World number one Novak Djokovic will look to clinch his second Madrid Open title when he takes on Andy Murray in the final on 8 May. The Serb comes into this game after being pushed to the limit by world number six Kei Nishikori in the semi-final on 7 May.

The 28-year-old is number one for a reason and he showed his quality to eventually overcome the battling Japanese star 6-3, 7-6 (7-4). Djokovic is tied with Nadal on 28 ATP Masters 1000 titles, most since the series of nine elite events was introduced in 1990. A win here will take him ahead and with impressive run of titles to his name, he definitely will go into this tie as favourite.

Meanwhile, Andy Murray produced a masterclass to beat crowd-favourite Rafael Nadal in the semi final. In what was an impressive show of his abilities, the world number two cruised past the Spaniard beating him 7-5, 6-4.

Murray had taken down Nadal in the finals last year and despite his resurgence in form, the Scot is a different proposition all together. He has added intelligence to his game, something which was missing in the past and after a relatively disappointing start to the season, he will be looking to record a second successive title win at Madrid.
