Join us on our daily coverage of the ATP Madrid event: Novak Djokovic vs. Andy Murray and find out our top tennis picks for the final and why you should invest with this valuable bet.

Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Andy Murray (2)

For the second consecutive year, Andy Murray reaches the ATP Madrid final. We picked Murray as our top play of the day in our semifinals analysis and the British player matched the expectations, defeating Rafael Nadal by 7 – 5 6 – 4. Andy played extremely well under pressure, saving 11 out of 13 break points and converting 67% of his break point chances. As we mentioned in our previous article, Andy’s ability to mix things up is one of the keys for his success on this surface and against Nadal, his drop shots were absolutely magnificent.

Novak Djokovic is looking for his 5th title in 2016 after a disappointing loss in Monte Carlo’s 2nd round against Jiri Vesely. It was far from an easy match for Djokovic against Kei Nishikori at the semifinals, with both players producing a high level of tennis; however, the Serbian was just too solid for his opponent, ending the match with 22 winners / 18 unforced errors. Novak has been impressive throughout the week, winning 97.30% of his service games and saving 88.89% of the break points he faced.

This will be the 32nd career meeting between these two players, with Djokovic leading on h2h by 22 – 9.

These two have featured some remarkable battles in the past and their last match on clay was a good example of that, with Djokovic emerging victorious by 6 – 3 6 – 3 5 – 7 5 – 7 6 – 1. Murray has been outstanding this week and we should witness a very close contest between these two and for that reason, our advice is for you to take advantage of Murray's tennis odds by adding his set handicap to your tennis picks.
