All these qualities are not going to bother Murray, as he showed it by beating Djokovic in the semi-finals of the London Olympics 2012. Murray has improved immensely in the last 12 months or so, hence, he is being feared in the Men's tennis – thanks to his coach Ivan Lendl.
Murray's style of play may be a bit different to Djokovic, as he is somewhat of a defensive player who waits for his opponents to make mistakes. So, it shows that he has a good temperament. But, of late, we have seen him playing some aggressive Tennis and winning matches regularly. May be the same kind of approach needs to be adopted when he faces the Serb in the finals of the championship. But, one of his biggest strengths is the way he shifts gears during a rally and unsettles his opponents.
This match could well prove to be a revenge match for Djokovic who lost to Murray in the London Olympics. Murray would take confidence from that match when these players play the US Open finals. Out of the 14 times that these players have met over the course of their career, Djokovic has won eight and lost six matches. He also has a good record in grand slam finals, where he has won five out of the eight finals played, while Murray still seems to be searching for his first grand slam.
