21-match winning streak, will be considered favourite, the Serbian cannot afford to take Murray lightly. Murray has shown great form in the Paris Masters, having dropped just a single set in the competition.

Murray, who was tested by Richard Gasquet in the quarter finals where he lost the first set, clawed back to win the match in three sets, which reflected his character and belief in his ability to win from a set down. The Scot needs such determination against Djokovic as well.

The match promises to be a humdinger of a contest with both players possessing a never-give-up attitude. Murray and Djokovic love playing from the baseline with their powerful groundstrokes, which makes the contest even more interesting. Both players are going to push the other for the title.

"I have seen he (Murray) is playing some terrific tennis this week. He's feeling good. It's going to be a close one. No question about it. It always is. It's always very physical, also very psychologically demanding. We push each other to the limit, and I don't expect anything less from that," ATP official website quoted Djokovic as saying.

There is a huge sense of rivalry between the two players. Though Djokovic has been dominant in their head-to-head contests so far, Murray is no pushover. Djokovic has defeated Murray 20 times while the Scot has won only nine times.

The Serbian, who has an even more impressive head-to-head record this year, winning five out of six matches, also defeated Murray 6-1, 6-3 in their last outing during the Shanghai Masters. Djokovic wants to come up with a similar performance.

"It's always a special kind of challenge because we have a rivalry that goes back a long time," said Djokovic. "We played just recently in Shanghai. I played one of my best matches against him. I'm hoping I can play as well as I did there. But I'm sure he's going to try to do something different."

Murray will draw inspiration from his Canadian Masters victory over Djokovic, when the Scot defeated the Serb in the final with the score reading 6-4, 4-6 and 6-3.

Can Djokovic defeat Murray for the second time this year, or will Murray continue his dominance? Time will tell.
