MELBOURNE, Australia | Djokovic’s start may follow Murray’s finale at Aussie Open
MELBOURNE, Australia —Jan 13, 2019—Novak Djokovic knows there’s a chance he may not have played his opening match at the Australian Open before Andy Murray is out of the tournament. Perhaps even finished on the tour.
Their careers have long been intertwined. They’re both 31 and have birthdays a week apart in May, and they’ve played each other 36 times at the elite level.
Djokovic leads those 25-11, including a 4-0 record in finals at the Australian Open, where Murray has been a five-time finalist but never won the title.
