Novak Djokovic has made it into the final 16 at the 2022 ATP Madrid Open in Spain. At this stage of the tournament, Novak Djokovic is set to play against Andy Murray from the United Kingdom.
Andy Murray enters this match following a win in the previous round where he defeated Denis Shapovalov in the previous round and Dominic Thiem in the opening round of the tournament. The win against Shapovalov showed that Murray was still a hugely capable player as he was able to win vital battles throughout the contest. During the win, Andy Murray won 11 service games and 4 return games to control the match. This is expected to be a much tougher match for Andy Murray as he is playing against the top seed in Novak Djokovic. 

Looking at Novak Djokovic, it has been a tough season for the Serbian superstar following his exclusion from the Australian Open. Djokovic is yet to bounce back from that occurrence but with the French Open not far away, Novak will be hoping to win a few tournaments and build momentum as he prepares for Paris. In the previous round of the tournament, Novak Djokovic defeated Gael Monfils in straight sets. It was a comfortable win for Djokovic as he won all of his service games and 3 return games. Djokovic looks in good form as he looks to challenge for the title.

It has been a rivalry that has been hugely dominated by Djokovic as the Serbian superstar has won on 25 occasions with Murray only winning 11 times.
