The top two seeds meet at the All England Club's Centre Court at 2pm on Sunday 7 July as Andy Murray faces Novak Djokovic in the final of the 2013 Wimbledon men's singles competition.

2011 champion Djokovic will be looking for his second Wimbledon crown, while Murray knows he has to beat the Serb to clinch his first title on home turf and end Britain's 77-year-wait for a men's champion.

Murray, who lost to seven-time champion Roger Federer in last year's final, will be determined to rewrite history and become the first Briton since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the Wimbledon title. The Scot reached the final by beating big-serving Jerzy Janowicz of Poland in Friday's semi. The 26-year-old lost the first set in a tiebreak but fought back brilliantly to win the match 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 and enter the decider for the second successive year.

Meanwhile, Djokovic made it to the final after winning an epic last-four match against eighth seed Juan Roman del Potro in a five-set thriller that very much deserved to be the final. The world number one eventually saw off the challenge from the Argentine 7-5, 4-6, 7-6, 6-7, 6-3 in four hours and 44 minutes, making it the longest semi in Wimbledon history.

Player Comparison

Both players are almost the same age, with Murray only a week older than Djokovic. Both are known for balance, flexibility, anticipation and reaction. They are among the greatest movers on the court with incredible speed, agility, coverage and defence, which allows them to hit winners from seemingly defensive positions.

Murray is one of the most intelligent tacticians on the tennis court, with counterpunches, power-packed groundstrokes and quick transition from defence to offence being his biggest strengths. The Scot is rarely aced and also has the best lob in the game at the moment.

Djokovic, on the other hand, is an aggressive all-court player. The 26-year-old's serve, backhand, baseline play and groundstrokes from both wings are now regarded among the best in the game. However, it's the powerful and precise return of serve which is considered his biggest weapon.


Murray and Djokovic have met 18 times, with the Serb leading 11-7. Djokovic leads 2-0 on clay and 9-6 on hard courts. Murray won their only previous encounter on grass.

The duo has faced each other in three Grand Slam finals; the 2011 Australian Open, the 2012 US Open and the 2013 Australian Open. Djokovic won in Australia on both occasions but it was Murray who emerged the winner in America to clinch his maiden Grand Slam title.

Prediction: Murray in five sets

The Scot is finally ready to be part of history, with the crowd and the physical demands of Djokovic's semi expected to play a considerable role in helping the local boy get over the line.
