Madrid Open: Andy Murray wins to face Novak Djokovic next, Jack Draper beaten by Andrey Rublev

Britain’s Andy Murray will face old rival Novak Djokovic for the first time since 2017 after beating Canada’s Denis Shapovalov at the Madrid Open

Murray, 34, produced a high level to win 6-1 3-6 6-2 against world number 16 Shapovalov, who beat the Scot at Wimbledon last year.

Now an even tougher test against world number one Djokovic awaits on Thursday.

Serbia’s Djokovic started his campaign on the Madrid clay with a 6-3 6-2 win against France’s Gael Monfils.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion will play Murray – who he has known since they were children and faced 36 times in their professional careers – in the last 16.

“He’s the world number one and I’ve got a metal hip,” world number 78 Murray told Amazon Prime. “I didn’t know I’d get opportunities to play matches like this again. In theory I shouldn’t have a chance in the match.

“But I’ve worked my hardest, put myself in a great position and it’s a fantastic opportunity to play against him again on a big court in a huge tournament.” –
