NOVAK DJOKOVIC suffered his first indoor defeat for three years yesterday as Swiss master Roger Federer inflicted a shock straight-sets loss on the world No.1.
Federer is now through to the semis and today Andy Murray aims to lock down the world No.2 spot for the year with a victory over Rafa Nadal.
They’ve met just once in 2015 – Murray coming out on top at the Madrid Masters – but Nadal leads the head-to-head 15-6 and they haven’t played each other on a hard court since 2012.
With both players in good form lately it has the makings of a cracking clash and Murray is 8-13 favourite (Paddy Power) while the Spaniard is 8-5 at Boylesports and three sets looks a decent shout at 7-5 with Betway.
In the day’s later match Stan Wawrinka and David Ferrer fight for survival after both losing their openers in straight sets. Wawrinka – who has won the last three meetings – is 9-13 at Marathonbet while Ferrer is an 11-8 chance at Ladbrokes.
