2012 Sony Ericsson Open: Men's Final Pits Novak Djokovic Against Andy Murray

The 2012 Sony Ericsson Open wraps up play on Sunday, with a men's final contest between world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and fourth-seeded Andy Murray highlighting the action.

Djokovic has breezed through the tournament so far, winning all of his matches in straight sets. Murray has two wins along the way because of opponents withdrawing, including in the semifinals when Rafael Nadal withdraw from his match with Murray due to injury.

Murray is the only player on tour to have defeated Djokovic twice since he became No. 1 in the world after Wimbledon. It will be the 13th time the two have faced each other, with Djokovic holding a 7-5 lead over Murray in the 12 previous matches. Both players have won the Sony Ericsson Open before, with Djokovic taking the title in 2007 and Murray winning in 2009.

The other championship being played on Sunday is for the women's doubles crown. That match will pit the No. 5 seeded team of Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova against the No. 6 team of Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci.

The day's action starts at 1:00 p.m. ET on the stadium court in Miami.
