Andy Murray vs. Novak Djokovic is poised to be the rivalry of 2017. The Brit lost the first clash of the new season in the Doha final after an epic 3 setter, but even if he wasn’t happy with the result, he vented his satisfaction for how he has played during the week.
Why I am happy for my week in Doha. MURRAY
During a recent interview, Andy commented
"Physically it was a good test to start the year, and I did good there. Obviously, I am disappointed not to win, but I played pretty good the last couple of the matches.
My body feels all right just now, so that's positive. It was a little bit sore earlier in the week after the first couple of matches, but I felt better each day, and I think it is positive. I still think there are things I can do better because I wasn't that clinical on break points this week, which maybe comes with playing a few more matches.
I still think I have a chance of winning the Australian Open after tonight. I don't think that changes."
Djokovic has won the Australian Open for a record six times while Murray was the runner-up five times without being able to win a single title. That will be the important one.
