World number one Murray swept aside Czech third seed Tomas
Berdych 6-3 6-4 to record his 28th consecutive victory and will
be targetting a sixth title in succession on Saturday.
Djokovic, who was deposed as world number one by Murray in
November and was beaten by the Scot in their last showdown -- in
the title match of the 2016 season-ending ATP World Tour Finals
- will be hoping to avoid the hiccups he faced against Spaniard
Fernando Verdasco in Friday's semi-final.
The Serb saved five match points to stay alive before eventually
subduing Verdasco 4-6 7-6(7) 6-3.
