Murray, Djokovic to play at MSG

Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic are bringing their burgeoning
rivalry to Madison Square Garden.

The men who faced each other in three of the past four Grand
Slam finals will play a best-of-three-sets exhibition match on
March 3 at the arena used by the NBA’s Knicks and NHL’s
Rangers.

Murray is about to try to defend his title at the U.S. Open,
where he beat Djokovic in the 2012 final. The top-ranked Djokovic
defeated Murray in the Australian Open final in January, and Murray
won their Wimbledon title match last month.

The seventh BNP Paribas Showdown also will include a brothers
vs. brothers match: John and Patrick McEnroe against Bob and Mike
Bryan, twins with a record 15 Grand Slam doubles titles.

Tickets go on sale Nov. 4.
