Daniel will be playing his first tournament since the Australian Open where he beat Murray in straight sets before losing in four sets to Jannik Sinner. The Japanese star has a good all-round game with his speciality being on return and being clinical on the big points.
Murray will need to produce a higher level on serve than he did in Melbourne if he wants to have a chance of winning this match. The plan should be to be aggressive and continuing to work the angles as that is what the Japanese star does so well. Murray should have more energy than he had in Melbourne and it would be expected that would result in a different outcome than the one in Australia. However there is no doubt that a stern test still awaits the three-time grand slam champion in Doha.
