Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray will be meeting for the 26th time in their careers on Sunday in the men’s championship of the Miami Open at the Crandon Park Tennis Center. In this case, familiarity does not breed contempt. In fact, just the opposite. Familiarity has bred respect between these two players.
