Tennis – Murray looking for weaknesses


Four-time runner-up Andy Murray is hoping to find a chink in the armour of Novak Djokovic at the upcoming Australian Open.

Murray, 11/2 with Bet365 to win the Australian Open, reached the final in Melbourne in 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2015, but has yet to land the title, losing out to Djokovic in three of those four final appearances.
And Murray has admitted that trying to beat five-time winner Djokovic in Australia will be an exceptionally tough task, saying: “You just have to keep trying to learn, watch his matches, try and see if there’s any weaknesses there that you can capitalise on.
“Maybe he has a drop-off – it’s very difficult to maintain that level for such a long period.”
Rafael Nadal had earlier hailed the current form of Djokovic after being beaten 6-1 6-2 by the Serb in the final of the Qatar Open.
He told reporters: “I know nobody playing tennis like this ever. Since I know this sport, I never saw somebody playing at this level.”
