Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic will contest the Miami Open final later today.

The pair will be meeting for the 26th time in their careers, with the Serbian leading the head-to-head record 17-8 with six wins from their last six meetings.

Should Djokovic win it would be his fifth Miami title whilst Murray has won the tournament twice before.

The match will start at 6pm and will be shown on Sky Sports 3.

Murray beat Tomas Berdych 6-4 6-4 to reach the final for a fourth time whilst Djokovic overcame USA's John Isner 7-6 (7-3) 6-2 in his semi-final.

Whatever happens in the final, Murray is guaranteed to move up to No 3 in the world rankings. Murray will obviously still be desperate to win, but he faces a tough task having endured an 11-match losing streak against his fellow members of the Big Four. His last win over one of Roger Federer, Djokovic and Rafael Nadal was against today's opponent in the 2013 Wimbledon final.
