Madrid 2016: Djokovic vs. Murray Championship Prediction

#2 Andy Murray vs. #1 Novak Djokovic

These two know what to expect heading into this match.  Murray is the defending champion and just halted a Nadal winning streak.  Djokovic is looking to once again be the sole leader in Masters 1000 Shields.  They staged a strange but exciting match in the semifinal round of Roland Garros 2015.  Could this be a great match?

Probably not but it should be a good match.  Each man returns well and moves well so lots of long points are likely.  I think Novak prevails largely due to his iron will and his motivation for this match.  If Nole drops matches at Monte Carlo and Madrid, it may give the locker room more confidence in Paris.  I expect Novak to be clinical and win a hard fought match.

My Prediction: Novak Djokovic d. Andy Murray 6-4, 6-4
