Murray to take on Djokovic
World number one Andy Murray and world number two Novak Djokovic on Friday won through to the Qatar Open final, setting up a hugely anticipated early season clash between the two best players in the world.
Djokovic only got through after saving five match points against world number 42 Fernando Verdasco, to win a thrilling match 4-6, 7-6 (9/7), 6-3.
But through a combination of typical Djokovic grit and Verdasco errors he saved four match points at 6-2 down in the tiebreak and another when 7-6 behind.
Murray swept aside Tomas Berdych in far more straightforward fashion 6-3, 6-3 to secure a 28th consecutive victory, a record which stretches back to September last year.
