World number one Novak Djokovic will face Britain's Andy Murray in the final of the Miami Open for a third time after the pair triumphed in their semi-finals.

The pair have one win each against each other at Miami but Djokovic will be looking for a repeat of his Australian Open win over the Scot and to improve his 17-8 career record against him.

Third seed Murray delivered a controlled and precise performance to beat Czech Tomas Berdych 6-4, 6-4 while Djokovic faced greater resistance in the form of big-serving American John Isner but still won 7-6, 6-2.

"It is always tough to play someone who serves that well, at times it is frustrating," said Djokovic.

"It is important to hang in there mentally, be patient and make him play. I put a lot of pressure on his second serves, moved him around the court and always made him play an extra shot. I am pleased with my performance."

The women's final will be contested between world number one Serena Williams and Carla Suarez Navarro.
