Novak Djokovic will take on Andy Murray in the men's singles final of the Montreal Masters 2015 on 16 August, Sunday.
Neither Djokovic nor Murray faced any hiccups whatsoever on the road to the final. Murray thrashed Kei Nishikori in the semi final by 6-3, 6-0 and Djokovic outclassed Jeremy Chardy in straight sets as well (6-4, 6-4).
Djokovic and Murray will face each other for the 28th time and the former holds an eight match unbeaten streak against the British tennis star. Djokovic has won 11 out of 15 games at ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments. The Djoker recently defeated Murray in the semi final of the French Open 2015, which needed five sets to decide the winner of the game.
The rivalry between the two tennis giants has been a fascinating one and once again it will be reignited when Murray will try and look to win the Montreal Masters title for the third time and Djokovic for the fourth time.
Murray reclaimed the World No. 2 position in the Emirates ATP Rankings after thrashing Kei Nishikori in the Montreal Masters semi-final and he entered the top two positions for the first time since August 2013.
"I did it the first time here. It's nice to get back there, especially after everything I went through last year with the surgery and dropping out of the Top 10, a lot of questions being asked about how my game was physically and stuff. It's good to get back close to the top. I'll keep working hard and try to get that one spot higher," Murray told reporters ahead of the Montreal Masters final.
Meanwhile, Djokovic holds an incredible record in the ATP Masters Tournaments. The 28-year-old Serbian now has now won 253 matches at the Masters 1000 level, which is only behind Roger Federer (321) and Rafael Nadal (296). Djokovic also extended his winning streak at the Masters 1000 level to 30 matches.
"Novak, at the moment, is the best. Every time I play against him, I have lot of problems. He is returning really well and forces you to make a difficult choice all the time. If you have a good head-to-head record against the player you're facing, it gives you a little bit of a mental edge," said Djokovic. "In crucial moments, that's maybe what helped me hit the right shots at the right time," Chardy said after losing to Djokovic in the semi final of the Montreal Masters on Saturday.
