Djokovic beats Murray to reach Indian Wells final

The Associated Press

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) Novak Djokovic defeated Andy Murray 6-2, 6-3 to reach the final of the BNP Paribas Open on Saturday, handing Murray his worst hard-court loss to the world's top-ranked player since 2007.

Djokovic will play for his fourth career title in the desert in Sunday's final against either four-time champion Roger Federer or Milos Raonic, who met in the other semifinal.

Djokovic and Murray were playing for the first time since the Serb beat Murray in four sets for the Australian Open title in January.

Djokovic dropped just one service game in the 1 -hour match. He reached the semifinals after a walkover when Bernard Tomic withdrew because of a back injury.

Murray hadn't lost to Djokovic so badly since a 6-1, 6-0 drubbing on hard courts in Miami eight years ago.
