Overview

Andy Murray is set to face the World No 1 for a place in the semi-finals of the US Open. The Scot comes into this match following a straight set victory over the number 9 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, and that should give him some confidence ahead of the showdown with the Serbian.

Murray can also take solace from the fact that the last time they met at Flushing Meadows it was in the finals and Scot came out on top, winning his first ever Grand Slam title. The Scotsman will be going into this match with nothing to lose as most of the pressure will be on his top seeded opponent.

Meanwhile, the World No 1 Serbian has been motoring along and came through a relatively easy fourth round match against Philipp Kohlschreiber and looks like he is getting into top gear coming into the final days of the competition.

Djokovic will hope to continue his good run of form at Flushing Meadows, which has seen him make the finals for the last four years. However, he will want to improve the win-loss record in finals, after he managed just one title in four final appearances.

The match between the two heavyweights is usually a semi-final or a final affair and it is strange to see such a highly anticipated match at this stage of the tournament. The winner of this contest will face either Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka or Kei Nishikori of Japan.
