Murray and Djokovic to battle in final of Qatar Open

World number one Sir Andy Murray completed a straight-sets victory over Tomas Berdych on Friday to seal a place in the final showdown of the Qatar Open – where he will meet Novak Djokovic once again.

Berdych needed treatment on an ankle injury after he lost the first set and was unable to keep the pace with Murray.

In the other semi-final game on Friday between Novak Djokovic and Fernando Verdasco, Djokovic fought hard to secure his place in the final.

The world number two was able to save five match points in the second set tie break, before coming back and securing a 4-6 7-6 (9-7) 6-3 win.

The Qatar Open final which is scheduled for Saturday, will therefore be between the old foes – current World No. 1 and No. 2 – a tie that would make it the 19th time the pair have met in an ATP final.
