Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray meet in the 2015 Roland Garros finals - Matchup and Betting OddsOn June 5th, #1 ranked men's player Novak Djokovic will be squaring off against Andy Murray in the semi-finals of the French Open.

The path to the French Open Finals for Novak Djokovic cleared out a bit on Wednesday after he managed to dispatch clay court specialist Rafael Nadal in straight sets, 7-5, 6-3, 6-1. Nadal, who was formerly untouchable at Roland-Garros, has seen his play degrade as of late due to a rash of injuries.

Andy Murray, on the other hand, needed four sets (7-6, 6-2, 5-7, 6-1) to dispatch of David Ferrer. This sets up a semi-final match between the world's #1 and #3 ranked players.

Novak Djokovic, 1/6
Andy Murray, 4/1

According to these odds, Djokovic has a 85.47% chance of winning (according to the bookmakers), while Andy Murray has a 20% chance of winning.
