ts like to be the lone rookie. During a Ryder Cup Antworten

Novak Djokovic will face defending champion Andy Murray in the Madrid Open final after overcoming Kei Nishikori in straight sets on Saturday. The world No 1 needed just two hours to battle past Nishikori, but had to navigate a tricky second set to claim a 6-3 7-6 (7-4) victory. Djokovic spurned four match points to be broken for the first time in the match at 5-4 in the second set, but came through a tie-break to seal his seventh successive win over Nishikori. The Serbian has won 11 of his last 12 matches against Murray, most recently at the Australian Open final in January. The showdown on Sunday will be shown live on Sky Sports 3.It wasnt easy to play in these very windy conditions, but overall Im very pleased, Djokovic said. Murray booked his place in the final after defeating Rafael Nadal Andy has tremendously improved in the last couple of years on the clay courts, he has already proved that hes definitely one of the best players in the world on this surface as well. The rivalry continues. We have so many great finals, great matches, and I look forward to another one. Earlier on Saturday, Murray claimed his place in the final by defeating home favourite Rafa Nadal for the second successive year.The British world No 2 ended Nadals 13-match unbeaten run on clay with a devastating 7-5 6-4 success.Watch the Madrid Open final on Sky Sports 3 HD from 5.30pm - your home of tennisBy purchasing a Sky Sports Day Pass for £6.99 or Sky Sports Week Pass for £10.99, you can enjoy access to all seven Sky Sports channels and watch on a TV with a NOW TV Box or on a range of devices.

Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third.

Brooks Koepka already knows the sting of losing in the Ryder Cup.And he hasnt even played in one yet.The lone rookie on this American team, Koepka was keeping the wrong company during the last two losses. He was just starting his career on the Challenge Tour, coming off consecutive missed cuts in Kazakhstan and France when he broke through for a three-shot victory in the Catalunya Challenge in Spain.That was the same day the Americans took a 10-6 lead into the final day at Medinah, only for Europe to produce the greatest comeback by a visiting team.I remember I was in some little tapas restaurant, Koepka said. There was maybe five people in there, and I can remember eating and watching it unfold.It gets worse.Two years later, the 26-year-old Floridian won the Turkish Airlines Open in his first full season, and he was honored as the European Tour rookie of the year. The awards banquet took place at the end of the year at Wentworth, a celebration of European success.Just his luck, it was a Ryder Cup year.Europe was coming off a much easier victory, this time at Gleneagles in Scotland. The team was the toast of the banquet.They were all talking about it, and it drove me nuts. I couldnt stand it, Koepka said. The room was filled with Europeans. They had their whole team, Sir Alex Ferguson was there. It was pretty cool. But I got really tired of watching it.At least this time, hell be in good company. And instead of being in front of a TV in Spain or in a banquet room in England, hell have golf clubs in his hands at Hazeltine National as the Americans try to reverse two decades of mostly losing.How he responds is one of the unknowns for the U.S. team, mainly because Koepka is new to all of this. No one doubts his powerful play that put him on a fast track after starting on a slow road. After beating a strong field in Turkey, he won his first PGA Tour event three months later in the Waste Management Phoenix Open.Koepka isnt sure what to expect, so perhaps winning at the rowdiest event on the PGA Tour will help.Everyone has told me its going to be amped up, he said of the Ryder Cup, which starts Friday. I kind of have this picture of 16 at Waste Management -- like that, only everywhere. Thats probably the closest thing to it.Kooepka, who is No.dddddddddddd22 in the world, secured his spot on the team by returning from an ankle injury to tie for fourth in the PGA Championship.Hes great to pair with anybody, because who wouldnt want to play with Brooks as far as he hits it? U.S. captain Davis Love III said. Watching Europe celebrate two years ago ... really motivated him to make the team. Hes going to add a lot of youthful enthusiasm and a lot of power to our team.His caddie, Ricky Elliott, is from Northern Ireland. Koepka is close with Rory McIlroy. He has lots of friends in Europe from his three years of playing there, and he wouldnt trade his experiences. But when it came to hearing about the Ryder Cup, it got a little old.Im really excited, he said. I know my face doesnt show it, but its hard to get excitement out of me. I went to the beach on Jan. 1 at 8 in the morning and wrote a bunch of goals down, and the Ryder Cup was one of them. That was nice to cross off.He has checked off plenty of goals along the way.The Florida State alum tied with Jordan Spieth in the second stage of PGA Tour qualifying in 2012, but both missed out on advancing. Their routes were entirely different. Spieth received sponsor exemptions on the Tour in South America, and then cashed in on a sponsors exemption to the Puerto Rico Open, where he tied for second. He ended the year with a PGA Tour victory, a chance to win the FedEx Cup team and a spot on the Presidents Cup team at age 20.Koepka got out his passport and traveled more miles that he cares to count.Jordan was really talented coming out, and he deserved all that, Koepka said. I wasnt high-profile. I had a place to play, so I figured I could get from the Challenge Tour to the European Tour to here.He already knows what its like to be the lone rookie. During a Ryder Cup team gathering at the home of the New England Patriots earlier this month, players were going to hit shots to a target at Gillette Stadium. Zach Johnson handed Koepka the bucket of balls and told him it was his job to carry it as the rookie.I carried it around for 45 minutes, Koepka said. I couldnt care less.
