British number one Andy Murray believes he is better prepared psychologically as he prepares to take on Novak Djokovic in Wimbledon showpiece on Sunday.

Murray has reached his second final at SW19 in as many years, falling to Roger Federer in four sets 12 months ago.

The Scot had to endure a real battle with the giant figure of Jerzy Janowicz in this year’s semi-final, eventually picking up the win in four sets.

The 26-year-old looks to have improved his whole game over the last year, picking up his first Grand Slam title at the US Open, as well as winning Gold at the London 2012 Olympics.

The world number two believes that the taste of victory has helped to settle big match nerves and he insists that he has gained a wealth of experience from his past encounters with Djokovic.

Murray said: “I think I’ll probably be in a better place mentally.

“I would hope so just because I’ve been there before.

“I won a grand slam, I would hope I would be a little bit calmer.”
