A Short History of Andy Murray
A tremendous win in Melbourne would award Murray the third stage of a career Grand Slam and have reached the final. He will have every expectation of at least emulating that run – and going one better than the five losses he has suffered.
Four of those have been against of Djokovic, counting last year when the Serb beat Murray in the first of two Grand Slam final matches of 2016 but Murray now has the confidence the final six months of last year gave him an opportunity.
Murray has Ivan Lendl back in the player’s box, the Czech who has helped conduct Murray to all three of his Grand Slam titles so far and Olympic gold at London 2012.
He kicked off 2017 by failure the final in Qatar, but he ran into Djokovic who triumphed in three sets and the couple look set for another huge collision in the final in Melbourne.
Murray has reached at least the last eight in each of the last seven years in Melbourne, and the semi-final in six of those – it’s only the designation that continues to get away from him.
