ATP World Tour Finals: Federer vs MurrayPublished November 13, 2014 by Sol FH
Can the home-town hero break Federer's stride and make it to the semi-finals? Match begins at 20:00(UK).
Andy Murray's season began with a significant loss to Roger Federer during the Quarter Finals of the Australian Open in January. Murray was still in the rehabilitation process, following a surgery on his spine and Federer showed him that to be a contender, he must be at 100%. Tonight's game could be much the same story as the ATP World Tour Quarter Finals get underway at 20:00.
It will be a very tough game for Murray, but having the home court advantage may prove helpful against one of the greatest players Tennis has ever seen. Murray lost his opening match against Nishikori, but bounced back to beat Raonic. Federer has been in top form in both of his games so far, beating both Raonic and Nishikori decisively. Murray needs to improve his game if he is planning on making the semi-finals. Murray and Federer's long history is currently at an even eleven wins and eleven losses against one another, but only one man will make it through after tonight.
“It’s nice to have won against him a number of times. And yeah, it would obviously be nice to finish with a winning record against him. But if not, it’s not the end of the world,” said Murray during an interview about the Quarter Final match.

Murray may have a better time on the golf course in the off-season but unfortunately he will not beat Roger Federer tonight. Either player that wins tonight may not even come close to beating Djokovic, but that's another story for another day.
