U.S. Open 2012 Schedule And TV Coverage: Novak Djokovic Plays Andy Murray For The Title

There's only one match on the schedule today at the 2012 U.S. Open. The men's final will see No. 2 Novak Djokovic taking on No. 3 Andy Murray. Djokovic and Murray will face off on the main court at 4 p.m. ET. Djokovic advanced to the final on Sunday when he defeated No. 4 David Ferrer 2-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-2. Murray completed his semi a day earlier, defeating Tomas Berdych 5-7, 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 (9).

Djokovic would appear to be at a disadvantage as far as rest is concerned, having finished his semi-final a full twenty four hours after Murray. Djokovic has only lost one set all tournament though, so he's been about as efficient as possible in his title bid.

Djokovic and Murray met in the Olympic semi-finals, with Murray coming out on top en route to his Olympic gold. The two also faced off in the 2011 Australian Open men's final, where Djokovic defeated Murray with relative ease.
