British ace tipped to finally beat rival.
Former tennis legend Martina Navratilova believes that Andy Murray is showing the kind of form that will earn him a win over Novak Djokovic during Sunday’s Australian Open Final, the BBC reports.

Murray has previously lost two finals in the same tournament to the Serb, but has beaten him elsewhere – namely in the 2012 US Open and en route to his Wimbledon victory a year later.
Djokovic defeated Stan Wawrinka on Friday to reach the final, and played poorly by his own admission – something that leads Navratilova to believe the ball is firmly in Murray’s court.
“Andy might be a slight favourite for me,” Navratilova said.
“I think Andy has slimmed down a little bit; he seems to be a bit leaner, he’s moving really well, still has all the power, improved his second serve.
“He has got to be encouraged by his performances so far in this tournament, and also by the fact that Djokovic wasn’t at his best against Wawrinka.
“He’s got to like his chances. He’s got a losing record against Novak but he has beaten him before.”
Murray has been in good form so far, dropping just two sets on his way to the final.
